Ebony Drops Potential Christmas Banger “Hustle” Featuring Brella

Since Ebony’s publicity team announced that she has 2 bangers coming up which are potential Christmas hits, ears have been on the ground to hear what the 90s bad girl has for us. The “Sponsor” hitmaker doesn’t disappoint as she gives us “Hustle” which features musician, Brella. Ebony sings about grinding to make both ends meet. It’s a struggle in the streets, so it’s only for Ebony to serve us with motivation. The most interesting part of the song is where she plays on words [again], saying “Mo ndi me oooh, mo ndi me dwa.” Listening to that statement alone may make you draw a conclusion that she’s being profane. But it’s actually Ebony pleading with customers/consumers to buy her items, since she puts up the personality of a trader in the song. the fast tempo Afropop song was produced by Danny Beatz. This is a potential hit!
