The month of March has been dull, with cloudy days and rainy nights. However, for anyone looking to lift their mood, these 3 tracks listed below could transport you to another time.
1.Migos Feat. Drake – Walk It Talk It
The Migos always deliver, and this 70s themes video keeps them winning. With a special feature from Toronto native Drake, the track encourages listeners to stay true to their word. The visuals are straight out of a 1970s game show, reminiscent of Wheel of Fortune and the popular culture phenomenon the Soul Train. The track is the third release following “Motorsport” and “Stirfry” from their latest album Culture II.
2.Yemi Alade- Bum Bum
Yemi Eberechi Alade, simply known as Yemi Alade released a new track titled “Bum Bum.” The track that is a break from Yemi’s classic sound laid on a Naija beat, takes inspiration from ragga and dancehall genres. The styling of the video is a mashup of classic 1960s where big afros and bold patterns featuring heavily, in contrast to the fishnet stockings and short shorts associated with dancehall.
The upbeat track has all the right elements of a club banger.
3.Big K.R.I.T feat. Lloyd- 1999
It’s a throwback tune, from Mississipi- born Big K.R.I.T. The collaboration track features RnB singer Lloyd, who had previously taken a long hiatus from the limelight after facing several personal challenges in his family life. The track “1999” not only echoes the times of the 90s in the styling of the video but also the production of the sound is reminiscent of the times before the turn of the century. The use of reverb, smooth vocals provided by “Southside” crooner Lloyd, in addition to the heavy beat is a true ode to the late 1990s sound.
