Here we were thinking that Burna Boy was going to let us enjoy ‘Deja Vu’ for a few months but no on the 19th of Jan he dropped the visuals for his single ‘Heaven’s Gate ft Lily Allen.
Burna collectively snatched the little life left, this all efforts for a mixtape, let’s go over that again…A MIXTAPE! that will be released on 26/01, we cannot add much more.
The visuals of the video see Burna rapping in a kitchen while a woman vibes out cooking a meal in other scenes his in a barbershop, chilling on a couch while others play video games and with Lily Allen offering her oh so unique vocals somewhat reminiscent of her collaboration with Common.
You can watch the video for ‘Heaven’s Gate’ below and it also features a Jea5 produced track ‘Sekkle Down’ ft J Hus.
Top five current tunes from amazing artist who just happen to be African.
Wanlov the Kubolor – Never Go Change
Corruption is global and Wanlov presents it so simply and purely in this track accompanied by a black and white video. The song is reminiscent of his single Human, heartfelt music with meaning.
Fantasma – Cat and Mouse
The first time I heard this song I was convinced that I had lost it …. its rare to hear ‘Kiswahili Sanifu’ Pure Kiswahili in music, mostly when you were not anticipating it. The single is accompanied by a video of young ballet dancers who dance within townships, Spoek main aim was to showcase the benefits new skills extended to children living within townships.
Stonebwoy ft DJ Juls – Rudeboi Love
Purely on the strength of the production the next lines can be filled with an in-depth analysis and breakdown of elements that can be picked up but this has to be one of the best collaborations so far in the year, relaxed of the strength of this track Stonebwoy can take the BET INT award not many people within Afrobeats seek to merge a few genres some dub reggae elements shine through.
Burna Boy – Sonke
Anyone who knows me, knows that language is a tool that I greatly admire within music and Burna Boy has also found ways of adding his own swag (that word has been dying out) to his music Sonke does not disappoint, this is definitely one track that will not miss spin on decks this summer.
M.anifest – Forget Dem
Just felt it was nice to share this visual recently M.anifest has realised some fantastic videos but this one stood out mainly because my ultimate #MCM features and I wasn’t expecting it but it was a nice surprise.
Sharing is caring who are you jamming to at the moment.
