SONIC SOUL!

If I tell you
You are the only one I want
The only one I need
If I tell you
You are the one that makes my heart beat
Shey you go believe?
If I tell you say na you dey rock my world
For you I give my all
If I tell you say na you dey make my heart beat
Shey you go believe?

We got a request to review this song, as a matter of fact, we were accused of not reviewing any Ric Hassani songs. Just to put it out there, we are not biased and we do not select certain musicians’ songs to review. We review music just about from every Musician. Let’s go straight to the review then.

 

 

Positives

The Intro instrumental is smooth and a good introduction to the song, the introduction of Falz' lines was a welcome addition. It was a great decision to start the song with Falz's rap. It gave the song this extra energy.
The lyrics of the song passed the message of the song across accordingly. We were able to tell they were talking about love immediately without second-guessing. The lyrical depth scores an average rating from us and it was without any unnecessary fluff.
The vocals of the song were quite varied, From Falz's rather imposing vocals during his rap, to Hassani's smooth and sonorous vocals and the more street-like vocals of Olamide. The vocals were clear and crisp. We could hear what they were singing clearly.
The Melody of the song is rich, warm and memorable. We really enjoyed it. It felt like a wedding song even without the video when it got to some point before Olamide's part.
The instrumentals of the song are well varied and balanced. NO overly aggressive and loud instrumentals as is the norm for most songs these days. The instrumentals did a great job to support the vocals and melody of the song without contesting for attention.
The video of the song sets a great scenario. The message passed across accordingly, Cupid in the air, the wedding setting and all. Even the light and playful dance scenes in the video was perfect for it.

Bottom Line
 

This is a great love song. We liked the fusion of Rhythm and Blues with Hip-Hop in the song. It was a perfect blend with both Hip-Hop artists bringing entirely different styles and sound to the song. It was like a collaboration made in heaven. We just downloaded the song and we will be adding it to our playlist.

This song earns a rating of SONIC SOUL!
