Nasty C released Lost Files last month as a "visual EP." Owing to the ongoing lockdown, the South African rapper and producer dug into his archives for unreleased and unfinished songs. The songs were presented in performance clips which were released on YouTube.


Nasty C recently shared the origin of the songs on Lost Files in an interview with OkayAfrica:

"It's a nice little teaser. Some are very old, "Forever" is 4/5 years old. They're songs that didn't make it onto certain projects, songs that ended up as just ideas, that I never really got the time to finish, or I didn't really want to finish, because I didn't feel like it. I have a lot of those in the vault. Sometimes it kind of hurts seeing myself move on and being so sure that I'm never going to put that song out even though I like it. So, we found a way to work around that."

Most of the songs on Lost Files are shorter than two minutes. As a result, they are grouped into two long tracks in the audio version of the EP now available on Apple Music.

With Lost Files, Nasty C is giving his fans something to get pre-occupied with before the release of his long promised third studio album, Zulu Man With Some Power. The album's first single "There They Go" was released last month and accompanied the announcement that Nasty C had signed a deal with Def Jam Recordings.

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.
