Listen to Olamide's New Song 'Loose It' Featuring Eskeez

Baddo is back.

Olamide returns after the recent release of his acclaimed album, UY Scuti, with a brand new single in the form of "Loose It."

The new track sees the Nigerian heavyweight act linking up with producer and featured artist Eskeez, the man behind the boards on UY Scuti's standout single "Rock," one of our Best Nigerian Songs of 2021 So Far.

"Loose It" is another mellow and flirtatious number like "Rock," built on a dembow-indebted drum pattern and some sugary synth melody lines.

Tems is striking while the iron's hot and sharing her new 5-song EP, If Orange Was A Place.

The new release comes a few days after she dropped its lead single, "Crazy Tings," an addictive and bounce-heavy track produced by Ghanaian beatmaker GuiltyBeatz.

If Orange Was A Place also features a single guest appearance from American singer Brent Faiyaz — who lends his vocals to "Found" — and production from Jonah Christian. It was mixed and mastered by Spax.

The new EP comes alongside the news that Tems has signed to Since '93/RCA Records and been announced as Apple Music's latest Up Next artist.

Tems has been a highly-buzzing name in the last month with her feature on Drake's Certified Lover Boy, in which she appears on the song "Fountains," and for the massive popularity of her single alongside Wizkid, "Essence," which recently got a Justin Bieber remix.
