Juls x Twitch 4 Eva & Quamina MP – Mmayewa
The British-Ghanaian producer invited two of the most promising acts of the country, Twitch 4 Eva and Quamina MP, on this unapologetically Ghanaian new track. The result, extra joyful, sounds like a clever mix of afrobeats, highlife, and even Congolese rumba. Cherry on the cake, “Mmayewa” was magnified by the DWP Academy, notorious for killing it on every West African choreography.
Herman $uede – One By One
The 17-year-old Ghanaian golden boy keeps on rising since his 2019 EP ‘Hi I’m Herman”. With “One by One”, the young singer delivers another romantic ballad, his specialty. The colorful music video sees Herman make advances at his love interest, as they both bust well-choreographed dance moves in unison, accurately capturing the essence of the pacey love bop.
Stonebwoy – Ever Lasting
With “Ever Lasting”, Stonebwoy unveils another video from his album “Anloga Junction”. Directed by ace director Yaw Skyface, the visuals are filled with spiritual elements, like the huge adinkra symbols reflecting the supremacy of God. Behind these deep allegories is a light-hearted celebration of women: “Every woman is a super woman”!
Rvdical The Kid – NASA (feat. Amaarae)
Hop on “NASA” and you will get a good overview of Rvdical’s musical galaxy. Taken from his latest project “Little Planet”, the track sees two of the most alternative and original Ghanaian artists collaborate; as a duo, the producer and Amaarae make sparks. The visuals are highly imaginative and seem almost as dreamy as Amaarae’s smooth vocals.
Dead Peepol – Otan Hunu Remix (feat. RichKent, Fameye, Medikal, Kuami Eugene, Tulenkey, DeonB, Malcolm N, Bosom P-Yung)
The Twi Drill game clearly got shaken with the Otan Hunu Remix. Featuring many of the most impressive Ghanaian freestylers, this huge cypher, highly successful, is definitely one more sign of Drill music’s unstoppable leap in the country.
Killbeatz, Ofori Amponsah & King Promise – No More (feat. DarkoVibes & Joey B)
For his latest EP “Love and Happiness”, producer KillBeatz collaborated with afropop star King Promise and singer Ofori Amponsah. But on “No More”, two more cool kids were added with Joey B and Darkovibes. The result is a light-hearted romantic song reminiscent of Ghanaian Hiplife (the introduction samples Daamabi by Ofori Amponsah), with a strong fresh new wave twist.
J.Derobie – Ginger Me
In the “Ginger Me” video, rocking a new haircut and dark glasses, J.Derobie is struck with love by a mysterious girl with special e powers. The sinister atmosphere contrasts with this sweet love song along with the contrast between the shy 2019 “Poverty” J Derobie and the pop star starring in these visuals. We have spoken with the singer about this new status.
Kojey Radical – Progression Freestyle 2
The most creative British-Ghanaian rapper has gone back to basics with his “Progression Freestyle” series. For this second episode of what we hope will be a saga, Kojey has used the same recipe as in the first one: a terse instrumental by Selecta Suave, dark visuals by Milaview and fierce verses, motivated by the same question: “How can I move forward?”
Fameye – 247 (feat. Kidi)
Not caring about any depressing global pandemic, two Ghanaian playboys decided to start their month with a lively and joyful track talking about love and affection. The result is a great collab between emerging artist Fameye and afropop star Kidi, signing a brand new afrobeats hit for the people.
Moor Sound – Obaasima Pt. 2 (feat. $pacely, BuMan & Yaa Pono)
The newly confined Europeans will envy the 4 bad boys for their new video. “Obaasima”, a Twi word loosely translated to “lady”, sees producer Moor Sound bringing together La Même Gang member $pacely and rappers/singers BuMan and Yaa Pono for a smooth dancehall infused track. The title of the artist’s latest project easily captures the vibe of the song: “Summertime Sound”.
