Listen to Tiwa Savage's New Single 'One'

The singer rounds out a successful year with an endearing new ballad.

Tiwa Savage has had an eventful 2018, and to round it all out, the singer has dropped her latest single "One" for our listening pleasure.

The track, sung mostly in Yoruba, is a spiritual ballad that sees the singer expressing gratitude for her success and flexing her honeyed vocals atop light, slowed-down production.


Tiwa does have a lot to be thankful for after all, considering she recently became the first woman to win Best African Artist at the MTV Europe Awards and has dropped a number of memorable hits this year, including "Luva Luva" featuring Duncan Mighty and most recently "Shake It" with D'Banj. Also appearing in the much talked about video for Wizkid's "Fever."

She's had a big 2018, and it's great to hear the singer take a moment to bask in all her success. "One," produced by Killertunes is an anthemic jam, and definitely the type of track you'll want to sing along to.

Take a listen below.

Interview

Sarkodie Is Not Feeling Any Pressure

The elite Ghanaian rapper affirms his king status with this seventh studio album, No Pressure.

Sarkodie is one of the most successful African rappers of all time. With over ten years of industry presence under his belt, there's no question about his prowess or skin in the game. Not only is he a pioneer of African hip-hop, he's also the most decorated African rapper, having received over 100 awards from close to 200 nominations over the span of his career.

What else does Sarkodie have to prove? For someone who has reached and stayed at the pinnacle of hip-hop for more than a decade, he's done it all. But despite that, he's still embracing new growth. One can tell just by listening to his latest album, No Pressure, Sarkodie's seventh studio album, and the follow-up to 2019's Black Love which brought us some of the Ghanaian star's best music so far. King Sark may be as big as it gets, but the scope of his music is still evolving.

Sonically, No Pressure is predominantly hip-hop, with the first ten tracks offering different blends of rap topped off with a handful of afrobeats and, finally, being crowned at the end with a gospel hip-hop cut featuring Ghanaian singer MOG. As far as the features go, Sark is known for collaborating mostly with his African peers but this time around he branches out further to feature a number of guests from around the world. Wale, Vic Mensa, and Giggs, the crème de la crème of rap in America and the UK respectively all make appearances, as well as Nigeria's Oxlade, South Africa's Cassper Nyovest, and his fellow Ghanaian artists Darkovibes and Kwesi Arthur.
