Burna Boy – “Monsters You Made” featuring Chris Martin.

Off the ‘Twice As Tall‘ album, here is track 12 – “Monsters You Made” where Burna Boy teamed up with Chris Martin of Cold Play. About this song Burna said “I think i started to write this over the lockdown, when a lot was and is still happening, I think i’d just watched some fucked up sh*t and that was what switched up my mood. People need to understand what’s actually happened in Rivers, which is my home state in Nigeria. It’s like someone digging up under your house, taking what they want that may be valuable to them. But they have destroyed your home, now it’s unsafe and now no longer home to you again. The envirnomental situation have been going on for years and years and no one is helping, but then people will only hear about the pipe bombing or kidnappings. They should understand that it’s never just that one side to the story and that everything has a root cause.

Listen to the track below and also get the Lyrics

LYRICS

Calling me a Monster,
Calling us fake, no way no way
Calling me a Monster, just cus we say

[Verse 1 – Burna Boy]
We’re from the block where it rains
Where we create barricades
Keep opposition away
That’s why we are strapped with the K’s
Don’t get kidnapped from your place
Cuz it could happen today
Not knowing how to behave
That is a sign that you may
Just loose your life what a waste
Your body found in a lake
You fucked around and the fisherman found you drowning for days
You know we come from a place
Where people smile but it is fake
How could they smile if you look around they are surrounded by pain
I’ve seen the sky turn to grey
It took the light from the day
It’s like the heads of the state
Ain’t comprehending the hate
That the oppressed generate
When they’ve been working like slaves
To get some minimum wage
You turn around and you blame
Them for their anger and rage
Put them in shackles and chains
Because of what they became

WE ARE THE MONSTERS YOU MADE

[Chorus – Chris Martin]
Calling me a monster, calling us fake
You make the minotaur the dinosaur wake
Calling me a monster, just ‘cause we say
No way, no way, no way
Calling me a monster, make no mistake
That there’s only so much that you can take
La di da do di da do day
We are the monsters you made

[Verse 2]
I bet they thought it was cool
Probably thought we was fools
When we would break all the rules
And skip them classes in school
Because the teacher dem teaching
What the white man dem teaching
Dem European teachings in my African school
So fuck dem classes in school
Fuck Mongo park and the fools
That said they found River Niger they’ve been lying to you
Ain’t no denying the truth
See what im tryin to do
Is draw the line for the mothers crying we’re dying as youths

Come walk a mile in my shoes
See if you smile at the truth
See if you digest your food
That’s when you might have a clue
Of what the fuck we go through
Your fucking lucky if you
Live through the day better pray that, God always staying with you
Aint fucking safe anyday the reaper ‘ll be coming for you
We need a change and it ain’t no way ima take an excuse
My Niggaz finding a way
Or fucking smile in the grave
This is the price that you pay
WE ARE THE MONSTERS YOU MADE

[Chorus – Chris Martin]
Calling me a monster, calling us fake
You make the minotaur the dinosaur wake
Calling me a monster, just ‘cause we say
No way, no way, no way
Calling me a monster, make no mistake
That there’s only so much that you can take
La di da do di da do day
We are the monsters you made

[Outro – Mama Burna]
Since we met you people 500 years ago
Look at us, We having giving everything
We are still giving
In exchange for that we have got nothing, nothing
And you know it
For those who think this is over, over where
Is it over?

Davido x Focalistic – “Champion Sound” 17

The Ke Star Collaborators (Davido and Focalistic) Reunites On This Amapiano Party-Starter CHAMPION SOUND.

Just as Davido is still busy hitting the streets of social media with his #1Million Challenge, he slams us with yet another record titled “Champion Sound” featuring Focalistic. The South-African Amapiano god, Focalistic took this new record to a new level as Davido puts him on a High Pop Vibe.

Nigerian vocalist/producer Davido blends traditional African elements with global mainstream pop for a sound that’s equal parts intriguing and infectious.

Within a short year-time, Focalistic’s ability to blend honest rap lyrics to viral Amapiano instrumentals has endeared him to the music industry of South Africa.

We can’t be the only one who thinks Davido and Focalistic are arguably the sickest collaborators in the music industry right now. As they did in the past on Ke Star Remix, they are back with an even hotter jam and this one is dubbed, “Champion Sound”, with the slickest touch of Amapiano beat that will have your subconscious jumping for joy once it sinks in.

On this track, Davido informs anyone who cares to listen that he has been doing his Hit thing for about 10 years now and he definitely isn’t retiring soon. With an assist from Focalistic, the sound is moulded into one which will resonate with this generation for the longest.

Listen and Enjoy!
