Top 40 Kenya 9th July

Top 40 Songs Kenya – 9th July 2019

Welcome back to the segment that reviews the top most popular songs in Kenya right now; This is the Top 40 Songs Kenya – 9th July 2019. The data is provided by Apple Music. July is off to a slow start; there are barely new songs in the charts and that is fine. I was actually considering doing the full 100 songs but that would be very tedious on my end.

For the newcomers, I look at the top 40 songs every two weeks and the reviews are summed up in two sentences. If I reviewed the song in a previous article, I just give the score; you would have to go back to the older posts to see what I thought about the song. Unfortunately, I’ll have to keep repeating the rules every time because I’m a nice guy. With that said, these are the top 40 songs in Kenya as of 9th July 2019.

#40 Dreamville feat Buddy, Smino, Cozz, EARTHGANG, JID & J Cole – 1993: So, Dreamville released a new compilation which I have enjoyed so far. A full review is coming soon but I love the 90s rap feel of the song and how they seem to have fun making the song. 9/10

#39 Lil Nas X & Cardi B – Rodeo: 7/10

#38 DaBaby – Suge: 6/10

#37 Dreamville feat EARTHGANG – Swivel: This song is actually from a different album by EARTHGANG and it is a vibe. I could listen to this kind of hip hop all day. 8.5/10

#36 Chris Brown feat Justin Bieber -Don’t Check On Me: This is one of my favorite songs from Chris Brown’s new album. Justin made a better guest appearance in this song than in that weird song with Ed Sheeran. 8.8/10

#35 Koffee – Toast: 8/10

#34 Dave feat Burna Boy – Location: 6/10

#33 Dreamville feat J Cole, Zoink Gang, KEY! & Maxo Cream – Oh Wow…Swerve: Can you kindly wait for a full review? Because I don’t think two sentences will emphasize how good this compilation is. 8.5/10

Don’t worry, the review is actually in the works. Check back after a day or two.

#32 Wiley, Stefflon Don & Sean Paul feat Idris Elba – Boasty: 8/10

#31 Dreamville feat JID, EARTHGANG, Buddy & Guapdad 4000 – Wells Fargo: A fun and silly song from the compilation. These guys were really having fun in the studio. 8/10

#30 Rayvanny feat Diamond Platnumz – Tetema: 7/10

#29 Diamond Platnumz – Kanyaga: It is official, Diamond is making or involving himself in songs that are about verbs. First, it was Tetema, Kainama, Inama and now we have Kanyaga. 6/10

#28 Ed Sheeran feat Khalid – Beautiful People – Finally, a song I like from Ed’s upcoming collaborations album, This is a beautiful song from two great artists who share great chemistry here. 9/10

#27 Dreamville & Cozz feat REASON & Childish Major – LamboTruck: A slow song and I’m not so sure about it. Yeah, the bars are tight but I can’t seem to enjoy it as much. 7/10

#26 J Cole – MIDDLE CHILD: 8.2/10

#25 Rema – Dumebi: 6/10

#24 Dreamville, Bas & JID feat Guapdad 4000, Reese LAFLARE, Jace, Mez, Smokepurpp, Buddy & Ski Mask the Slump God – Costa Rica: Goodness me, all of those guys in a three-minute song. I can’t tell who’s who (except for Bas) but I vibe with it. 8/10

#23 NSG – OT Bop: 7/10

#22 Burna Boy – Gbona: 9/10

#21 Nviiri The Storyteller – Pombe Sigara: One of the first songs to come out from the Sol Generation label and it is off to a good start. Nviiri is a great artist and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us. 8.5/10

#20 Diamond Platnumz feat Inama: 8/10

#19 Ethic – Pandana: 7/10

#18 Nicki Minaj – MEGATRON: 6/10

#17 Miracle Baby feat Shalkido, Masilver, Lexxy Yung & Qoqosjuma – Wamlambez: 4/10

#16 Lil Nas X feat Billy Ray Cyrus – Old Town Road: 9.5/10

#15 Young Thug feat J Cole & Travis Scott – The London: 7/10

#14 Post Malone feat Young Thug – Goodbyes: So, Post Malone makes better songs about breakups than bragging and that’s okay with me. He can replicate Better Now a million times for all I care. 7.5/10

#13 Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello – Senorita: 7/10

#12 Dreamville feat JID, Bas, J Cole, EARYHGANFG & Young Nudy – Down Bad: Is there really a need for me to write a review? You already know I vibe with almost every song so you can guess the score. 8.5/10

#11 Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber – I Don’t Care: 6/10

#10 Drake feat Rick Ross – Money In The Grave: 7.8/10

#9 Burna Boy – On the Low: 8.5/10

#8 Sauti Sol feat Bensoul, Nviiri the Storyteller, Crystal Asige & Kaskazini – Extravaganza: 9.4/10

#7 Chris Kaiga feat Tezzla – Zimenice: 7/10

#6 Dreamville feat J Cole, Lute & DaBaby – Under the Sun: We should do everything possible to protect J Cole. He is the only reason why I still have hope for Hip Hop. 9/10

#5 Harmonize, Burna Boy & Diamond Platnumz – Kainama: 7/10

#4 Chris Brown feat Drake – No Guidance: 8/10

#3 Burna Boy – Anybody: 7.8/10

#2 JoeBoy – Baby: 6/10

#1 Ethic Entertainment – Figa: 6/10

Today’s chart is evenly balanced out. Despite new songs coming from Dreamville only, I don’t think anyone can complain. I just wonder how long it will take for the Figa remix to make an appearance. Tbh, that was a poorly mixed remix. Yeah I said it. Come at me bros. I got time.
