1. King Kaka – Mistarillionaire
What makes this video powerful is more of the visuals, and a few of the powerful lyrics. It may not be one of my favourite singles from Kaka, but it doesn’t take away from its beautiful artistry.

2. DJ E Cool – ADA (feat Davido)
Okay guys, it’s safe to say we have a new Davido track each week now right? Listen to ADA by DJ E Cool first here…

3. Tiwa Savage – Sugarcane
The African queen of music is unleashing some sweetness, with her latest video ‘Sugarcane’. Watch it below…

4. Bebe Cool – Freedom
Off his Go Mama album, Uganda’s Bebe Cool unleashes this epic video ‘Freedom’. Enjoy the listen and the watch…

5. King Kaka – Angels (feat Suziah)
Another new single from King Kaka makes it to our top 10 new music list this week. Employing the undeniable talent of Suziah is the new track ‘Angels’…

*Bonus: Sheebah – Weekend (feat Runtown)
It was just too difficult to ignore this feel good new track from Sheebah and Runtown…



6. Bruno Mars – Finesse (feat Cardi B)
It was only a matter of time before Bruno Mars fully channeled his 90s feel – ‘Finesse’ does a fine job of that, and how else to bracket this phenomenal new single with one of the hottest new breakout stars of 2017 – Cardi B!

7. Kendrick Lamar – All the Stars (feat SZA)
I’m loving the heavy bassline in Kendrick Lamar’s new audio release. He just keeps getting better and better at his craft! SZA also sounds amazing! Listen below…

8. Jay Z – Family Feud (feat Beyonce)
This may not exactly be a full video, but Beyonce’s just released teaser to her husband’s single ‘Family Feud’ (available on TIDAL, gives us a glimpse of the star-studded production… *UPDATED – Jay Z posted the full production on YouTube. View it below…

9. Cardi B – Bartier Cardi (feat 21 Savage)
Considering her own pseudonym is a corruption of a luxury item, it’s no surprise then that we have another mental teaser. ‘Bartier Cardi’ sounds as good as ‘Bodak Yellow’ and we’re glad she’s flying high. Enjoy…

10. BØRNS – God Save our Young Blood (feat Lana Del Rey)
A quirky title, but if we keep saying God save the Queen, then it’s kind of a decent request too. Listen to this new single, featuring Lana Del Rey…

Bonus: Justin Timberlake – Filthy
It’s been a while since we heard from Justin, and it’s good to see and hear this song that should be heard when the volume is turned to LOUD.
