Song of the Day: Where’s The Love? – Neak

After making his entry on the blog last month with single, ‘Abstract’ featuring rapper Since9ine6ix, NEAK makes a return, claiming the Song of the Day spot with latest track, ‘Where’s The Love?’

Speaking of the track, which arguably has a tinge of Kanye West (pre-Kardashian), Neak says: “As people, we are affected by societal outcomes and the ways in which we interact with what’s presented to us (media, news, etc.). In this record, I touched on what has affected me and many others, and how it relates to the way we see life; addressing various perspectives that we inherently embrace and live under day-to-day.”

‘Where’s The Love?’ is now out on all major streaming and download sites. Have a listen below…

Song of the Day: Control – Davido x Django23 x Big Narstie

Following on from becoming the first Nigerian Act to reach 100 Million views on Youtube for ‘Fall’, which is also the longest charting Nigerian pop song in Billboard history, DAVIDO teams up with rap sensation DJANGO23 and the biggest Rap personality in the UK, BIG NARSTIE for the bouncing summer slam ‘Control’.

Snappy clicks, punching bass and percussive shakes are layered with sirens and ad-libs as producer mastermind Rymez, responsible for chart hits including Wiley ‘Heatwave’ and a string of Stefflon Don smashes including – Hurtin’ Me, Senseless and Don Walk, delivers a masterful creation that lives for this three-strike rapper combo.

As the sounds and worlds of global rap, entertainment and genre gaps rise and merge, ‘Control’ is the perfect example of how music is crossing more boundaries than ever before. Having become Nigeria’s biggest rapper to gain success in the United States and subsequently be the leader of Afrobeats in the Billboard charts, DAVIDO has been key in spreading Afrobeats globally. Meanwhile former UK promoter and Rap star DJANGO23 has blown up to become one of the most hotly tipped entertainment acts in recent months following releases ‘Suggardaddie’ featuring Tekno and ‘Give them Django’. His experience in delivering sell-out concerts and parties with A-Listers including Kanye West, Nas, The Game, Madonna, Damian Marley and more has made his transition between the worlds of entertainment business and music a seemless one. Finally, needing no introduction, Entertainer, Bafta nominated TV presenter and rap star BIG NARSTIE seals together what the all-star cast for this certified smash.
