Written by Snatch Moore on 10/09/2017
This is not an album review. Just listing some new albums out there that I think you should listen to and probably have in your playlist. I’m not trying to rank them but they are all good in their own way so, in no particular order, these are 8 hot new albums you should listen to.
- D’Banj – King Don Come
I particularly love everything about this album. Firstly, because it’s D’Banj – the great entertainer of our time. Secondly, because D’Banj has been out of the music radar for a while now and he seems to have put a lot into this album, proving once again that he’s on top of the game.
King Don Come is D’Banj’s 4th studio album and consists of 12 tracks. Listen to the album below;
2. Sarkodie – Highest
I think it’s safe to say that Sarkodie is one of the biggest act in Africa. Highest is the artist’s 5th studio album. The Highest album is a collection of incredible Hip-Hop and Afro-Beats comprising 15 brand new songs, 3 interludes and a bonus track, totaling 19 tracks.
Listen to Highest Below;
3. Simi – Simisola
We love Simi. And this album gives so much joy and happiness. Well delivered with her sweet voice. Simisola is one album you should listen to if you love good music.
The album consists of 12 tracks with 3 additional bonus tracks and the only feature on the album is Adekunle Gold.
Listen to Simisola below;
4. Wizkid – Sound From The Other Side
Wizkid is the biggest artist to come out of Africa right now. And his latest EP, as he has called it, has received massive reviews and awards. So, it’s safe to say, #SFTS is the biggest most successful album to come out of Africa this year, even thou the year is not over yet.
Listen to Sound From The Other Side below, should in case you’re yet to listen to it;
5. Flavour – Ijele – The traveler
Why won’t anyone love Flavour? The Flavour Nabania himself. Great vocal, beautiful performances. He’s a full package. You just have to love him. And his new album, Ijele – The traveler is a must-have.
Ijele – The Traveler is Flavour‘s 5th studio album and consists of 17 beautiful songs like ‘Catch You‘, ‘Sake Of Love‘ featuring Sarkodie, ‘Most High‘ featuring Semah G. Weifur, Baby Na Yoka, Virtuous Woman etc.
6. Omawumi – Timeless
Omawumi is a superwoman with a powerful voice. And we are not expecting anything short of this ‘Timeless‘ album. You have to listen to testify.
7. illBliss – iLLY Bomaye
illBliss is a boss. End of story. He’s a legend in his own right. Listen to his latest 5th studio album, iLLY Bomaye.
8. Jesse Jagz – Odysseus
Jesse Jagz presents his 3rd studio album titled ‘Odysseus‘. Critics say it’s the hottest Hip-Hop album this year. You have to listen to agree or not agree to that.
The 10 track album is titled “Odysseus” and it’s fully loaded with punchlines, metaphors, and mind-blowing features.
