Lyrics: Nonso Amadi Ft. Simi – Better

Verse 1
You know me sleep on top the sofa
I keep on dreaming you come over
Please let me shift your body closer
Please let me move your body closer yah yah
I heard your daddy was a soldier
We couldn’t see you till you’re older
But now I’m driving in your hometown
Why don’t you come up in my rover yah yah
You know say I love when you’re always online
Baby I want make I dey by your side
And I no wan loose you
You dey for my mind o
I gotta explain first see
Chorus
See I could do better
Oh I could do better
So I could do better
I could do better na na
I could do better
Verse 2
I’ve been waiting no I can’t lie
And you can see it deep in my eyes
When you come my area
I can meet at the cafeteria
Baby ah
You can pretend I’m a stranger
And I can pretend I’m in danger
You can rescue me
You already know I won’t let you leave
But if you wanna be my bobo
Ife o oloyi
O di don don
I call you my baby
Call me odo
You make my heart beat like the gan gan
But you can do better
Chorus
See I could do better
Oh I could do better
So I could do better
I could do better na na
I could do better
See I could do better
Oh I could do better
So I could do better
I could do better na na
I could do better
Bridge
Baby gimme once I see ya
Why you going now when I see ya
Baby don’t do like that
No I won’t let you leave
Do better
Call me when you wanna leave
Baby don’t do like that
Baby don’t do like that o
No I won’t let you leave
Do better
I can make you feel better

“Do Better”; a soul serenading collaboration from one of the foremost Rhythm and Blues singers in Nigeria, Nonso Amadi (okay he is currently not really in Nigeria but you get?) in collaboration with a more indigenous Rhythm and Blues singer in Simi. This sounds like one of those collaborations that will be evergreen. A thing of legend and timeless. Will the song reach the height we have projected on it due to the profile of the singers in the song? Time to find out in the review.

 

 

Positives

"Better" starts off like a foreign Rhythm and Blues song. We completely loved the vibe we got from the song from the very beginning to the ending of the song. The song is smooth and beautiful to listen to.
The lyrical structure is great and the plot development is great. The plot itself is not impressive though.
Where the song lacks in lyrical depth, it makes up for it with rich vocals. The renditions of both parties were buttery-smooth and without being forced. They absolutely sounded beautiful. We were able to resonate with them as the vocals managed to get us on their wavelength.
We loved the melody of the song, the distinct RnB sounds. Nonso Amadi's more foreign sound and Simi's more indigenous sound. They were a good experience for our ears. The way the sounds overlapped and eventually blending. It produced a memorable and melodious track.
The ins

Negatives

The lyrics of the song could have been better. The song ended being a sort of cliche like song. The lyrics of the song ended up making it seem like any other love song out there.
