Here's Abrantee's rundown of the biggest new Afrobeats songs you need to hear this month.
Kicking off the top ten with two big names that come together in a BIG way on 'Down On One'. The latest track from 'Sarkology' sees Sarkodie and Fuse ODG team up and the result is amazing.
Put simply, this song isn't called 'Make You Dance' for no reason. Lock in.
In at number eight it's 'Drop'. Get ready to get down to this Afrobeats tune.
OK, so it might only be February, but that hasn't stopped Atumpan from bringing strong summer vibes to this Afrobeats dance anthem.
R2bees is kicking off 2014 with the high-flying track 'Love', which was produced by KillBeatz and features a video directed by Justin Campos.
Quite simply, 'Stupid Love' is doing it for me in a big way as we kick off 2014.
As you might expect from a song featuring L.A.X and the hotly-tipped Wizkid, 'CARO' brings the Afrobeats vibe to the dancefloor in a big way.
There's no stopping David O's 'Skelewu'. The now certified Afrobeats anthem gets people dancing on the rooftops of their cars in the accompanying music video - and has even won a fan in footballer Samuel Eto. Hit YouTube to watch a video of David teaching him the 'Skelewu' dance.
Shata Wale dropped 'Everybody Likes My Thing' at the end of 2013 and it looks set to do big things this year.
The infectious rhythms and vocals on 'Khona' come from the amazingly talented Uhuru. Watch out for the groove on this one!
