5 Songs You Should Listen To This Week
About 10 different songs were released during the week and I felt instead of reviewing each song one after the other, while not listen to them all and give you the best 5 songs you should listen to, I know right, that’s much better abi.
First off, let me say Happy New Month and Merry Christmas in advance to you guys, finally December don come and trust me when I say Lagos City Review, has a lot of surprise for you this month, the only question is are you ready?
Anyway, without wasting much time these are the top 5 songs you should listen to this week
Timi Dakolo -I Never Know Say
No homo guys, but I’m in love with Timi Dakolo, how can someone sing a song this sweet, chai, on a personal level this would be my best love song this year. As produced by extraordinary producer Cobhams Asuquo, I Never Know Say is a classic highlife song, done in the original highlife way, like those highlife songs you will hear in the bars in the 80’s and early 90’. Listening to this song I can’t help but to think of the great Osadebe and other great highlife musicians of the past, this is highlife at its purest level, without any doubt the rating of this song will be 5/5.
Olamide –Poverty Die
What more can I say about Olamide, you just don’t know what he will do next, you can’t predict the kind of sounds he will drop next but one thing I have come to expect is that during this time of the year Olamide will definitely have that song that will rock the whole industry. Poverty Die is a spiritual song, produced by Pheelz and it is a song that has gone viral already, the song took over the street the moment it dropped and trust me when I say it will be had to hear any single that will do better than this song this December period and even doing into the new year.
The rating of this song will be 4/5.
I have to be honest, after listening to the first 10 seconds of this song, I had to take a second look at the song again just to be sure I was listening to the right song; this is a total different Jaywon. It’s like Jaywon purposely keeps his best songs till the end of the end, Aje is a beautiful classic song, the piano inspired song has a very distinctive motivational message to everyone out there, looking for a song that will keep you going into the New Year I recommend this song to you. The rating of this song without a doubt will be 5/5 by the way Kenny Ogunbe added his vocals to the song.
9ice has proven over time that he’s that artiste that always delivers when the need arises and he has done that with a lot of singles this year but the Ancestor artiste isn’t done yet as he returns with this beautifully compose love song titled Keys as produced by Olumix. 9ice has released a handful of singles this year but if I’m to pick the best I would pick this, the way this song started alone was captivating and yes Olumix outdid himself once again on the production of this song and 9ice once again proves to us, he is still capable of making hit songs.
The rating of this song will be 4/5.
Vector ft. Daddy Showkey x DJ Magnum -Be Happy
V E C is back with another hit, titled Be Happy and on this reggae tune features veteran artiste Daddy Showkey and DJ Magnum. Vector takes us back to that his Follow Me Dey Go (ft.2face) sound which drove us crazy then but the highlight of this song for me is how Daddy Showkey was able to blend in perfectly. Showkey shows us why he is referred to as the king of dancehall and reggae music in Nigeria, I mean baba killed it mehn.
The rating of this song will be 8/10.
