By November 19, 2021Music

Time for another round of fresh music this Friday. We present you with the latest tracks you need on your rotation. Happy Weekend!

DAVIDO ft. FOCALISTIC – CHAMPION SOUND

Davido returns with a new single, “Champion Sound,” alongside South African star Focalistic. Following Davido’s viral remix of Focalisitic’s hit single ‘Ke Star’ earlier this year, the two rappers trade flows over Amapiano’s production. Both Afrobeats and Amapiano have grown in popularity in the last few years, with both artists at the helm of their respective genres. The video, shot by Dalia Dias in London, shows the global movement of the genres visually.

LANCEY FOUX ft. LIL YACHTY – OUTTAMYMIND!

 

With widespread praise from peers and tastemakers, UK-born rap phenomenon, style icon, and visionary Lancey Foux has released a new single called ‘OUTTAMYMIND!’ featuring Lil Yachty, taken off his brand new mixtape ‘LIVE.EVIL’. Lancey delivers quotable verses in a production that emanates intense energy before Yachty makes a fitting cameo. Together, the two rappers work in unison to elevate the banger to a whole new level.

KAI KWASI – CRACKS

South East London artist Kai Kwasi presents his new single ‘Cracks’, taken from his forthcoming debut EP titled ‘Jahlila’, named after his late grandmother. The 22-year-old songwriter, producer, and creative first made his mark on the music industry with his two singles ‘unt’ and ‘sms’, released earlier this year to widespread acclaim.

FLO MILLI ft. RICO NASTY – MONEY

Rico Nasty and Flo Milli have joined forces for a brand new single titled “Money”. A fun video directed by Roxana is accompanying the tune, which evokes female empowerment and features a catchy hook. Already enjoying wide social media recognition, fans have anticipated the track and spawned a hashtag #FloNasty online prior to its release.

ESSII ft. COI LERAY – BROWN EYES

‘Brown Eyes’ is a sleek, precocious gem, adorned with colourful textures and floor-shaking 808s from British Zambian artist Essii, featuring LA rapper Coi Leray’s dynamic flow. Their chemistry, coupled with the playful visual, gives the track new life as they celebrate finding confidence in their femininity.

SANTINO LE SAINT – AFTERPARTY

 

Having just released his debut album ‘Beautiful Disaster’, Santino Le Saint primarily draws on close collaborators to transmit to you the feeling of the early 20th century through a highly conceptual album. The standout single from the project – titled ‘Afterparty’ – captures the feeling of spinning out of control in a room filled with people, but feeling alone at the same time..

BELLY – FLOWERS

Grammy-nominated rapper, songwriter, and producer Belly returns with a new music video for his single titled ‘Flowers’. Released as a reminder to provide people with praise whilst they are still here to take it, the Candian-born artist had previously performed the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live, shortly after sharing his highly acclaimed ‘See You Next Wednesday’ album.

MORRAY ft. BENNY THE BUTCHER – NEVER FAILS

 

Fayetteville-born singer and rapper Morray re-emerges with his latest single and video ‘Never Fail’ in conjunction with fellow rapper, Benny The Butcher. ‘Never Fails’ follows October’s ‘Mime,’ an all-out hard-hitting tune that has accumulated over 350,000 YouTube views and is featured in Madden NFL 22’s soundtrack. Benny The Butcher effortlessly matches Morray’s energy in the visual, which features eye-catching city views as well as an energetic performance by Morray.
