MzVee – Baby
Newly outdoored “Baby” marks MzVee’s fourth consecutive single release post-comeback. Produced by Kizzy Beat, “Baby” is an enchanting love song that sees the songbird’s melodic vocals float seamlessly over a string-heavy afro-influenced production.

The 9-track EP spots guest appearances from contemporaries Amerado, Lyrical Joe, Novo, Kojo Vyper, Kwe, and Kirani Ayat. Our pick off the project is the grind inspiration anthem “Daawa” featuring Afro-trapper Kirani Ayat.
Ms. Forson ft Fameye -Number 1
Black Avenue Muzik signed diva Ms Forson collaborates with arguably the most sought-after act of the moment Fameye on a sentimental number titled “Number 1”. The upbeat afro-pop love duet was produced by Rony Turn Me Up, with visuals directed by Kwame Nyarko.
Rvdical The Kid ft Amaarae – NASA
NASA is the second track off Rvdical The Kid’s newly released EP aptly titled “Little Planet”. The self-produced track can be described as light-hearted and hypnotic, spotting a spacy and ethereal production over which Amaarae effortlessly floats whilst delivering potent bars. If you are a lover of alternative sounds, ” NASA” is definitely for you!
Herman Suede – One By One
Notorious for penning love bops, “One By One” is ironically the 17-year-old’s first love-themed song released this year. Herman Suede’s dulcet voice and infectious melodies, coupled with S.Kool Beatz’s production prowess, make the upbeat afro-infused jam an irresistible earworm!
Samini – Forever
With the dancehall scene reclaiming its relevance over the past few weeks, reggae-dancehall titan Samini spearheads a lyrical ambush with the newly released “Forever”. Produced by long-time associate JMJ, “Forever” sees Samini take pride in his longevity at the echelons of Ghana’s cut-throat dancehall scene (spanning multiple decades), declaring his reign is forever!
Tulenkey – Link Up
Gifted fast-rising rapper Tulenkey drops a solid party anthem in “Link Up” produced by M.O.G Beatz. “Link Up” serves as a follow-up to his previously released “Ghetto Boy” which features afrobeats crooner Kelvyn Boy and rapper Medikal and is still buzzing. Hopefully newly released “Link Up” will follow suit.
Sista Afia ft Fameye – Party
Sista Afia takes us back in time with her 90s-inspired contemporary highlife jam. As the title suggests, Sista Afia’s release is a party anthem. Produced by Willis Beats, and featuring prolific act Fameye, the nostalgic record carries the vintage sounds of the 90s “burger highlife” music.

Asem – Magician
