This week on our countdown, we will be sampling both new and old songs that are trending.
1. BLOW MY MIND – Davido X Chris Brown
The song retained its number spot here at number 1 as Davido is gearing up to become number one as he keeps recording wins everyday.
Davido recently got to perform at the premiere of one of the most successful Hollywood TV Series, “Power” and it made him more popular around the world. His continued association with international stars has projected him on another level and the views on YouTube for this song, in particular, proves how much his fans appreciate him.
Congratulations Davido because you literally and lyrically “Blow Our Minds Away”.
2. BETTER (HOPE FOR AFRICA) – Tekno
Can we al agree that Tekno is back like he never left? This is his third single that he has dropped since his return from his Long break from the music scene. The title says it all as the song aims to give hope to people who have lost trust and faith in Africa. This is a follow-up to his hit song, Agege ft Zlatan Ibile which is still buzzing.
3. BEGINNING – Joeboy
The Banku Music fast-rising artiste isn’t slowing down. His hit song Baby was on the countdown last week and as a follow-up, he dropped this jam of goodness and it is one of the most talked-about songs of the moment.
Produced by the beat machine, Killertunez.
4. SOAPY -Naira Marley
The refusal of this song to leave the charts despite a lot of criticism as led to an increase in views of the music video on YouTube.
Soapy is a song that many have referred to as promoting “Masturbation” due to its choreographed soapy dance. Naira Marley has continued to confirm that he got the inspiration in prison when he was locked up.
A lot of people are clearly loving the song while we await a new project from him. We will like to see if it will knock off “Soapy” from the charts or not.
5. GELATO – DJ Cuppy X Zlatan Ibile
What started as a joke has become a hit song…amazing!
DJ Cuppy against all odds has been doing music for a while now but might retire from it soon and take DJing to another level.
Just before that will happen, she dropped Gelato and it has become the rave of the moment and one of the most played songs on radio. While we await the music video to this song, we can’t forget how one fun video of DJ Cuppy and her dad Femi Otedola casually stopping by in Europe for ice cream aka Gelato is the reason we have this new jam.
The song features the talented Zlatan Ibile.
6. KING – Fireboy DML
YBNL is having a good year for its artistes starting from the boss, Olamide to its protege Fireboy.
Fireboy never disappoints when it comes to confessing/professing love for a lady through his music but this is a reverse as he is on this track letting the lady in question know that he is king.
The song is buzzing not because he is a Ybnl signee but because the lyrics were carefully selected and put together.
7. TRUE – Mayorkun X Kizz Daniel
Mayor Of Lagos living up to the true existence of his nickname as the song “True” stands firm on the countdown.
The collaboration of both singers was well thought out and It features the men asking the ladies to stay true. The blend of both Kizz Daniel’s and Mayorkun’s voices was all the song needed to speak for itself.
8. POWER RANGERS – Teni
Teni is gearing up to quench our taste for a new song but Power Rangers is that song that has a long staying power. This shows the world that the chance that Dr Dolor Entertainment took on Teni as an artiste when others wouldn’t, did not go in vain as Teni has solidified herself in “The Hitmaker’s” hall of fame.
It is uncertain if it is the Indian vibe on the song or the sonorous voice of the singer that has made the song remain on the charts but what is clear is the great work put together to ensure the success of the song.
9. ELLO BABY – Young John X Tiwa Savage X Kizz Daniel
A collaboration that features some of the best in the industry usually ensures that a song won’t just fade away like that. An example of this is “Ello Baby”.
“ Young John the Wicked Producer” produced one of his best songs when he collaborated with Tiwa and Kizz Daniel.
10. DOYIN – Mr Eazi X Simi
After their collaboration in “I Surrender” last year, this duo decided it was time to create another party favourite and they delivered on this monster hit track. Simi and Mr Eazi gave us Doyin and we can’t get enough of it.
The track is Produced by Killertunez.
Side Note – Iron man by Nigerian Artiste from Mavin Records, Rema is listed among the former U.S. President, Barack Obama’s summer playlist! Talk about Nigeria to the world!!! Congratulations Rema! It is such a big deal to be recognized internationally at such an early stage in his career and we are proud of him.
