On Rotation: Songs you need in your life this week

Every week, the iMullar staff round up ten songs we cannot stop listening to, thus forming the weekly list of songs known as “On Rotation.” You heard these recommendations here first. From the UK to Nigeria, each track from this week’s selections is guaranteed to be a vibe.

1. OSÁ – Abena

OSÁ gave me all the vibes I needed with this track! Sexy yet chilled, OSÁ flows like a natural on this beat. It seems that OSÁ has found his sound so I’m looking forward to what else he has in store.

2. Geoxpress – 365 (Grime Riddim)

This is the first song I heard by Geoxpress and became intrigued to dive into his discovery. ‘365 (Grime Riddim)’ is a laid-back track off of his debut project ‘Xpress Riddim’.

3. Jeriq – Cartel Business featuring Kofi Jamar

Jeriq provides the raspy vocals on ‘Cartel Business’ featuring the Ekorso rapper, Kofi Jamar. I love how the traditional Igbo flutes were fused into the beat, complimenting Jeriq’s Igbo bars. You can definitely get sturdy to this joint!

4. Kizz Daniel – Buga (Lo Lo Lo) featuring Tekno

‘Buga’ is a fun, feel-good rhythm that has everyone dancing, and having a good time. And we know Tekno has some unforgettable tracks so this collaboration made sense.

5. Burna Boy – Last Last

Producer Chopstix did his thing with the production on ‘Last Last’. It features a sample from the R&B queen Toni Braxton’s ‘He Wasn’t Man Enough For Me’ hit. The sample choice works very well and Burna lays down a catchy hook.

6. AE – Mistaken

South London music duo, AE, consisting of Ads and Els, released this mellow rap track ‘Mistaken’ in April. AE emulate the “cool, calm, and collected” saying with their relaxed flow, balancing it with fun and playful lyricism.

7. D Jay – Balance It

The first single of the year from D Jay, ‘Balance It’ has been rising up the charts. The sweet afrobeats rhythm inspired by his mother, sees D Jay communicate his feelings for his lady of interest.

8. SamRecks – Love and Attention

After his well-received ‘Don’t Tell No One’, SamRecks released another anticipated track ‘Love and Attention’. SamRecks brings something different to the UK music scene with his distinct mellow sound over hard 808s and tactful wordplay.

9. Kadeem Tyrell – I Want You

‘I Want You’ is dedicated to Kadeem Tyrell’s younger brother’s proposal. It’s soulful and airy, reminding me of something that came straight from the 90s.

10. A.B Crentsil – I Go Pay You Tomorrow

I have been vibing to my highlife playlist this week because we got blessed with a bit of sun. So I have had thee highlife legend, A.B. Crentsil’s ‘I Go Pay You Tomorrow’ on repeat.
