News Brief

P-Square Share the Music Video for Their New Love Anthem "Away"

Nigerian duo, P-Sqaure, share the music video for their latest single "Away."

Naija twins P-Square are back with their first jam of 2017, and it comes just in time for Valentine's Day.


The group share the video for "Away," a pulsating love anthem, replete with sentimental lyrics and booming production. If you're still not ready for tomorrow's "festivities," give this song a listen.

The video follows the twins as they serenade their love interests in an empty, but lavish club. Traditional dancers and expensive sports cars are also in tow.

 

"Away" follows last year's massive comeback jam "Bank Alert." P-Square haven't dropped and album since  2014's Double Trouble, but we're hoping that this release is a sign of more to come from Nigeria's biggest pop duo.

Watch their latest below and grab the song on iTunes.

This Compilation Shines a Light On East African Underground Music

We talk to a few of the artists featured on the Music For the Eagles compilation from Uganda's Nyege Nyege.

Nyege Nyege, a label in Kampala, Uganda is channelling the confidence brimming over a whole continent. Africa is no longer the future. For dance music, its time is right now.

Music For the Eagles is a compilation released in conjunction with Soundcloud to showcase the best new acts that East Africa has to offer outside the mainstream. A new wave of artists firmly blasting non-conformist energy for you to spasm to. Music that takes you places. Otim Alpha's high BPM wedding frenzy of incessant rasping vocals accompanied by feverous violin will have you clawing the walls to oblivion. Anti Vairas' dancehall from a battleship with super galactic intentions doesn't even break a sweat as it ruins you. FLO's beautiful sirens call, is a skittish and detuned nursery rhyme that hints at a yearning for love but reveals something far more unnerving. Ecko Bazz's tough spiralling vocal over sub-bass and devil trap energy is an anthem that can only be bewailed. And Kidane Fighter's tune is more trance-like prayer. These are only some of the highlights for you to shake it out to.

We got to chat with a few of the artists featured on the Music For the Eagles compilation as they took a break from the studio below.
