Burna Boy Drops Two New Bangers Featuring Wizkid & Wande Coal

Two new Burna Boy songs dropped from his latest album, "Single" featuring Wizkid and "On A Very Good Day" with Wande Coal.


Burna Boy’s sophomore album On a Spaceship just dropped and with it come two new songs featuring fellow Naija heavyweights Wizkid and Wande Coal. On “Single,” Burna Boy and Wizkid team up to deliver a dancehall-tinged banger about their experiences with single girls. “On A Very Good Day” is a slightly grittier cut, which sees Burna and Wande Coal trading verses in Yoruba and Pidgin atop bass-heavy production. Both songs are tailored for the dance floor, and feature Burna’s signature genre-bending sound.

The artist speaks about his distinctive musical style and his role in shaping Nigeria’s current musical climate in an interview with the Fader. “I kind of brought back everything you hear now. I kind of started all this shit, all the dancehall sounds. My genre of music is called Afro-Fusion because I fuse different types of music into a ball. There’s dancehall, there’s R&B, there’s hip-hop, there’s Afrobeats—that’s all that makes Burna Boy, really.”

Check out “Single” and “On a Very Good Day” below. Grab a copy of On a Spaceship, which also features Burna's memorable song “Soke” from earlier this year.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
