[Intro]

Manmi Nwèl la rive
Tonton Nwèl pral pot anpil kado
Sanble m pa kalifye
Mwen pap vin pran nan barikad o
Timoun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Granmoun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Tout moun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Tout stil mizik se Nowèl
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (Saw di m la? oh oh)
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, e e)
(Afrobeat ou di Mika)
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, oh oh)
(Haspen Money Beat)
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, oh oh)
(M ap pase san eskanp)

[Verse 1]
Lè a rive
M paka tann, m paka tann, m paka tann ankò
Pou m al fete
M eksite, m pa fouti di w kisa k nan kò m
Lè m ap gade
Tout pwogram, tout afich, m wè se tout ki anfòm
Tout DJ pral byen pase
Tout djaz pral fè moun danse
Ou santi gen yon vayb do (sa e klè)
Yon vayb de fraternite
Tout moun anvi unite do
Pou toute la nativité
Ou santi w ap fè likes do
Menm IG mande anrage
Lèzòm pa vin pou fight
Pa gen bif ni joure, tout se lòv

[Hook]
Manmi Nwèl la rive
Tonton Nwèl pral pot anpil kado
Sanble m pa kalifye
Mwen pap vin pran nan barikad o
Timoun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Granmoun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Tout moun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Tout stil mizik se Nowèl
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, oh oh)
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, e e)
(Afrobeat menm?)
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, oh oh)
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, e e)

[Verse 2]
Zigizaw
Kite m eksplike nou kijan mwen santi m yo
Nwèl la se toujou pi bèl epòk nan vi m yo
Se landan l fanatik mwen yo te dekouvri m yo
Depi lè a se avèk lòv yo vle kouvri m yo
G on dal mizik k ap lage men y ap tann Mika lage pa l la
Se li yo pral plis pase nan tout ti sourit, nan tout bal la
Machann fanal la rive (ey)
Granmoun timoun vin achte (ey)
Se kè kontan tout kote
Ou welepepe

Hook]
Manmi Nwèl la rive
Tonton Nwèl pral pot anpil kado
Sanble m pa kalifye

Mwen pap vin pran nan barikad o
Timoun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Granmoun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Tout moun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Tout stil mizik se Nowèl
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, oh oh)

Kompasoul Impresses On 'No Rules'

No Rules is the debut album of Kompasoul, a new band from Montreal, Canada. The 13 tracks flow seamlessly and leave you dancing throughout the duration of the project. What's most impressive about Kompasoul is their versatility. While the band is able to churn out hard-hitting club bangers promoters will love (Pè severans, Pirana, Manje Pou 2), they also craft mellow konpa love and zouk hits DJs will spin. And the transition between the two sounds is effortless. Even...

Songwriter's Corner: Roody Laforest

"Cheri, mwen konnen m pa ase." That's what Roody Laforest sings on his debut single, Mwen Pa Ase. It takes an honest man to admit his shortcomings.

Wikimizik talked to him about his musical roots and writing process. We hope you enjoy his straight talk as much as we did. Who is Roody? How am I supposed to answer this question? Let's make it short...

    4Mula's Chapter 1

    Jude and Carl Edouard (Carlitow) Deslouches have been on our radar since they dropped Se Ou Mwen Vle and the subsequent EP. Once in a while, the brothers would tease us with a new track. Late last year, they introduced 4Mula, a new band with fellow Montrealites and former Vibrasyon members, Romuald Paul and Benjamin Guirand. Their debut, "Chapter 1", is a groovy ride anchored by the Deslouches' warm vocals. It's the kind of album that will jump start any party and keep it rocking all night long.
