EDITORS’ NOTES

Contemporary Naija pop is an unholy, utterly beguiling mixture of reggae, dancehall, hip-hop, soca, and pop—and Timaya is one of the genre's high priests. With his bulging guns and smooth-yet-staccato vocal style, he raps about his way up the ladder and the haters (and honeys) who've come out of the woodwork along the way. This is infectious stuff, with clattering West African rhythms and a synth-driven sense of international cool. But when it comes down to it, he's all about the “bum bum”—which has earned him more than a few fans across the pond in Jamaica and Trinidad.
