|The 14 Best Songs Of 2014 by jayflex: 8:22am On Dec 26, 2014
2014 will go down as one of the most interesting years for music followers and artistes alike. It was a year in which many new artistes got their foot in the door, while some not so new ones threw down statements of intent to rule our airwaves and playlists for as long as possible.
Its never easy sieving through thousands of truly amazing songs to draw up a list of just 14 but we kept our focus with an eye on originality, production lyrical content and attitude to give you Kizaro's best 14 songs of 2014. We wish y'all a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year!
14. Patoranking Ft. Tiwa Savage - "Girlie o" Remix
Patrick Okorie's career ascended to new heights this year after his monster breakout song Alubarika put the Dancehall crooner on the map big time. Girlie o, the follow up song took the music scene by storm and stayed on rotation across the country on Nightclub and Radio playlists for months. The song caught the attention of Mavin Record Label First Lady Tiwa Savage who lobbied her way into a remix of the song that blew us away and earned the No. 14 spot on our list.
13. Nico and Vinz - "Am I Wrong"
The Norwegian duo of Kahouly Sereba and Vincent Dery scored breakout success with this addictive head nodder of a track about individuality and the importance of chasing after your dreams. Kahouly (Nico) and Vincent (Vinz) of Ghanaian and Ivorian ancestry infused their African heritage into the song with a thumping drum roll, emphatic guitars and passionate vocals that leave you in awe of the musical depth that these two guys bring to the table. Am I wrong turned out to be the surprise hit of the summer and was number one across Scandinavia and the United Kingdom. It also went Platinum in the United States with a million copies sold by June 2014. The beauty of the song is the sheer seriousness of the lyrics and earnest vocals diluted by the catchy beat and instrumentation. A classic piece of work and the best song out of Norway in almost thirty years.
12. Davido - "Aye"
Davido tore up the charts and airwaves in 2014 with his uber love song. An effortlessly charming track that describes unconditional love from a dreany eyed female. Though pilloried and scoffed at by critics for its puppy love lyrics it was a massive hit and Davido's biggest song of 2014.
11. Joe El Featuring Tuface - "Hold On"
Kennis Music artiste and Tuface Idibia sound-alike/disciple released this inspirational smash hit in the company of Tuface Idibia himself. Joe El born Joel Amadi in Kaduna State achieved his dream by featuring his idol Tu Baba on this track. Splendid song with uplifting lyrics and a meaningful message. Definitely one of the best songs of the year and a welcome departure from the champagne and booty fixation the music industry and fans alike have been fixated on.
10. Runtown - "Gallardo"
Douglas Agu aka Runtown marked his spot in 2014 as the artiste to watch with Gallardo. The Enugu state born singer burst into the limelight with this song featuring Davido and hasnt looked back since and has come a long way since he featured on tracks for Phyno and J Martins few years ago. Probably one of the most played songs in years and one that leaves the listener trying to wrap his/her mind around the unusual but addictive traditional infusions.
9. Wiz Khalifa - "We Dem Boyz"
Trust Wiz Khalifa to deliver an anthem every once in a short while. We Dem Boyz marked a shift in style by Khalifa from his regular stuff to a more Dirty South/Atlanta Crunk format with a light auto-tuned flow. A critical and commercial smash from a rapper on top of his game and bold enough to tinker with his already successful blueprint.
