Lyrics: Odunsi Ft. Runtown – star signs

Star Signs!
I’m in love with girls who like to party,
drink barkadi straight and talk about star signs
I’m in love with girls who like to party,
drink barkadi straight and talk about star signs
Oh you gonna dance for me
Try to give up that thing for me, oh oh
Now she stuck on my socials
Trying to get into myy mind
You should know better
You a go getter
You just young and reckless
Now she holding on to my necklace yeah e yeh
I’m in love with girls who like to party,
drink barkadi straight and talk about star signs
I’m in love with girls who like to party,
drink barkadi straight and talk about star signs
NNNNight til the morning
Pray forr your loving
I want to know
Are you going to be my ride or die eya eyah?
Why you playing both side eyah
She wan ring my number
Love with the commerce
She dont’want to lover
She nor care about star signs
She only care about dollar signs
Calling on you, eh

Say baby girl give me something
Calling on you, ee eh
Say Everytime me misss you tire
Shey know is a socu something

Girl wen like to keep it low profile
Girls when go turn up on wen we dey clubing
Girls when go maya when we dey clubing
Girls wen for morning dem go still fine
Now we can talk bout star signs.
Oh oh
I’m in love with girls who like to party,
drink barkadi straight and talk about star signs (star signs)
I’m in love with girls who like to party,
drink barkadi straight and talk about star signs (star sign)

Odunsi aka The Engine is one of the very few foremost Alternative pop artistes leading the new generation of talented, non conforming, vibrant and carefree Nigerian Alte Musicians. Although this song was released October last year as the 11th track from his debut album rare. That is right, Odunsi is relatively new in the industry and a fresh breath from all the mainstream noise we get from just about every musician out there. Star signs sticks to the very core of Odunsi’s sound, an alternative jam that is different and appealing. The more exciting thing about the song is the fact that Runtown got featured in the song. We must confess, Runtown blended into the song like a chameleon blends into its environment.

Here is a video of the song below:

Positives

Star signs starts with some soul serenading instrumentals, from the intro you can already hear the freshness of sound that leads to a warm and mellow swell.
Star signs get an extra brownie point for appealing plot development and great lyrical structure. One can tell that the writer took his time to write the song and got a lot of things right.
Sharp, precise tonguing is needed to make this much sound quality. We found the use of sonorous pedal-point to be even more impressive and fascinating. The vocals can be likened to a course of delectables that were combined well to give what is usually called a balanced diet but this time a balanced sound.
The rich and resonant brass and the crisp and exact percussion dominate the scene throughout, as the main theme is somewhat developed.

Negatives

Although the song scores great in plot development and lyrical structure, it does not do too well in lyrical depth. Not that it scored badly, it still managed to score an average score in terms of lyrical depth, it's just that the structure and development were so great that we felt a little bit disappointed about the depth.
