SONIC CLASSIC!

When you see me come around
I got you looking at me (got you looking at me)
I don’t need to spend my cash
Cos my swag’s not hard to see
Cos my swag don’t lie
You can’t deny
You feeling right yeah
You’ll be alright just being by my side
No need for fronting (fronting girl)
Let me tell you something (something girl)
No need for long thing, cos you feel so good just standing by my side
No need for fronting (fronting girl)
Let me tell you something (something girl)
No need for long thing, cos you feel so good just standing by my side
If you see me drive by… holla at your boy
I got more swag… holla at your boy
I pop more bottles… holla at your boy
Chilling with models… holla at your boy
If you see me drive by… holla at your boy
I got more swag… holla at your boy
I pop more bottles… holla at your boy
Chilling with models… holla at your boy
Hey girl
You got me thinking… there’s many things i can do to u
Hey girl
You got me wishing… I could take you home with me
Lets take one step at a time, 2 by noon
Be my girl, with you I rule
You are fresh and fly, don’t deny
Nothing feels better
No need for fronting (fronting girl)
Let me tell you something (something girl)
No need for long thing, cos you feel so good just standing by my side
No need for fronting (fronting girl)
Let me tell you something (something girl)
No need for long thing, cos you feel so good just standing by my side
If you see me drive by… holla at your boy
I got more swag… holla at your boy
I pop more bottles… holla at your boy
Chilling with models… holla at your boy
If you see me drive by… holla at your boy
I got more swag… holla at your boy
I pop more bottles… holla at your boy
Chilling with models… holla at your boy
If you see me drive by… holla at your boy
I got more swag… holla at your boy
I pop more bottles… holla at your boy
Chilling with models… holla at your boy
If you up tonight and you feeling alright, holla at your boy (holla at your boy)
Your jeans sag low your fresh fly boy, holla at your boy (holla at your boy)
If you up tonight and you feeling alright, holla at your boy (holla at your boy)
You are a pretty fine girl and you got no boy, holla at your boy (holla at your boy)
No need for fronting (fronting girl)
Something (something girl)
Long thing, cos you feel so good just standing by my side
No need for fronting (fronting girl)
Something (something girl)
Long thing, cos you feel so good just standing by my side
If you see me drive by… holla at your boy
I got more swag… holla at your boy
I pop more bottles… holla at your boy
Chilling with models… holla at your boy
If you see me drive by… holla at your boy
I got more swag… holla at your boy
I pop more bottles… holla at your boy
Chilling with models… holla at your boy
If you see me drive by…

Chilling with models…
If you see me drive by… holla at your boy
I got more swag… holla at your boy
I pop more bottles… holla at your boy
Chilling with models… holla at your boy

Holla at your boy, arguably the song that made Wizkid rise ro Stardom! Holla at your boy was released last 2010 and in case why you’re wondering why Wizkid gave a shout out to EME and then Knighthouse, well that’s because Wizkid was once signed to. Knighthouse before he joined EME. He recorded the song with Knighthouse. And just in case you’re wondering again who Knighthouse was. Well they were a big record label back in the late 2000s and early 2010s. They had musicians such as Mochedah and Saucekid signed to their record label. Holla at your boy was that groovy love song that got a lot of the youths hooked! It had the perfect storyline and video!

 

Positives

The song starts with Wizkid introducing himself and shootouts to the record labels that were involved in the recording and release of the song. From the intro of the song it was apparent that it was going to be a groovy and engaging song.
The lyrics of Holla at Your boy is straight forward. He was basically talking about/to a girl he liked. The lyrics of the song are relatable. Organised lyrical structure and an engaging plot development.
Wizkid's vocals were great. Perfect for the song. We liked his performance throughout the song.
What is even more impressive was the melody of the song. Afropop with a little bit of bounce and groove to it. We liked how tuneful it was, it carried the message of the song well. The beat of the skng complemented it well. It created a tuneful rhythm; the rhythm and the melody combine well to form and interesting harmony.
The video of the song has to be the highlight of the song. The high-school setting. The hot romance with Sophie Rahman (Now Sophie Alakija) back then. It was the fantasy of any boy out there. The song tapped to these fantasies and found a way to resonate to the majority of his audience.
