No further detail is known regarding the rollout of High Tension 2.0 as to whether it will also be an EP or go all out to feature as a Long Play (LP) or album. Bella Shmurda announced in form of a written poetry:

There are people who are born to shine. Stars, you cannot dim their light.
No matter what happens, no matter what life throws at them
They stand tall, they chase the bag.
They continue to break stereotypes, they break standards.
Successful people equal High Tension.
As lightening is forever due to strike, they will do whatever it takes for them to shine.

The first version to “High Tension” released last year churned out hits including “Vision 2020” (featuring Olamide), “Sho Mo Mi”, “Liqour” among others while Bella Shmurda’s been having an eventful 2020 with the release of “Rush” and “World”.

Published

on

With quite a number of commendable EPs to her name, Bella Alubo decides it is finally time for her to release her grand LP—Bella Buffet—served on a large dining table with a host of options to devour from its ‘Appetizers’ (tracks 1-3), ‘Soups’ (tracks 4-6), ‘Specials’ (7-10), ‘Salad’ (11-14) and finally the ‘Desserts’ (song 15-17).

With her debut LP, Bella “Bentley” Alubo tries stepping out of her comfort zone and experiments with numerous genres of music and speaks on quite a few subject matter, complimentary of her debut album’s title. Allow me list some out:

• Metaphorically euphemised comical reaggae dancehall jam wherein she boldly declares her love for “Plantain”.
• Hiphop cheesy girl-anthem “YBM” Sxdan and veteran rapper, Ice Prince
• Afro-house godmother Niniola hops on South African amapiano themed “Location”.
• East african makossa “Little Bum Bum” piques listeners interest in dancing, providing the right ambiance for it.
• Traditional jamaican reggae production captions the blunt honesty on “White Lies”.
• Afro R&B “Green Eyed Monster” with Keziah Mallam.
• Classic R&B on “Options”.
• Highlife “Know You” with Dremo who experiments with emo rap.
• Electronic Syn X produced pop rhythm—”Only You”.
• In contrast to the regret filled “Table for Two”, Bella mood lights up while singing about her ex on “Reputation”.
• Moody “New Rage”.
• Shares her mama advice about love being two-sided on ode to motherly love with “Mama Said”.

Syn X, Quebeat, Lordknowz and Tuan Malik helped in cooking the beat on the tasty menu for Bella Buffet; Alubo is accredited as the primary songwriter alongside the featured artistes including Zoro, Blaqbonez, Dapo Tuburna etc.

Ycee returns with new single, “Aunty Lovina” featuring Patoranking

Published

on

Ain’t Nobody Badder Than (ANBT) rapper, Ycee is back from a short hiatus from the music scene, jumping on the trendy Amapiano sound on Aunty Lovina featuring Patoranking.

Aunty Lovina should go on to become a club banger as the upbeat drumbeat and Amapiano infused production will surely have listeners bumping their head to Patoranking’s catchy “Bring dat body na / Make I rocky na / Aunty Lovina / If you give me na / I go shoot in na / Like a Benzema” hook before Ycee’s braggadocious first verse where he states he has got real estates, the Midas touch, the meanest flow and him being distinct from everyone else amongst others.

On his second verse though, Ycee leaves bragging for what it is worth, focusing on swaying Aunty Lovina to become his lover, he raps: “Ah Aunty Lovina/ Come make we chill, make we chop dinner / Me I wan sip from your Maltina / Understand me I no be buttey na / Make I shoot my shot make I bussina”, although not forcefully, ending with the closing remark: “And if e be no e be no / E be yes e be yes” but like the playboy he is, Ycee has no time for whining, “Then it’s on to the next flex“, he says gracefully.

You should listen to the track:

Temilade “Tems” Openiyi puts out her second EP—If Orange Was A Place—filled with 5 songs and just one feature, the second song, “Found” with Brent Faiyaz while Guilty Beatz, produces all tracks except the third, where Jonah Christian brings his expertise on.

On If Was A Place, Tems continues her distinctive ride of the R&B/Soul wave using her outstanding voice as the surf board (as it were), speaking on experiences she has had to go through, expressing her opinions on matters bothering her with a constant theme of wanting to stay out of trouble and finding peace, “Crazy Things”, “Avoid Things” and “Vibe Out” are emblematic representatives of these thoughts and opinions of Tems’ mind state on her sophomore EP.

All tracks are written by Tems, with the assistance of Brent Faiyaz on the song he was featured on; Spax sound engineers the project by mixing and mastering the 5 tracks. It appears majority of the EP was recorded in Ghana when Tems went visiting but track 2 was recorded in Los Angeles, USA.
