On Rotation IWD Takeover: Songs you need in your life this week
Every week, the iMullar staff round up ten songs we cannot stop listening to, forming the weekly list of songs known as “On Rotation.” This week we have asked the team and women from the music industry for International Women’s Day to share some of their favourite tunes. You heard these recommendations here first. From South to West Africa, to the UK, each track is guaranteed to be a vibe.
1. Ria Boss – Flame on
If you do not already know about Ria Boss, we suggest you listen to this song immediately. This song is a strong representation of Ria’s versatility and strong vocals. A beautiful piece that speaks to Ria’s inner child about what this thing we call life really all about.

If you’re an Amapiano lover then this one is for you. By Ch’cco, Mellow and Sleazy this song gives everything that it needs to give. Amapiano has taken the music industry by storm, and I promise you this is one that you need to add to your workout playlist. Give it a listen and I guarantee you have already come across this one on socials.

3. Phaemous – I Like H.E.R
Emerging singer-songwriter Phaemous is definitely someone you should keep your eyes on. The artist brings something that arguably nobody else brings. Phaemous’ sound is founded on R&B and ‘I Like H.E.R’ is a strong representation of why the artist should be on your radar.

5. Rosalia ft. The Weeknd – LA FAMA
Spanish singer and songwriter and The Weeknd collaborated on this one, and I cannot lie. It is a vibe. Rosalia’s Spanish influence does not stop with her, but the Weeknd also drops vocals in Spanish, giving us a beautiful melody.

6. Beyonce “Bigger”
A masterpiece. Need I say more? A beautiful track from Beyonce that shares a strong message that everyone can certainly do with from time to time. If you have not taken the lyrics of this one, then I suggest you sit back, close your eyes and listen to ‘Bigger’ by Beyonce.
