We fell in love with this song (and the original) when we were in Lagos over Christmas. Skales and Burna Boy really embracing the Nigerian pop sound on this one. Looking forward to hearing what 2017 has in store for both of them.

Automatic post when it’s Burna doing dancehall. More importantly filmed in Port Harcourt, where he and Hootie Who are from. Between this and duppying all those AKA features, Burna is back on track in our opinion.
Since Burna Boy stopped working with Leriq we feel it has taken him a while to redefine his sound. Soke is the first of his new tracks that has grabbed us, it shows Burna’s new direction but also has hints of his early work.
Leriq is the producer behind some of Burna Boy’s biggest hits (Yawa Dey, Abeg Abeg Abeg) and since they parted ways we fell that Burna Boy’s tunes just haven’t been the same. It’s nice to hear Leriq working with another HDD favourite Wizkid for Say You love Me which will feature on Leriq’s album “The Lost Sounds” which is set for release in the near future. Congrats to leriq on signing with Sony Music Entertainment Africa recently too. Out to Samrai for putting us on to this one.
