One more for the ShenYeng clan! Since “Blessed” took off last year, Shenseea has been in high demand. And you won’t hear any complaints from me when the trickle we’ve been accustomed to turns into a steady stream of Shenseea bangers like “Trick’a Treat”.

There’s a lot of great stuff (articles, features, playlists, etc.) in the works and a brother wouldn’t want to be lost in the shuffle....Continue reading
By this time, you would have noticed that we are particularly fond of good times and parties. And I’m pretty sure we will never run out of good ass party songs. And there’s quite a few here. “We De Vibe”, from Ghana’s star duo R2Bees, leads the pack. But there are numerous nuggets here from...Continue reading
