Self-acclaimed Mayor of Lagos, Mayorkun is back again with a sizzling new single titled Up To Something. After the success of True featuring Kizz Daniel, we expected nothing less. The Speroach produced single has a hot video too. check it out below.
When a song is performed on a minor key, it shows the genuine knowledge of music of the producer, songwriter, and artist/performer. The piano loop that Speroach used was infectious and pleasing to the ear. It was one of the things that drove the song. The stick sound that serves as the snare also gave the song a steady rhythm. Mayorkun went on to sing about women and encouraged them to be confident of themselves as they are. The lyrical composition was blissful and his vocal dexterity was second to none. The main positive of the song is the melody. The melody would make everyone want to sing along. Mayorkun never fails to deliver a pleasing melody every time he opens his mouth to sing.
As good as this song was, it still felt scanty. There were some elements missing in the instrumentals. The lack of harmony was a big miss. Even the subtle harmony that came up was not loud enough and there wasn't any need for a filter effect. Mayorkun's emotional resonance and performance vulnerability were great, but the use of harmony would have been a perfect placement.
