Despite dropping the much anticipated visuals for Ginger, the banger featuring Burna Boy, Wizkid sees it drop to No. 3, getting overthrown by Essence. Whichever way it comes, it is still a massive W for Ayodeji Balogun aka Wizkid as he comfortably occupies the No. 2 and 3 spot on the UK Afrobeats Chart Top 20 in consecutive weeks.

Other Nigerian acts on the Top 10 are — Olamide with two consecutive singles – Loading (No. 5) and Infinity (No. 6) while Davido takes the tenth spot with Jowo.

Right from the intro, prettyboydo shows he is not ready to bend or bow to any opposition, he says: “My mama wake up every morning, pray to God say: ‘protect my only son’. Me say: ‘ mama don’t pray for me, pray for them’”.

Living in Bondage is prettyboydo’s way of saying no matter what his thrown his way in form of opposition and persecution, he will never wave the white flag.

Mom I’m at war / Say a prayer cause I’m in war” he reveals on the first track before complementing it on the chorus with the statement, “Bondage Bondage / Say me living in bondage / Here tomorrow’s not promised / ‘Cause me living in bondage”.

Rema does the asmr flow on new single “Soundgasm”

Published

on

One thing Rema is not scared of doing is experimenting with sounds and that he did to the full effect on latest song—Soundgasm—produced by frequent producer collaborator, London.

The guitar strings introduces listeners to the pleasing “Do-oh, do-oh, do-oh, do-oh, do-oh, do-oh, do-oh, do-oh, ah-ah” sung by Rema on the chorus of the song, just in time for the Afrobeat sample to kick in.

If Rema’s aim was to actually secret body fluids before making listeners ears shake like they were being vibrated, then he accomplished that in flying colours as he lays beautiful verses by using different sexual innuendos to connote different sex foreplay and positions; on the second verse he boasts of his ability to please and outperform any girl’s sexual expectations of him, “Shorty got a lot in her bucket list / I give her number one, she need a bucket quick / And when we done, she feel me like a majesty”.

One thing I like about Rema’s sound is his continual experimentation of sound and that again was explored on the bridge of Soundgasm, he goes full-on asmr whispering: “Baby girl your body is my medicine
Sweet baby melanin sweeter than sugarcane / If I hickey, hickey on her neck / Sex like a gangster, one my face, innocent” before going fully uncensored on the next few lines.

From the strings to the conspicuous baseline to the intermediary Afrobeat sample, London worked his magic on the production for Soundgasm. An excellent job from both of them, Rema and London.

Listen to Soundgasm. The music video for Rema’s latest banger currently premieres on Apple Music. It should be up for streaming on YouTube and other platforms anytime from 12 PM WAT today.
