Negatives

Did you listen to the song above? If yes, I'm sure you felt you've heard the song before. Well, yes you have! Diamond Platnumz took Naira Marley's soapy instrumental and tried to whip it as a new song! I don't know what the producers were thinking, but this is very obvious. This isn't even a case of sampling or interpolation, this is a case of theft. It is also possible that Diamond Platnumz has already cleared with both Naira Marley and Rexxie. Still, this song is un-original. The song sounds like a lame version of Soapy. So, if you think Soapy is a bad song, prepare for the worst when listening to this song. The vocals were clear but sounded absurd. The mixing and mastering were probably done hurriedly. If Diamond Platnumz is doing this for the clout, this was a lame move.
