The search for the song of the summer is ongoing. Four months after the year started, the music industry is yet to produce a worldwide hit single – we have the exploits Ayra Starr’s ‘Commas’ is doing on the worldwide charts – However, by this time last year, Davido had released ‘Timeless’ with hit singles like Kante, Feel, and Unavailable. Odumodublvck’s ‘Declan Rice’ was making waves in the football sphere, BNXN’s ‘Gwagwalada’ was the song on the streets, and Asake’s ‘2:30’ was the party banger.

During her interview, Ayra disclosed that her album is “very evolved. It’s just me talking about the journey of being a 21-year-old and how 21 is just a state of mind. I want everybody that listens to it no matter your age to feel 21.”

Release Date: TBA

In the past few months, Fireboy’s interviews have contributed to the outrage music lovers and critics have felt over genre specification. His forthcoming album, which he disclosed would drop later in the year, is his opportunity to explain to his audience what his ‘Afro-Life’ genre is about.

The album will be his fourth studio album, after his last album, Playboy, which generated mixed reactions. It’s his chance to show that he’s still capable of creating a cohesive and lyrically loaded album. Although the music star has hinted at starting his album rollout, he has yet to share when the album will be released.

Wizkid

Wizkid Morayo

Release Date: TBA

Four months after the release of his EP, Soundman 2, the multi-award winning artist announced that his sixth studio album is in the works and it will be titled ‘Morayo.’ The album does not only allow us to get a glimpse of Wizkid’s sound evolution, but it’s also an album he said is dedicated to his late mum, Jane Dolapo Balogun, who passed away in August 2023.

With teased collaborations with artistes like Shallipopi and Justin Bieber, Wizkid promises that the album is a departure from his familiar sound. However, he is yet to unveil the album’s release date.

Ajebo Hustlers

Ajebo Hustlers Bad Boy Etiquette 102 Album

Release Date: May 3

After releasing what most consider ‘the best tracklist’ announcement in recent memory, the anticipation for the Ajebo Hustlers album has increased. The duo is set to feature Blaqbonez, Odumodublvck, Raebel, Zlatan, Jeriq, Magixx, Sarkodie and King Promise on the second instalment of their Bad Boy Etiquette project.

The duo with rapper Knowledge and singer Piego released Bad Boy Etiquette 101 in December 2022, and over a year later, they’ll be releasing Bad Boy Etiquette 102: Continuous Assessment. In the usual Ajebo Hustlers style, a brilliant blend of their southern heritage with modern genres is expected.
