Download Temi DollFace's 'Just Like That (Story)'

Temi Dollface returns with the electronic-infused hip-hop jam "Just Like That (Story)."


Nigerian songstress Temi DollFace returns this week with the electronic-infused hip-hop jam "Just Like That (Story)." Temi made an impact in 2013 with the 1950s commercial-themed visuals for her debut single offering "Pata Pata," a lighthearted dance track about breaking up. Since then, the star and her signature style have crossed into the fashion realm covering magazines and performing during MTN Lagos Fashion and Design WeekTemi recently dropped her latest offering "Just Like That (Story)." the first single from the songstress' forthcoming album. She flexes her studio skills in co-producing the track with Jo Pee, cooking up something reminiscent of powerhouse duo of Timberland & Missy Elliot, as well as Destiny's Child. In "Just Like That (Story)," she raps and sings about the allurement and deception of money over their eclectic smorgasbord of snared bass and syncopated beats. Download the single below and, for more, check out our interview with Temi Dollface from last year.

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.
