Positives

The producer made a very simple yet intricately beautiful Afro-pop instrumental. Simple smooth melodies made a simpler percussion sound with a heavy kick and 808 sound that came in after every 4th count. The melody was the most beautiful part of the instrumental and the fact that the kick was accompanied by a sustained bassline. Tawsen came in with the most beautiful baritone vocals you'll hear as he sang the chorus. The chorus was so catchy and interesting and it immediately makes you start the song all over. Then came Oxlade who did his thing as usual. Ox has never failed on a feature and this is no different. His melody choices and vocal cadence/timbre were top notch. Raybekah's verse was the highlight of the record. Her vocals were perfect. Her melody runs were the best you can get. She definitely took the song to a whole new level. To think this is a break-up record. This is one of the best break-up songs to listen to if you want to feel the emotions, but you don't want to get sad. Everyone on the song had the right emotional resonance and attacked the song with the perfect emotion. There was no dull moment on this record.
The overall production was inch-perfect and every part of the song was properly mixed and mastered, especially the back-ups and adlibs.
