Reminisce finally releases his first single for the year and it is really not that bad, errm if you are into Yoruba Rap/Trap. Although it has already been established that his target audience are people that enjoy listening to Yoruba Rap.
We really loved the intro of the song. we loved that piano sound that was playing right from the intro. It gave the song this kind of classic feeling.
The message of the song is quite mixed. While he insists that he did not come to play in Lagos, he uses some choice words. Knowing Reminisce, we could not help but feel that some of these words do have more than one meaning.
We enjoyed the melody of the song. It was well controlled by the rhythm of the song which is superb. They combine to give the song an impressive harmony. The rhythm of the song sets a good pace for the song and is in total control, we loved the sound it produced.
The instrumentals are one of those few instrumentals that do not sound like every other one out there. It is quite unique and measured. It was not competing for our attention in the song.
The song was sung in Yoruba and really we are not supposed to hold this against Reminisce as most of his songs are in Yoruba.
It feels like more and more rappers are moving away from pure rap and mixing it with trap music. While Reminisce is actually one of the few that truly raps, in this song, he did not really.
