Lyrics: Simi x Adekunle Gold – By You

“I’m scared of falling

But I will fall a thousand miles for you
I’m scared of flying
But in a heartbeat I will count the clouds for you
Halle, Halle, Hallelujah
Èdùmàrè lọ sọ wa pọ
Mo gbeke le è o
O if you ever need to smile
I can be your reason why and your peace of mind
O lẹ gbeke le mi o
You know I go stand by you
I go stand by you
Anything you do
I’ll be right by you
Torí náà kòsì anybody l’ayé
I’d rather spend my life with
Baby mi I go stand by you
Bí iná banjo o
Má pàdà lẹyìn mí baby
In a sea of people I’ve been searching for you
You can rely on me baby
I will make you cry in happiness
Will you forgive me for the happy tears?
Just know I’ll always be right there
Oh Halle, hallelujah ah Simi hallelujah
Èdùmàrè lọ sọ wa pọ
o le gbeke le mí
Oh Halle, hallelujah ah ooh hallelujah
Moti renikeji ti má balo, Moti renikeji
You know I go stand by you, I go stand by you
Anything you do I’ll be right by you
Torí náà kòsì anybody l’ayé
I’d rather spend my life with
Baby mi I go stand by you
Mósè ìlérí kàn ìlérí kàn fún é
I promise I can be whatever you need, you need me to be
And you be the only one I’ll be calling
When I need some loving
I know you got me oo baby
You know I go stand by you
I go stand by you
Anything you do I’ll be right by you
Torí náà kòsì anybody l’ayé
I’d rather spend my life with
Baby mi I go stand by you
You know I go stand by you
I go stand by you
Anything you do I’ll be right by you
You know I go stand by you
I go stand by you
Anything you do I’ll be right by you
kòsì anybody l’ayé
I’d rather spend my life with
Baby mi I’ll be right by you”

Omo Charlie Champagne’s fourth track By You is a love song featuring her husband, Adekunle Gold. We had previously reviewed some songs from the album:

There are a lot of dedications in this album. most notably to her father, Charlie and her husband, Adekunle Gold. This song is dedicated to her husband and well, it almost makes us want to propose to the next “soulmate material” we meet.

Positives

By You starts with some instrumentals playing. It was quite obvious that it was a love song from the beginning. However, it was also reminiscent of Church choir songs.
This is a love song, basically, this was Simi and Adekunle promising to be by each other forever. The love in the song is palpable and at some point, it felt like we just weren't in the same cloud they are.
We had no issues whatsoever with Simi and Adekunle Gold's vocal renditions. While their performances were not groundbreaking, it was a little bit above average and they were expressive.
The melody of the song is a fusion of several genres. From Alternative sound to the popular gospel sound and even Afro-pop in the mix. They were well fused together to give us an interesting sound.

Negatives

The song sounded too ordinary and like a cover of another song, we had listened to a while ago.

Bottom Line
 

If you are already tired of all the lovy dovy between Simi and Adekunle Gold then, by all means, stay away from this song. However, if you are on the same wavelength with them then, by all means, this is a song to enjoy.
