“Angeli, Angelina, you dey cool my temperature If you call, I go come deliver I no go fall e your hand, never Say na me you go love forever I’m a kaki, no fake leather Oh my Angeli , Angelina Oh my Angeli , Angelina”
Burna had a great if not outstanding 2018, we were being served one hit song to another. He capped off last year with the popular “Angeli, Angelina”. The song is a nice mid-tempo song love song with a fusion of Afrobeat and very subtle dancehall influences.
A series of instrumentals started playing before anything in the song. Then the drums and even Burna Boy's "Po po di po" sounded nice. It lead to a seamless transition to him singing.
From the lyrics of the song, we could tell already that the song was about a girl he really liked and all. Her name being Angelina.
The vocals of the song are clear, we did hear Burna Boy's voice without any troubles.
We liked the melody of the song, it flowed well for us. It was tuneful and melodic to our ears and we could not help bursting some shaku shaku and subtle Zanku to the song.
There were times we felt Burna Boy's vocals lacked expressiveness and emotions, it just showed traces of that from time to time. Whereas, we expected this to be quite consistent considering he was singing a love song. We know not everyone has Davido's fire, but then again, being too laidback in songs will make a certain people in the minority connect with the song the most.
