Plot Synopsis

A love song

SONIC SOUL!

Like a businessman, we know whole lot
We have no time
Dunno how long you can hold it
I know you want me inside
Baby, I’m a punching bag, bag
Do anything you want to me
Pretend you’re the President
I would be your country

Seyi Shay is on fire and we are loving her for it. This song is basically Da Beatfreakz featuring Seyi Shay, Mr Eazy and Shakka. The song is a fine mashup of Afro-pop, afrobeat and Mr Eazy’s more distinctive Banku style (although mostly a variation of afrobeat itself).

Positives

The intro beat does sound a little beat like Runtown's "mad over you". It kicks off the song followed by Seyi Shay's lovely intro. Shakka does talk over the song with an Afropop and dancehall feel to the song.
The vocals of the song are clear and concise, no distortions whatsoever and it was properly mixed and produced. Seyi shay's vocal prowess once again is sonorous and we really loved listening to her sing. Indeed, we could feel her expressiveness and edginess in the song.

Negatives

Lyrically, the song is not anything special. A lot of repetitions especially for the chorus. However, we could tell it was a love song.
The melody of the song is lovely, we did like it. However, at some point, our attention began to wane. This does not take anything from the quality of the song though, but it does let us know it is not evergreen material.
