A nice song about a girl and various other things.

SONIC SOUL!

“If you send me the location
Then I’ll be right there
Let me come, come check you, my baby
No time, no
And my dawg is on probation
Another 5 years
Me bring girls to his location
No time, no”

British Rapper, Dave works with Afrobeat sensation, Burna Boy in what is probably seen as an unlikely collaboration eh? As usual, Burna Boy managed to make himself sound so natural and original in the song without sounding out of place.

Positives

A very sonorous intro vocal rendition by whoever they got to do the backup singing. Her performance blended almost too well with Burna Boy's intro.
Hello Nigerian musicians, you can learn a thing or two from Dave in the way he has managed to string a couple of not so related stories together in his lyrics without sounding abysmal. WE flowed along with him on his several topics of discussions.
The vocals of the song are great. From the backup singer to Burna Boy and Dave. We loved every bit of it and there were no distortions in the voice quality.

Negatives

Perhaps the only problem we have with the song is the lack of video. We feel a video will be able to narrate the stories better and even give the song some PR love.

Bottom Line
 

A nice fusion of Hip Hop and Dancehall. We did enjoy every bit of it. It is interesting to note that Burna Boy's Dancehall is a fusion itself, with influence from Afrobeat.
