This album deserves its own thread, plus I'm genuinely curious what will win here--I have no idea what I'll be voting for.

"on the low" is still my favourite

impossible, but my gut is leaning towards the obvious here (anybody)

Probably not voting for it but I was surprised no one mentioned Destiny in the other thread

gotta go with 'anybody'

Anybody is pretty undeniable. A few months ago Secret would have been my immediate choice. Tempted by Dangote and after the npr tiny desk thing I have Wetin Man Go Do stuck in my head bad

anybody is my real answer but i’m voting for gum body

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 2 December 2019 14:13 (one week ago) link

this whole album is fantastic, but anybody is the best song of the year.

next five after nobody something like this

gum body
killen dem
pull up

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Monday, 2 December 2019 23:48 (one week ago) link

title track is dope too

Jorja Smith f. Burna “Be Honest” has really grown on me too

rob, Tuesday, 3 December 2019 02:22 (one week ago) link

every time one of these tracks comes up on my playlist it's the best track, "Gum Body" takes some beating but then yeah the title track

on the low is one of my favs still

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Saturday, 7 December 2019 22:15 (four days ago) link

The real answer is Gbona but it came out so much time before the album that it feels previously released (that's the digital age for you), so as a 2019 release I would still say the one with which I discovered the album, namely Killin Dem, because it begins so raw and grows so hypnotic. But I don't disagree with my fellow voters, there are many highlights in these 19 tracks.

I voted for Anybody, but this is easily my album of the year.

between this and kehlani's for me

tony blair electric chair (||||||||), Monday, 9 December 2019 22:48 (two days ago) link

voted for Dangote as it sounds like Anybody is sure to win and I love getting the Dangote lyrics (or my fucked up mental approximation of them) in my head

rob, Tuesday, 10 December 2019 14:07 (yesterday) link

I learnt at work yesterday that Dangote is a Nigerian company that sold everything from groceries and clothing to now moving to cement and oil production in the Delta, and that mister Dangote is now the richest man in Africa.

Their commercials are all over CNN!
