SONIC SOUL!

Korede Bello releases a new love track titled “The Way You Are”. The song was released on the 14th of July. One of the rare pure Rhythm And Blues songs that have been released recently. Korede Bello reminded us that not only did he have an appealing fashion sense and hairstyle, but he could also sing. He flexed his vocal prowess throughout the song and produced a sonorous song,

Positives

"The way you are" starts with a soothing guitar sound. The guitar sound played for a quite a while before Korede Bello started singing. The intro of the song gave us an impression that we were about to listen to a classic song and it was not a bad feeling at all.
This is another love song. Korede Bello insists that he loves her the way that she was. He went ahead to tell her that she was beautiful the way she was. We found a positive message in the song to be great. This earned the song some points. The structure of the song was not bad either. Even the plot development did not lag. All in all, the lyrics of the song managed to impress us.
For so long we had forgotten that Korede Bello has powerful vocals. We even feel that he did not explore his full vocal range in this song. At a point, when Mavin was just founded, he was touted as a replacement and heir apparent to Wande Coal. It is just sad that he has not lived up to expectations. His vocals were alluring and it fitted the song snugly.
The genre of the song is a welcome freshness from all the similar sounds in the industry. The melody is tuneful and that is just about it.

Negatives

While the Rhythm and Blues sound of the song is a welcome freshness. For some reasons the song fell too cool and failed to resonate with us. It did not feel like he put enough passion into it.

Bottom Line
 

The song has a freshness of sound, absence of musical clichés, colourful work, use of sonorous pedal-points. It is just about average for us. If it comes on on our favourite radio station, we probably wouldn't change it but we will not be looking forward to listening to the song.
