Lyrics: Rotimi – Love Riddim

Baby baby, yeah
Baby baby, yeah
(H Money)
Wish I could start it over
Baby I need you over
Wish I could taste
kiss you down by your waist
He treats you wrong
Wish I could show you love
Wish I could make you know it
Baby you need to know it
Where do you go every time I touch you there? (yeah)
Whispering love, ain’t nobody gotta hear
He lost control, does he even know you here?
Nobody knows, I just keep it in my head
I don’t say too much
(Baby baby, yeah)
I’m just here to touch
(Baby baby, yeah) baby
I don’t say too much
(Baby baby, yeah)
I’m just here to touch
(Baby baby, yeah) baby
I’m just here to touch
(A na na na, na na, a na na na, na na)
Here to touch
(A na na na, na na, a na na na, na na) baby
I’m just here to touch
(A na na na, na na, a na na na, na na)
Here to touch
(A na na na, na na, a na na na, na na) baby
I’m just here to touch
(Pull up)
Baby, baby yeah
Baby, baby yeah
You touch me, I nu-nu (ohh)
Tonight we go late-late yeah (yeah)
I know you they see me (ahh)
You make me look easy (ohh)
Tonight you go have it your way
I make you go, oh ooh oh
You make me go, oh ooh oh
You know when I, oh ooh oh
You like when I, oh ooh oh
I go down
Go low (go low)
Go low (go low)
Go low (go low)
Go low (go low), go low (go low), go low (go low)
You love when I
Go low (go low)
Go low (go low)
Go low (go low)
Go low (go low), go low (go low), go low (go low)
Make it rise, make it rise (rise)
Make it rise, make it rise (rise)
Put the love in disguise (rise)
Make it rise, make it rise (rise)
I don’t say too much
(Baby baby, yeah) rise
I’m just here to touch
(Baby baby, yeah) rise, baby
I don’t say too much
(Baby baby, yeah) rise
I’m just here to touch
(Baby baby, yeah) rise, baby
I’m just here to touch
(A na na na, na na, a na na na, na na)
Here to touch
(A na na na, na na, a na na na, na na) baby
I’m just here to touch
(A na na na, na na, a na na na, na na)
Here to touch
(A na na na, na na, a na na na, na na) baby
I’m just here to touch (touch)
touch
(Baby baby, yeah) touch
(Baby baby, yeah) touch
Rotimi the popular actor in POWER series is one heck of a singer and we are surprised we really hadn’t heard of him till recently (we are covering our eyes in shame). Actor, singer and songwriter, a man of many talents and this was demonstrated in his vocal prowess in Love Riddim. The song is a love song dedicated to a certain girl that he is probably all up in his feelings for, I mean that is the only way to explain the amount of emotions invested into the song.

 

 

Positives

Rotimi starts Love Riddim with a nice vocal performance. We liked the accompanying instrumentals that were playing in the song.
The lyrics of the song are as straightforward as straightforward lyrics can go. He is obviously crazy about the girl he spends the whole part of the song singing about.
Rotimi's vocals were the highlight of the song. We were really blown away and he exceeded our expectations really. We love the varying range of his vocals and this demonstrated his vocal abilities. We could also feel the passion in his voice. This got us on an empathic level with Rotimi without even first noticing.
The melody of the song is the second best thing about the song. We loved the Rhythm and Blues sound with a little bit of Afropop here and there. This made the melody of Love Riddim unique and rich. Furthermore, the melody of the song is tuneful and certainly memorable. We enjoyed the rhythm of the song. The instrumentals did a decent job of giving the song a consistent and matching lyrics with the melody of the song.
All in all, the melody and rhythm of the song do combine to give an interesting harmony.

Negatives

While this is a great song we were worried about the quality of lyrics. The lyrics of the song seemed to focus on the superficial aspects of love. Furthermore, the song was plagued with too many repetitions (not that you will notice right away though)

Bottom Line
 

This is the one time, we can forgive not so great lyrics. It's not as though the lyrics were terrible, in fact, they were slightly above average. It's just that the other parts of the song did so well in comparison to the lyrics.
We absolutely recommend this song for your listening pleasure.
