Watch Lady Moon & The Eclipse's New Video For 'Global Warning'

Just in time for Earth Day.

Brooklyn-based outfit Lady Moon & The Eclipse, who we've previously covered for their blend of R&B; and afrobeat, are back with the new single, "Global Warning."

The song and music video, which we're premiering today for Earth Day, is a head-nodder anchored by a heavy funk bass line and led by vocalist Lady Moon's (Ngonda Badila) lyrics about our drastically changing environment.

The new video for "Global Warning," directed by James Kwan, is a shape-shifting affair that cycles through colorful animated drawings and collage-like scenes of Lady Moon dancing in front of different habitats.

Listen to Olamide's New Song 'Spirit'

A new low-tempo groove from the Nigerian heavyweight.

Nigerian star Olamide comes through with his latest single, "Spirit."

The new track sees the rapper switching gears, this time offering up a more low-tempo groove than we're used to hearing from his singles.

In "Spirit," he links up with frequent collaborator and producer Pheelz over a relaxed afro-fusion beat as he sings, "I have refused to downgrade from god to human, spirit is high." The song is a noted change from Olamide's usual style, showing that the YBNL chief has quite the versatility in his arsenal and can deliver over a more afro-pop leaning tune.

"Spirit" follows noteworthy recent drops from the Nigerian heavyweight like the Killertunes-produced banger "Woske" and "Poverty Die."

The new single also comes paired with a dance video that follows several dancers as they do their own interpretation of the beat in a room filled with sage and changing lights.
