1. MDQ – Make it Right (feat The Ramblings)
There’s a taste of some soft rock in Muthoni the Drummer Queen’s latest single. One thing is clear, she has got a wide vocal range and the track’s emotional wavelength is testament…

2. Tekno – Mama (feat Wizkid)
Now I’m not too overly impressed with this new collaboration between two of the biggest stars in Nigeria right now, but there are some people loving the laid back sound, and a crude lyric from Tekno. Listen…

3. King Kaka – Lote (feat Didge)
The emperor of the Kaka Empire has unleashed an appealing new track, featuring Kenya’s timeless RnB vocalist Didge to produce this great new track. Watch…

4. Davido – FIA
It’s been a minute since I instantly took to a Davido single, but his new song ‘FIA’ sounds too good to be true. I’m massively impressed. Watch and listen…

5. Yemi Alade – Single & Searching (feat Faz)
After reality dawns on them that there’s no romance, or marriage, without finance, the couple at the start of this new music video by Yemi Alade change their ‘status’, forming the basis for this seductive new single…



6. Jidenna – Boomerang
By far the most appealing-to-listen-to and watch on the chart this week is Jidenna’s ingenious ‘Boomerang’, mimicking the video effect that’s taken Instagram and Snapchat users by storm. Enjoy…

7. Jason Derulo – Tip Toe (feat French Montana)
Jason Derulo has embraced the bad boy and gone all play boy in this Birthday dedication to himself… it’s a fun lyric video with thumping beats that are sure to make this a party favourite…

8. Eminem – Walk on Water (feat Beyonce)
Guess who’s back? The lyricist himself Eminem has teamed up with the ultimate of stars, Beyonce, for this spectacular comeback that’s pretty deep…

9. Chayanne – Choka Choka
Some mild reminiscent reggaeton is prevalent in this single ‘Choka Choka’, and no it’s not Kiswahili…

10. Wisin – Move Your Body (feat Timbaland & Bad Bunny
This is an oddly appealing jam, nevermind the fact that its composition is all over the place – at one time its some crunk, the next it’s dance, RnB and classic latina. Watch….
