Naija Songs For Week 3 of March… We dug up old hit songs that surprisingly found their way back to the music charts due to their buzz on social media or massive recognition, like the Grammys and Movie premiere. Below, dive into the songs you should be listening to this week:

Burna Boy – “Level Up”

This African giant also wowed the virtual audience with his outstanding performance of ‘Level Up’ Off his award-winning album of 2020, Twice as Tall.

Level Up is a moody track that talks about Burna’s aspirations and dreams. The song exposed the Vulnerable side of Burna Boy, even how he felt after losing the first Grammy award recognition to Angelique Kidjo in 2020. “I remember when I couldn’t level up…….’Cause the Grammys had me feeling sick as fuck….Throwing up and shit …Asking questions like, “Why it wasn’t us? …….Almost had a nigga feeling envious”.

It’s not every day you hear a Naija hit song in a Hollywood movie, not really. After Davido’s performance in the sequel of Coming To America, Assurance made a huge comeback and is still waxing strong. Assurance is a love song where Davido confesses his warm love to his lover (Chioma my lover), promising never to leave her. However, when the cheating scandal broke out, the 2019 hit song started trending again. If you really want to know the hype about this mid-tempo jam, listen to it this week and find out.
