On this week’s Essentials, we’ve got good vibes, sensual music for intimate moments and a message in a bottle for looters and villains. Let’s go!
My Intentions – Funbi
The soulful Spax-produced ‘My Intentions’ is infused with intoxicating Afrofunk melodies and introspective, lyrical subject alluding to Funbi’s cheeky and corny intent for a muse he showers with promises.
Rotn – Popsnotthefather ft Southside Mohammed
‘Rotn’ is a sensual, slow-tempo tune made especially for sex playlists. You will thank us later!
Confession – AV
This Big Thug Boy is truly fearless because he unashamedly confesses his love for his muse on this groovy guitar-led track. Be like AV, drop all that hard guy energy and tell that person you love them.
Ogogoro Bop – Abstraktt ft Bella Shmurda
Palmwine music at its finest. ‘Ogogoro Bop’ is a lilting feel-good record on which both artists flex their vocal and lyrical dexterity, delivering catchy lines about their exuberant lifestyles filled with good vibes, alcohol and women.
Lady – Austin Boss
“Give them the vibe if you get am now!”…This one is for the one-man ladies who like to dance with their lovers all night long. Such a smooth track!
Ozumba Mbadiwe – Reekado Banks
We absolutely love this one and we forgive Reekado Banks for joining the Amapiano train late. By the way, if you’ve been looking for him? Catch him on Ozumba Mbadiwe.
Message In A Hammer – Obongjayar
His gritty, metallic voice texture draws us to him and his experimental sound seals the chokehold Onbongjayar has on us over here at RADR. The track is built on distorted drums and synth paired with Obongjayar’s call for a fight against oppressors, stealers and ruthless villains.
