We are presenting you with a countdown of the five popular songs in the nation right now. For this week, we have two new hot entries on the chart that debuted in fifth and four places respectively.
Top five songs of the week ending Aug 31.
1. Grace by Soul Fresh ft. Quincy B
2. Crazy by Quincy B
3. Bartender by F.A
4. Yamayama Things by Waste Dem
5. Pretty Mama by Teddy Ride
For this week in fifth place, we have Teddy Ride with “Pretty Mama”. The meteoric raise of this song in the local musical industry has amazed many big DJs, among them notable Liberian DJ As a Boy, who has described the song as “a bomb about to explode.”
In fourth place slot we have “Yamayama Things”. Released four months ago, the single has done much to hit the airwaves. The Bushrod Island native, Waste Dem, might be one of this year’s breakout artists if the song continues to hit the public. To know the driving force behind this song’s rise on the charts, one should ask the question, “What are Yamayama things?” Listen to the song.
F.A is still remaining in third place with “Bartender”, which is gradually losing steam. However, he just released in a second video from the same album, Mr. F.A, called “Thank You”. In the video, F.A is seen in a church and on top of Ducor Hotel.
“In life we all go through our ups and downs but, at the end of the day, we must look up and simply say “Thank You,” F.A said.
Quincy B jumps two steps from fourth place on the chart last weekend to reach second place with “Crazy”. This single has been popular among the public because of its danceable tune.
A few days ago the Afro pop artist released yet another feature hit single called “You’ll Stay Long Inside.” The phrase has been a popular Liberian colloquialism that leaves gossipers and naysayers to their own devices when there is nothing left to say about a particular issue. “If you come tell me that my girlfriend is rotten… you pah, you will stay long inside – da your business,” the song goes.
Up at number one, Soul Fresh, the hottest rap duo in the country, reigns for a third straight week with “Grace”, featuring Quincy B.
The home of JB, rap group’s head, was recently burgled. It is estimated that the thief might have walked away with clothing and other materials during the artists’ endorsement deal with XL energy drink gig promotion.
LIB Life top five songs chart will be back next week, and hope we might get something new.
