NEW MUSIC THIS WEEK: Rosa Ree, Timmy Dat, Taylor Swift, Mya and Jay Sean
Rosa Ree feat Timmy Dat – Asante Baba Remix
Borderline a lot of things – when I first saw the title, I was like, have these rappers gone gospel? Then I listened to the chorus, and watched the video, and it was crystal clear they were looking to push the envelope with this one. It sounds good, production wise, but it’s borderline…
Mr. P feat Niniola – One More Night
Mr. P channels Michael Jackson so well in this new music video, that expertly blends an afro-beat with RnB vibes. It also helps that Niniola lends her distinctive alto and lingo to the single.
Khaligraph Jones – Superman
Khaligraph is that guy who sounds so fresh, it’s almost criminal. Oyole Express is killing it with his new visuals to ‘Superman’, boldly saying that it’s Africa taking over. Super love for this super track!

Russ feat Davido – All I Want
It’s been a minute since we heard him, but Davido is perfunctorily back on this Russ single ‘All I Want’, and I’m massively impressed. If this isn’t a top 2 banger, I don’t know what is…

THE REST OF THE WORLD
Lil Dicky – Earth
It wasn’t just the fame of ‘Freaky Friday’ which featured Chris Brown. Lil Dicky is onto something, and he’s onto something BIG! Check out his new riveting and powerful video ‘Earth’, and then tell me he’s not an (oddly) musical genius. Oh, and it features a star studded cast…
Mya – Down
2000s star Mya is back and she’s Down to cause some subtle trouble. Her latest musical offering is as breezy as the coastal setting it’s in. Nevermind the superb choreo and the captivating costumes – it’s her suave vocals that uplift this single.
Taylor Swift feat Brendon Urie of Panic at the Disco! – ME!
The old Taylor is back, and she looks pretty new! It’s great to hear one of our generation’s biggest pop icons go back to the sounds and appearances that made us love her so. The single ‘ME!’ borrowed the feel good energy of the lead of Panic at the Disco! to bring us this complex yet stunning music video.
Madonna feat Maluma – Medellin
It’s interesting to see one of the most controversial artists there ever was, Madonna, start off her latest single ‘Medellin’, with an ernest prayer, before jumping right back into a free-spirit medley we associate her with. It’s a beautiful video, and the measured pace has something hypnotic about it.
