SONIC SOUL!

Omo Charlie Champagne album from Simi has proven to be quite successful. We have so far enjoyed the diverse but yet familiar styles of the songs in the album. This is probably her most diverse work so far. In Immortal, Simi managed to mix up Afropop with a bit of Dancehall and she even managed to mix in her trademark alternative RnB sound into the song. There is no shortage of blends of and influences from other genres of music in this track and that is exactly what makes it interesting.

Positives

Immortal starts like your normal Simi song. She started the song with her more mainstream style of music. In Fact, one would have thought that it was your regular Simi song. You can imagine our surprise when the song transitioned away from the usual Simi style to something more unusual.
The vocal renditions of the song are great and sonorous. We enjoyed Simi's vocals and Maleek Berry did well to compliment her otherwise thin vocals.
The melody of the song sounds great, we liked it, with all the crisscross between genres, it was a rich affair of genres really.
The instrumentals of the song are one of the things that easily gave away the song as a dancehall song. In fact, one can argue that the instrumentals/beat is a spin-off of Rihanna's Work song.

Negatives

At first, when you listen to the song it will seem like it does have a poor plot development. However, this is really not the case with Immortal. Immortal hide under the umbrella of double meanings. It is apparent that Simi is talking about something else and only when you pay attention to that can you see that the plot development is not that bad.

Bottom Line
 

One of the more unique and diverse songs in the Omo Charlie Champagne album. It is great to see Simi stepping out of her comfort zone and trying something new. It was not a bad attempt at all. We recommend this song for your listening pleasures.
