Lyrics: Fireboy DML – What If I Say

[Intro]
Jo won ma lo’sanle…. Insama du
Jo won wa’le… Insama du (x4)
[Verse 1]
What If I Say, Make You Come Chill With Me In My Place
When You Go Fit Come Maybe This Friday
Me And You We Be Chilling In My Room
We Go Listen To Some Songs with my beats by dre.
Maybe We Could Do This To The Midnight Train
Baby Ee, Because I Want You, I Want You
Yes I Want You, Ye
And Everyday Girl I’ll Be Missing You
You No Fit Deny Say You Dey Miss Me Too
Cos I Know Say Na My Music You Dey Listen Too
With Your Pictures On My Wall Everywhere In My Eyes
In My Palour In My Room, In My Kitchen Too
Baby Girl You No Say Me I Reason You
Maybe Ee, Because I Love You, I Love You
Yes I Love You
[Chorus]
Oya Baby Give Me Love Oh, Eh
Jor Jor, Jor Jor,

Jor Jor, Jor Jor,
Oya Baby Give Me Love Oh

Funmi tan oh funmi tan gan
Jor Jor, Oh Give Me Love Oh
Give Me Love Oh

Baby Give Me Love Oh
Give Me Love Oh
[Verse 2]
What If I Say, Make We No Be Friends, Make You Be My Babe
Cos I Don They Fall And E Be Like Say
Me And You We Go Runaway, We Go Go America
In The Midnight Train
Your Mummy Doesn’t Even What To See My Face
Baby Ee, And I Love You I Love You,
Yes I Love You Ooh Ooh
Come To My Hood
Many Fine Girls But Na You I Choose
And All The Guys Want To Steal My Boo
Dey Get Money And They Get Body
But Nobody Else Wey Go Fit Fill My Shoes
Baby Girl You Know Say Na Me And You,
Baby Ee, And I Gat You, I Gat You
You Know I Gat You, Gat You
[Chorus]
Oh Baby Give Me Love Oh

When You Go Fit Come Maybe This Friday
Me And You We Be Chilling In My Room
We Go Listen Till I’m Satisfied
Give Me Love Oh
Baby Give Me Love Oh
Baby Give Me Love Oh
Now Oh.
[Outro]
Jo won ma lo’sanle…. Insama du
Jo won wa’le… Insama du (x3)
The End!!!

Fireboy DML is literally on fire and apparently, he does not plan on letting up. We still cannot get enough of his debut song and e are already being treated to a new track. What if is another love song that has a very relatable storyline. In this song, he talks about possibilities with a certain girl he is in love with. It felt like he was fantasising what life would be with her. Every single one of us has done that at one time or the other so the song resonated well with us.

Positives

The intro of the song is quite peculiar. It was sung in Yoruba and it also gave us this native South African vibe. We loved the Yoruba sound at the beginning, it was something relatively new and unique.
The storyline of the song is very relatable. It talks about the love story of Fireboy and his feelings for a certain girl. We liked the plot development of the song and we enjoyed every part of it.
Fireboy's vocals were clear and crisp, we had no issues hearing what he was singing. His vocal rendition was also impressive.
What if I say is a song with a great melody. It is tuneful and melodious. The heavy influence of Afropop is apparent in the song. The rhythm of the song is impressive. We liked the varying ranges of the song and the overall harmony of the song.

Negatives

The intro of the song could be hit or miss really especially for those that do not understand Yoruba, they could have easily decided that the song is predominantly a Yoruba song and lose interest. Whereas, that was the only part of the song with Yoruba in it.

Bottom Line
 

Fireboy has managed to give us a great song just as he did with Jealous without sacrificing much Lyrical quality, unlike a certain Wizkid soundalike. It is without a doubt that Fireboy will be going really far in the music industry and we cannot wait to see him grow and become a titan. We are excited at the prospect of that possibility as he seems to be enjoying a lot of love from fans currently.

    Very clean and melodious love song. I loved the intro infused with the "Southy" kinda vibe.
    Negatives
    I cannot fault this record in the slightest other that it is also a love song which is a very common genre every Tom, Dick & Harry jumps on!

    Fireboy has the potential to lead the next wave of musicians in the country. He has a very clean sound and matured lyrics. His sound may not appeal to some audience who like the “noise” that has been promoted the last few years. His style is soothing and measured.
