Yemi Alade – Issokay

This reminds me a little of the Afro-Trap sound that MHD has been pushing over in France, in fact the whole track feels like it has something of a French twist. The track was produced by EdgarBoi who also provided How I Feel and Elele for Yemi this year. This is by far my favourite however, in fact just for the fact I’ve had it on repeat since it dropped (be warned, it’s super infectious), I think I might even prefer it to Bum Bum.

Yemi Alade has been an absolute force this year. I’m no expert on Afro-Pop particularly, or even Afrobeats, but I hope she’s getting the recognition she deserves. I noticed that she caught some flack for saying she’s on the same level as fellow Nigerian artists Wizkid and Davido, but I’d certainly back that.
