Lyrics: Burna Boy – Secret ft. Jeremih X Serani

[Hook]
I know, know
I know, know
I know, know, know, know
Baby, can you keep a secret shhhh for a long, long time
When you’re awake or sleeping shhh
Say my name no time
I know, I know I don’t need more
Baby oh, but I got my wine
I know you want, you want to be my wife
[Verse 1]
Hey, say make me tell me say Angeli – fi relax
And don’t be tripping when I’m gone ’cause I’ll be back
Your friends tell me na your earls
Demma chat naa naa
Girl, I know you like it when I hit it from the back
I know you like it when I spend the money stack
I got a wifey but don’t worry about that
You already know that I
[Hook]
I know you wanna spend more time (spend more time)
I know you wanna spend more time but
Hey baby, can you keep a secret shhhh for a long, long time
When we are way gone sipping shhh
Say my name no time
I know, I know I don’t need more
Baby oh, but I got my wine
I know you want, you want to be my wife
[Verse 2]
Oh god
When me on bed that no mean say me done
Baby girl, I’m trynna show you where I’m coming from
You only talking ’cause I make you cum after
Everytime I bring you closer, closer
Smack your booty and choke ya
March like a soldier when I tell you “come over”, yeah
[Hook]
I know you wanna spend more time (spend more time)
I know you wanna spend more time but
Hey baby, can you keep a secret shhhh for a long, long time
When you’re awake or sleeping shhh
Say my name no time
I know, I know I don’t need more
Baby oh, but I got my wine
I know you want, you want to be my wife
[Verse 3]
She wanna dance to the beat, wanna conversate
Might end up in her bed, if it cost a day
It could be about a week when we on vacay
You know you got it coming when you come my way
I return my love for the woman that’s the one for me
I give you everything, you still want it all from me
I’ll pull up when you need company
[Hook]
I know you wanna spend more time (spend more time)
I know you wanna spend more time but
Hey baby, can you keep a secret shhhh for a long, long time
When you’re awake or sleeping shhh
Say my name no time
I know, I know I don’t need more
Baby oh, but I got my wine
I know you want, you want to be my wife

The eighth track on Burna Boy’s African Giant album. “Secret”, a very fascinating track with a unique sound featuring Jeremih and Serani. We absolutely love the vocals o the song and Serani’s vocal rendition was just sublime.

You can listen to the song below

 

Positives

"Secret" starts with a serene instrumental playing followed by Serani's smooth and absolutely beautiful vocals (if there is anything like that). We Were curious about the kind of the song the collaboration was going to be about, let's just say we were not disappointed from the very beginning.
The message of the song is clear and concise. They talk about a certain girl that they are in love with. The kinds of thing they want to do with her and hopefully, she would be able to keep a secret. The lyrical structure is average at best but the plot development managed to impress us somewhat.
The vocals of the song have to be one of the best things about the song. Serani managed to wow us. We enjoyed the contrasting and edgy sound Burna Boy gave the song. It was quite different from the more tender sound of Serani. Jeremih introduced a more balanced vocal rendition seamlessly. The vocals of the song score extra points with the contrasting but yet balanced tones.
We liked the melody f the song, from reggae fusion to Afrobeat to reggae/dancehall and tiny bit of pop for the culture. The song is rich in fusions and bend thereby giving it a very unique and memorable sound. All these genres managed to flow seamlessly into one another.
