Africa’s biggest export musically in the person of Asa has never disappointed when it comes to recording quality music. The thirty-seven-year-old artist who recently released her fourth studio Album gave us an easy listening track which she titled stay tonight.
Asa has a Mojo for creating happy-sad emotional chords that gets the listener's attention. The song starts with major notes from an acoustic-like instrument with Asa’s vocals taking the listeners away. The 97bpm instrumental is calm and involves more of the bass guitar. The instrument progresses at a certain period and became more expressive.
The song tells a story of someone who wants her lover to stay all night cause one of them has what the other want.
Stay tonight is a melancholic song that you might only want to listen to when you want to read a book, travel, meditate or do yoga. It is a library song. It is a song that the melancholic audience can relate to. I bet a layman on the street of Lagos won’t think of downloading it because it relates to a particular audience. Stay the night might relate more to People who are introverted.
