On Rotation: Songs You Need in Your Life This Week

The latest updates to the iMullar On Rotation playlist, ten songs the team are currently obsessed with from African artists and the diaspora.

  1. The Cavemen – Selense 

The latest track from the Nigerian highlife duo, with their signature modern twist on the traditional 50s/60s sound. Then on instrumentation, we’ve got skittering percussion and gentle guitar riffs serving as the perfect backdrop to the serene spiritual vibe created. 

  1. Juls featuring Tay Iwar and Projexx – Chance

Juls and Tay Iwar are a fire combination. Add in Projexx and his fiery patios lyrics and ‘Chance’ is just the right soundtrack to making intense eye contact with your deepest desire.

  1. April Maey – Sweatshirt 

A feel good simply-crafted song. April spreads the best vibes about feeling good in your own skin and maintaining one’s good energy.

  1.  Ayo Jay – Dance For Me

The British-Nigerian singer dropped an EP earlier this year, overflowing with melodic tunes, ‘Dance For Me’ serving as the intro. It harnesses the elements of Afrobeats with a flute accompaniment that dances throughout the song with Ayo’s light vocals.

  1. Ragz Originale featuring Knucks and Lady Donli – No Doubt 

On a signature Ragz Originale produced beat, the three creatives come together to deliver a blend of futuristic rap and R&B, all with an alte edge, over the bouncy production. In addition to providing vocals and the beat, Ragz also directs the cinematic, playful music video visuals. Multi-talented, he just does not miss.

  1. Blaqbonez – Don’t Touch

Something sensual and sweet to remind you that we all have that one person we’d go to war for. Blaqbonez on this slow ballad with notes of dancehall riddim creates a hit track worth multiple replays. 

  1. TayC – Dis Moi Comment

The gentle vocals of TayC dance over the afrobeat percussion baseline. We hear lyrics about love that we would typically expect from an R&B song, the French making it sound that bit sweeter. The young French-Cameroonian musician never fails to provide the vibe and this is a song to be played over and over and on the maximum volume your speakers will allow.

  1. Sean Tizzle – Know Person

The latest release since his return to the music scene, the Nigerian Afrobeat singer and songwriter comes correct on this song. With clear amapiano influence on this production, accompanied with Sean Tizzle’s exceptional vocals, it is impossible not to vibe with these infectious rhythms. 

  1. BOJ featuring Amaarae and Zamir – Money & Laughter

The follow-up to his last album, we have BOJ’s smooth, seductive tones accompanied by Amaarae’s signature angelic vocals and Zamir’s laidback quick-witted raps all over a beat concocted from addictive afropop and gentle R&B. The music video shot in Ghana and directed by Prince Dovlo provides the perfect visual accompaniment.

  1. Unknown T – Bible Love

Unknown T comes through with yet another banger ‘Bible Love’ from his latest mixtape Adolescence. The track ‘Bible Love’ shows a softer side to the drill artist. With soft melodies over the use of string instruments, it brings a different vibe to the mixtape.
