Verses

Nigerian music icon, Asa just released her new album! Yay!

After a 5 year hiatus from the music scene, Asa is back with her new 14-track album titled, Lucid, which features her previously released tracks, Good Thing and My DearLucid is a follow-up to her last album, Bed of Stones. Murder in the USA is the first song off the album.

Positives

'Murder in the USA' is a dark twisted pop song that figuratively talks about the death of love and how it affects people. This song will resonate deep into your chest if you've ended a relationship while your partner nurtures the break-up. Asa's silky vocals cut deep into the heart and it blended smoothly with the instrumentals. Her vocals were clear and audible. Asa sang beautifully with soothing melody choices. The back-up vocals were moderately placed and created a beautiful ambience for the song. This is a very creative take on a rarely talked about topic. She decided to take the pop route of two verses and a bridge, but on a soft rock instrumental.
