Starboys Wizkid and Maleek Berry Drop 'Feel Me'

Download Wizkid and Maleek Berry's new joint single "Feel Me," the latest offering from Starboy Entertainment.


Naija’s pretty boy bossman Wizkid has been on his grind promoting his recently launched imprint StarBoy Entertainment. Last we heard from the Starboy camp, members L.A.X, Wizzy and Legendury Beatz joined forces for the fiery dance-floor hit “Ginger.” Now, the young imprint is out with another offering, this time headed by South London-bred producer Maleek Berry who teamed up with the man-in-charge Wizkid for his ego-trip "Feel Me." The dynamic duo have seen some success in the past with collaborations on hits like Wizkid’s “Lagos To Soweto” and Berry’s viral video sensation “The Matter.” Their latest pairing sees Wizkid layering his poppy vocals over some twisted dancehall-esque beats from Berry. Though the track, which was actually recorded over a year ago, was released under some sketchy circumstances (an un-mastered version was leaked earlier this week pressuring Berry to release a more polished version), “Feel Me” does its job in exciting listeners for the release of the beatmaker’s official single, which he announced on twitter will be out soon. Listen to the track below.

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.
