In a month of really remarkable music, we’d like to take a few minutes to highlight 10 tracks that we consider very impressive. In making these listicles, we consider production, vocals and a few other factors. We also create leeway for sounds from rising acts to shine through.

So, welcome to the September Single Picks from the TXT Editorial staff. Hopefully, it’s the first of many. Enjoy.

Oxlade— DKT

Oxlade takes serenades to a whole new level with this track. His vocals tend to infuse listeners with pure emotion and the talented vocalist uses this very well to his advantage, getting you deep in your feels with every line.

Wizkid— No Stress

Mashallah to the sultan of soft vibes. Wizkid dishes out a cool serving of melodies fit for everything, ranging from cuddles to waking and baking. A testament of what’s to come on the album.

Tems – Damages

A singing enigma, Tems easily made 2:49 feel like forever but also like forever just isn’t enough. Seamless on this reggae-esque tune, her beautiful voice washes over you in waves and is complemented by her rambunctious personality you can almost feel through your ear buds.

Davido – Fem

Audacious as always, Davido shushes haters and naysayers with this hit single. The bop carries all the confidence and self assurance of 30BG on its jovial tune with a hook that’ll hang around for a long time.

Simi – No Longer Beneficial

Simi dominates high pitches with such casual ease, naturally. Her stunning voice is only underscored by the pure expertise in the production behind this track. Everything about this song is 100% especially it’s production.

Amaarae – Fancy

Our newly crowned lady of alternative trap goes all out on this. Fancy feels absolutely fresh and captivating like cold grape juice, incredibly smooth too. Warning: will have your head bopping from :01. My question is what galaxy she found the producer on? Elite stuff.

WANI – All My Ladies

Sweet sweet melody. Bound to get juices flowing, Wani is definitely in his element. There’s a hint of henny in the tune and it’s intoxicating in all the right ways.

L.A.X – Go Low

Angelina has had the most fun if we’re being completely honest, with every Taye, Dami and Ola singing her praise. But this? LAX speaks directly to Angy and she’s wrapped in seductively sweet afrobeat attire. LAX is a maestro at this music thing and he gives listeners a wild experience.

Eugy – Love Blind

Damn. Eugy taps into sexual energies like never before on this track. With the guitar strumming straight to your soul, it feels every bit like perfection.

Olú- God Save The Queen

Is it jazz? Is it blues? Whatever it is inject it here- straight into our veins! Sincere and altogether refreshing, Olú prickles a curiosity inside that’s yearning to discover  more on her journey, wherever that’s headed.
