In the past year, we have seen singles make an impact on the game more than fully-fledged albums. We put together a list of some of the trending songs and music videos for your listening pleasures.

You - King Tee Dee

The king is back! Uploaded on last Friday on YouTube, King Tee Dee's latest single You is one of the latest songs out with stunning visuals. King Tee Dee teamed up with Reggie Films for the game-changing video shot in Windhoek. It is a dance and festival-themed music video, which is beautifully adorned with Mshasho wear throughout. Music video director Undjee Reggie Zaire said he loved the creative control he was granted while working on the video. “King Tee Dee just wanted a dance video. We have not done a music video like this before, where staged acting ends up as a music video. This is a phenomenon that is popular in South America and I am glad we executed it well,” said Zaire.

Switch It Up - Lioness, Boity and Nazizi

Although not necessarily new, Switch It Up deserves an honorary mention because we are proud of how rapper Lioness is flying the Namibian flag high on this Coke Studio single. Switch It Up is Coke Studio's first-ever all-female song featuring Lioness, South Africa's Boity and Kenya's Nazizi. The rappers go bar for bar and our girl held her own on the song's opening verse. It is impressive how Lioness keeps disciplining these beats and on Switch It Up she once again took it to the top. The video is available on YouTube.

Ghost Rider - Vikta Juiceboy

Lifted from his debut album Bless Up, Ghost Rider is another single that is going to keep Vikta Juiceboy part of the music conversations for a long time. Shot in church, Vikta Juiceboy mentioned that it was the ideal venue for the video because he believes it signifies the true definition of really being delivered. “Being outside and inside the church is the same thing; I mean God is still watching,” he said.

Hou Op Lieg - Lize Ehlers

Describing this video, the singer shared that this documentary-style video aims to showcase a very unapologetic and passionate Lize Ehlers on various stages performing.

“This is my second trap song off my album “5” and I really wanted to inject some tongue-in-cheek satire to bring an Afrikaans trap song to audiences, which they can sing along to and maybe even use at the right moment in conversations,” she said.

Slave To The Rhythm - Timo Kevin

Producer and new DBS signee Timo Kevin recently released his single Slave To The Rhythm, featuring label-mates Waters and Lavinian. The production is pristine and the vocals complement the instruments well. This song has the potential to spend weeks on the charts and do big numbers online, if promoted well.

Side Effects - Kwxame Sankxrra

Giving his fans a taste of what to expect from his forthcoming project MDITO II, musician Kwxame Sankxrra recently put out a four-minute freestyle exploring various societal ills that juveniles battle with. We can't wait for the project.

No Longer a Slave - Nam Gospel United

Comprising of various household names in the gospel fraternity, Nam Gospel United is a music group that is doing incredible things on the gospel front.

The video was premiered in Windhoek about three weeks ago and before going to print it had 54 867 views on YouTube.
