WOODIE SMALLS FT. COELY - BAD
Woodie Smalls, an established name in the Belgian hip-hop scene, has finally dropped a new song! And not just a song, he came through with a feature of Belgian hip-hop queen Coely, who will release her second album next year. The two combined their talent to make one hell of a banger, ready for the radio.
LYNA - DADDY
Lyna, who came through with hit single 'Booty' a few weeks ago, is back with another female empowerment hip-hop track. This track is for the guys with the Balenciaga shoes, or the girls who want a guy with a pair of those sneakers. Her second EP 'Lemon Haze' is planned to drop on November 29!
TWEEVIERACHT - DELTA
Delta is the first music video from Tweevieracht's new album 'VIII' which dropped today. The album is a trilogy, of which II and IV already came out a while ago. Every song on VIII is exactly 2 minutes and 48 seconds, a play with their artist name. On this album, the Ghent based hip-hop collective consisting of Lerr and BLNK open up about fake news and their own concerns in society, such as the way media are changing facts and how Belgian and international politics aren't always the fairest game.
ICO - SIRI 3
ICO, who is known for his skills in producing tracks, has now finally released his own solo album, 'Petit Con'. Last Friday, he came through with the music video of 'Siri 3' in anticipation of his album which he has been working on since 2018. He's known for his funny videos on the gram, and now put all humorous skills into his song lyrics.
