5 New Albums You Need to Hear This Week on Audiomack

Press play on new albums from Wizkid, GloRilla, SleazyWorld Go, Sarkodie, and SoFaygo.

Wizkid — More Love, Less Ego

Big Wiz back. One of the most-streamed, most beloved artists on Audiomack, Wizkid broke internationally with Made In Lagos standout “Essence,” which hit the Billboard Hot 100 at the tailend of 2021. Wiz is the maestro of vibes, ushering African music into the Western consciousness with kickback-ready jams. More Love, Less Ego is a strong follow-up from an artist who has nothing left to prove. Features include Ayra Starr, Naira Marley, Skepta, Shenseea, and Skillibeng, Plus, the album’s message feels more relevant than ever given the general state of the world.

SleazyWorld Go — Where The Shooters Be

Kansas City rapper SleazyWorld Go has visions of gunning down his opps on nearly every one of his singles. His album Where The Shooters Be takes those premonitions and packages them into a grisly debut. He favors minimal productions, allowing for his crumbly flow and near-gross imagery to pop out and shock the audience. But SleazyWorld Go also knows how to keep it casual. His flow is never too hounding. Instead, his songs appear like torn-up journal entries, all pointing back to last year’s breakout, “Sleazy Flow.”

Sarkodie — JAMZ

Sarkodie is a pivotal African hip-hop artist, but he doesn’t mind sharing the spotlight. On his new project JAMZ, the Ghanaian rap titan invites Black Sherif, Oxlade, Lojay, Joeboy, BNXN and more to feature on nearly each of the 10 songs on the album. “I’ve been doing this for over 10 years, and I trust the process,” Sarkodie told Audiomack World last summer. “I believe in growth. I believe in going through the stages.” It’s his willingness to grow and learn from the next generation that keeps the music sounding fresh.

GloRilla — Anyways, Life’s Great…

GloRilla’s major label debut Anyways, Life’s Great… is a testament to manifestation. After her breakout smash “F.N.F. (Let’s Go)” with producer HitKidd, GloRilla got signed to Yo Gotti’s CMG label and secured a Cardi B co-sign on “Tomorrow 2.” The rise has been explosive for the young Memphis rapper, who carries with her a strong sense of identity. GloRilla is winning because she’s touchable—she has no pretense to her music. She’s a rapper who looks, sounds, and feels like a fiery friend chasing their dreams. What’s not to love?

SoFaygo — Pink Heartz

SoFaygo rises up from the digital underground, now signed to Travis Scott’s label, and formally debuting today with his long-awaited album Pink Heartz. Busting open online thanks to his contributions to the PluggnB scene, the Georgia-raised rapper has since been heralded an XXL Freshman, coming a long way from his breakout single “Knock Knock,” which was recorded on GarageBand. Pink Heartz is glossy without dulling SoFaygo’s chaotic edge. “Ever since I started making music, it was more about how I felt, getting my emotions off, and not only getting my emotions off, but also making a great song,” he told Audiomack World back in 2021.
