SONIC EXPERIENCE!

Blackface does not seem like he is going to be letting up one single bit. He keeps on insisting that 2baba is the villain of the story. According to him, 2Baba stole his song (African Queen). What actually piques our interest is why it took him this long to release his own version of of the hit song. Oh well, at this point we are more interested in how his version sounds in comparison to 2Babaa’s version. To be honest, we were taken aback at how good the song is.

Positives

The song starts with some heavy reggae-influenced instrumentals. we liked the progression of the song. It was pleasant to listen to. His vocal intro was not bad either.
The lyrics of the song are pretty much the same with 2Baba's African Queen; the song talks about how the girl of his dreams is his African Quen and whatnot. Generally, the song celebrates African Beauties. The song has good lyrics, a beautiful lyrical structure and a very realistic and interesting plot development.
BVlackface may not have 2Baba's vocal range but he sure can sing if he really wants to. His vocal performance was not bad, we liked the assertive vocals he demonstrated in the song thereby differentiating his version from 2Baba's version.
The melody goes a different path from 2Baba's version. One could argue that he went the easy route by trying to sing the song in reggae however, it is important to know that Blackface himself sings more in reggae/dancehall in comparison o any other genre of music.

Bottom Line
 

At the end of the day, the songs may be similar but they are different in their deliveries. This is not a bad version at all, the only thing is we heard 2Baba's version first and it has a whole lot to measure up to.
