This one right here is in the spirit of this glorious series that has had you dim the lights and get your freak on… After a little love story, we are back with 22 tracks right for the baby making, inspired by the first track — Tory Lanez’s “F.E.E.L.S.”
Come to think of it, I might not be showing enough love to Camila Cabello in this segment; after all, she has an excellent track record as a pop star. I have been playing “My Oh My” — in fact, the whole of Romance — for a couple months now, and I was champing at...
What are the odds of two singers with the same name popping off at the same time? Thankfully, we can tell them apart: the names are spelled different, they come from different countries and they make different type of music (at least for now). So while the British Anne-Marie is holding her own in the...Continue reading
This year, Fally Ipupa made sure he was a fixture. With new return-to-the-roots album (Control), he glued us to the dancefloor (“ École“) and charmed with undeniable ballads (“Aime-moi“, “Canne à sucre”).

Tanzania’s crooner Harmonize has had a meteoric rise to fame and was quick to step out of the huge shadow of his label mate/boss Diamond Platnumz. His specialty: tear jerkers such as “Atarudi” (she will come back), which has caught our hearts instantly. So, for the second time (only?), he gets the nod to lead...Continue reading
I would like to believe that I made the best of circumstance, took these nice lemons (songs) to make tasty lemonade (playlist), and nailed down the champion vibe. It’s all about attitude here. The songs weave through different mind states from self-assertion and exuberance to resolve and gratitude. This is — I believe — as...Continue reading
“Apeshit” was the first single from The Carters’ (Beyoncé and Jay-Z) inevitable yet much anticipated debut album. However good you might feel about the song, it was overshadowed by its video: shot in the Louvre and replete with artistic mastery and double meanings, it would take a book to unpack all the various messages that...Continue reading
