When we started the month of July we were all excited not only because it was a new month but also because it was a month that we were meant to see the release of three of the most anticipated albums in Nigeria presently : A Better time , Made in Lagos , Twice as Tall. But so far none of the albums are yet to be released which has led many people to believe that the superstars behind this projects are trying to play their cards right in the music business waiting for who will release first.
We will be reviewing each album expected starting from the most top three anticipated album right now in the country:
1 A BETTER TIME (Davido): Davido has been one of the artists that have got people talking this lockdown . Davido who announced his album in May, then announced a song with Nicki Minaj and a song with Mugeez are both on the album. He also celebrated the gold certification of his song Fall in Canada and USA , dropped two snippet videos of songs on his album then dropped a funny message before unfollowing all the people he followed then going on a long social media break .
Album Predictions: Though there has been no official drop for cover photo for the album or track list or whatsoever but we will be listing the artists rumored to be on the album: We should definitely expect all the DMW boys on the album and Mayorkun is said to be on two songs on this album( Mayorkun was not on a good time album). Davido also announced Nicki Minaj and MuGeez so that is confirmed , we might also see Chris Brown on A Better Time , J Cole , Cardi B (If Remix) , Nas, Bella Shmurda amongst others . Davido who had originally announced July as the release month is yet to drop any song from off the album , we are hopeful we get maybe a song or the full album this month.
2 MADE IN LAGOS(Wizkid): Starboy Wizkid announced his Made in Lagos album in February 2018 but is yet to drop the album, though he dropped SoundMan ep last year that is not the album promised. Wizkid who has now become more socially active was once off the social media for a while too probably preparing for the album. Wizkid teased his fans by posting 17/07 on his page and made the fans think that was his release date.
Album Predictions: Wizzy announced that the album would feature artistes such as Burna Boy, Damian Marley (Jamaican), Tems, Starboy Terri, Ella Mai (British), Tay Iwar, Skepta (British Nigerian), Projexx (Jamaican) and H.E.R. (American). He also disclosed his sound production and engineering team to be BlaqJerzee, London, Sarz, Mutay and Juls (British Ghanaian), Dro (American) and Kel P. Wizkid dropped Smile ft H.E.R a song off the Made in Lagos album. Wizkid is also yet to drop the album cover or official track list but hopefully we see the album this month.
3 TWICE AS TALL (Burna Boy): Burna boy has also not been that active on social media in this lockdown probably due to preparation for his album . Burna who won the BET international act award is surely hoping to give another Grammy worth album
Album prediction: No official track list or cover from Burna boy but he dropped a song “Wonderful” from off his album . But we might be seeing Koffee and Angela Kidijo on the album no confirmation yet.
OTHER ANNOUNCED PROJECTS:
4 Adekunle Gold: Adekunle Gold sure is ready for another memorable time of his career . Gold announced August 21st as the release date of his album and has already dropped two songs of the album : Something different and AG Baby , with the two songs nicely accepted by his fans.
The album which he named Afropopvol1 is set to have Patoranking , Tekno amongst others on it. Surprisingly his Wife (simi) is not on the project but we should be sure to expect her vocals on it.
5 Tiwa Savage : Tiwa Savage has announced Celia as the name of her album. The album is also meant to drop in either August or September though no official track list or cover we are sure to see Davido on it through an announcement by Savage herself
5 Peruzzi: Peruzzi who took a break off social media sure had a fun time during the lockdown working with Speroach and a lot of household names such as Wande coal and Phyno . The project which is reportedly named Gaza is sure going to be a top project because Peruzzi never fails to deliver .
6 Fireboy: Fireboy who served us with New York City girl and Eli is set to drop a project this month named “Apollo” no official announcement yet from the artist but we should be expecting a good one from this artiste.
There are other projects also coming from : Tekno , Patoranking and others we should surely be expecting tough charts competitions if all these projects come out at the same time.
