The best selling South African singles of 2016

The biggest South African songs of 2017 so far

As we eagerly await the announcement of the SAMA nominees for 2017, we look at some of the biggest South African singles of 2017 so far.


Sketchy Bongo ft Kaien Cruz - Love Me In The Dark

The stunning beauty that is Kaien Cruz shines and glitters through as she dropped her rendition on hot beats and catchy instrumentals. Truth be told, 'Love Me In The Dark' streams through into the depths of the heart and soul and its music video is just one you’d love to enjoy for some visual beauty. You can already get in its groove and vibe.

AKA - Caiphus Song

Supa Mega has dropped his latest single 'Caiphus Song', to which the artwork was designed by Okmalumkoolkat. The song samples the great Caiphus Semenya's Matswale into a new version of a Doro love song fit for today.

Francois van Coke - Dit Rak Beter

The video for the song is exactly what you would expect from Francois - it's fresh, unique, and makes the rock star in you want to rock.

Vuyina - Let You Be You

Vuyina’s new song has a strong message for anyone who has ever tried to change the one they love. “Don’t you try to change me. I don’t try to change you. I let you be you,” the 17-year-old sings.

RubberDuc - Feet

'Feet' is the latest single released by RubberDuc off their debut album ‘The Secret Sunrise‘. The band’s first love song is captured in this beautifully and dramatically filmed music video:

Goodluck - The Open Sea

‘The Open Sea’ is a track that expertly captures and carries the spirit of summer. Now, Electro-pop trio Goodluck have released an equally sunny video to accompany the track, which the band recorded in collaboration with German duo Younotus. Shot in the Maldives, the video features Goodluck’s lead vocalist Juliet Harding as she lounges on a float in the ocean. The Maldives’ breath-taking, azure views act as the perfect backdrop for such a summer-oriented track.
