Watch Sola's Striking New Video For 'Save Yourself'

We premiere the new visual from the British-Nigerian artist.

Sola is an exciting new act coming out of the London scene.

The British-Nigerian artist makes music that she calls 'warped soul'—a blend of her deep vocals with experimental electronic production and influences from afrofuturism and her Nigerian heritage.

Sola mentions Nina Simone and Sade as her main vocal influences and credits the likes of Burial, Arca and Massive Attack as inspirations behind her dark and lush beats.

Today we're premiering the new Savannah Setten-directed music video for her single, "Save Yourself," which takes viewers through a black-and-white battle with ones inner demons, eventually coming out on the other side in renewed color.

Watch D'Banj and Tiwa Savage's New Video For 'Shake It'

A brand new single from the Nigerian stars.

D'Banj comes through with "Shake It," the new single he's been teasing across his socials (along with a yet to be released Cassper Nyovest collaboration, "Something Something").

The new Spellz-produced new track sees him connecting with Tiwa Savage for a highly-energetic jam that'll surely be lighting up dance floors all weekend.

Tiwa Savage has had a good week, as she just became the first woman to win 'Best African Act' at the MTV Europe Awards. She, of course, also recently starred in the much-talked about Wizkid video for "Fever."
