THE CUTS bring to readers music or albums that the writer deem worth listening or having in your playlist. The music is not genre and/or regionally specific. Once it is good, it will be covered here.
JAYSO FT HAIDARA – SAY YOU LOVE ME
If there’s one thing JaySo knows how to do best, it is choosing the perfect beat(s), matching lyrics and flawless delivery to body the rhythm (he is a producer so yeah)
The third single off his upcoming album, Say You Love Me put the soul back in hip hop without a doubt, something Q-Tip would be proud of.
With Haidara (sister to RnB superstar Estelle) lending her soulful vocals to the song, the Skillion honcho talks love, affection and commitment. The magic of Say You Love Me lies in its infectiousness. Definitely it is one to be found on the playlist of music aficionados.
KOJO-CUE ft PAPY KOJO – PAY DAY
Pay Day is adorned with minor piano chords and chiming bells with Kojo- Cue and Pappy Kojo effortlessly floating on this DJ Juls production. Pay Day is the first single off Kojo-Cue’s soon to be released This Earth, My Brother (TEMB) album.
‘The sound of the money counting is music to my ears’ sums up the subject matter of the song. Both Cue and Pappy put their strong foot out hard.
ADOMAA MUSIC- BAAFIRA + ADONAI MASH UP
A feature in the Guardian newspaper is an attestation to the incredible talent of this young singer. I had a feel of her talent on Evolution of Music, where she served a potpourri of various musical phases in Ghana (check Youtube)
In this beautifully delivered rendition (mash up) of two huge tunes in Ghana, Adomaa is proving she is here to compete, stay and leave footprints on the music scene. Without a doubt, Adomaa is the next big star to emerge on the music scene. Success is waiting for her to grab.
E.L- SISTAR ARABA
A tweet (Sister Araba > Shelele) led me in search of this song, thinking it is a new song only to realize it is 5 month old. Sister Araba talks about a cheating girlfriend.
‘Sister Araba get 50 lovers/40 be silly borgas with busy pockets/she do me aza wey she give me nonsense’ her behavior concisely summed up on this Azonto tinged tune.
