Buraka Som Sistema Go 'Stoopid' In New Video + Riot's Free EP 'Zouk Weapons Vol. 1'

Zouk bass masters Buraka Som Sistema are splashing back onto the scene in a big way with new track 'Stoopid' accompanied by a wild video


Zouk bass and kuduro masters Buraka Som Sistema splash back onto the scene in a big way with "Stoopid," the first single from their as-of-yet untitled album. The track arrives with a vibrant technicolor video that finds the crew going wild and breaking all the rules. The colorful visuals were helmed by Portuguese street artist Vhils with assistance from frequent Buraka collaborator João Pedro Moreira — Moreira directed Buraka's Off The Beaten Track documentary as well the videos as for "Hangover" and "Sound of Kuduro." Buraka producer Riot adds to the tumult with the recently released  free two-track EP Zouk Weapons Vol. 1  ahead of his forthcoming solo effort on Enchufada. This double whammy from the Buraka camp is the perfect treat to tide bassheads over until the release of Buraka's new album on June 9th. Check out the video for 'Stoopid', then download or stream Zouk Weapons Vol. 1 EP below.

Tems Is Just Doing Her Thang In New Music Video 'Crazy Tings'

The Nigerian songstress is hell bent on taking over your summer playlist and it's getting harder to resist.

It has been a fantastic year for Tems. The Nigerian singer, producer, and songwriter achieved a platinum record for eternal banger Essence, her collaboration with fellow Nigerian superstar Wizkid, an MTV EMA nomination for Best African Artist, a billion worldwide video views, and over 350 million audio streams. Not to mention featuring on Canadian rapper Drake's blowout album Certified Lover Boy, the singer has also sold out every show she's booked.

The release of Tems's sophomore EP If Orange Was a Place solidified her place amongst the greats and it was received with gusto by fans and international audiences. A month after the release the Afrobeats singer has graced fans with a sultry music video to go along with equally as tantalizing lead single Crazy Tings. Conceptualized by the multitalented Tems, and directed by UAX, the music video follows a sensual Tems as she sings about needing space from a lying partner.

International audiences continue to rave over the songstress, with Tems delivering an impressive US TV debut on late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! this month. Essence continues to top international charts. While becoming the official song of the summer, the track peaked on the Billboard 100 Top 10, becoming the most Shazamed song in the United States and was remixed by Canadian musical heavyweight Justin Bieber, becoming the first song written by Nigerian artists to hit No.1 on Urban Radio.

Tems has been producing consistent hits since her debut in September 2020, and a year later, the singer's immense talent is securing her reputation as a world-class superstar.
