SONIC EXPERIENCE!

[Verse 1: Tekno]
Ahn ahn Suzuki no be Jincheng
Jet Li no be Liu Kang
You know me I no dey pretend
From start of the week to the weekend
I no dey hide for corner
Footwork like Pogba
If you get on my don don don
Me I want to get on your don don don
Zaga dat
[Pre-Chorus: Mr Eazi]
Sheep don’t run with lion
Snake don’t swing with monkey
I can’t talk for too long
Got too much gold to try on
Sheep don’t run with lion (Yeah)
Snake don’t swing with monkey
I can’t talk for too long
Got too much gold to try on
[Chorus: Mr Eazi & Yemi Alade]
Jealousy (It’s that jealousy)
Don’t you jealous me (Don’t you jealous me)
That’s that jealousy (Jealousy)
Don’t you jealous me (You do jealousy)
That’s that jealousy (You do jealousy)
Don’t you jealous me (You do jealousy)
That’s that jealousy (That’s that jealousy)
Don’t you come for me (Jealousy)
[Post-Chorus: Mr Eazi]
Baako (Baako), Mienu (Mienu), Yenko (Yenko), Aahbaaa (Aahbaa)
Baako (Baako), Mienu (Mienu), Yenko (Yenko), Aahbaaa (Aahbaa)
Baako (Baako), Mienu (Mienu), Yenko (Yenko), Aahbaaa (Aahbaa)
Baako (Baako), Mienu (Mienu), Yenko (Yenko), Aahbaaa (Aahbaa)
[Verse 2: Yemi Alade]
Oh, Odogwu (Odogwu)
I beg make them talk I go give them the action
I be the grand master (Eh woah)
Salute the commander
Otunba
Oga
Saidi
Chairman
Mansa
Oba

Clear Road
[Pre-Chorus]
Sheep don’t run with lion (Ayy)
Snake don’t swing with monkey (Ayy)
I can’t talk for too long
Got too much gold to try on (Ayy)
Sheep don’t run with lion
Snake don’t swing with monkey (Monkey)
I can’t talk for too long
Got too much gold to try on
[Chorus]
Jealousy (It’s that jealousy)
Don’t you jealous me (Don’t you jealous me)
That’s that jealousy (Jealousy)
Don’t you jealous me (You do jealousy)
That’s that jealousy (You do jealousy)
Don’t you jealous me (You do jealousy)
That’s that jealousy (That’s that jealousy)
Don’t you come for me (Jealousy)
[Post-Chorus]
Baako (Baako), Mienu (Mienu), Yenko (Yenko), Aahbaaa (Aahbaa)
Baako (Baako), Mienu (Mienu), Yenko (Yenko), Aahbaaa (Aahbaa)
Baako (Baako), Mienu (Mienu), Yenko (Yenko), Aahbaaa (Aahbaa)
Baako (Baako), Mienu (Mienu), Yenko (Yenko), Aahbaaa (Aahbaa)

We have not even listened to the other songs on the album and we already feel this song is the weakest link in the song. After eulogising Yemi Alade for her geat lyrics in a recent song, she just had to revert to her old ways. For some reasons, this song rubs off on us in the worst possible ways. The melody just does not do it for us and the lyrics are shoddy. A song that had so much musical talent presence but delivers underwhelmingly! The song features Tekno, Mr Eazi and Yemi Alade and it is titled Don’ Jealous Me.

Positives

"Don't jealous me" starts with someone making a certain sound and then an array of instrumentals playing. The transition to the song was seamless.
The vocals were mostly decent, at least we managed to hear what they were singing.
The song had a lot of Mr Eazi and Ghanaian style of music influence. Mr Eazi seemed like the only one that felt at home while singing.

Negatives

The song is plagued with poor lyrics, non-existent lyrical structure and poor plot development. We had expected something of higher quality from these artistes. Even if Tekno and Yemi Alade failed to produce decent lyrics, let's face it, they are well known for their not so great writing abilities. We had expected Mr Eazi to at least turn-up but he also failed to impress us.
Yemi Alade and Tekno seemed lost in the not so familiar Ghanaian style. perhaps it would have been better for them to have stuck to a sound they were more familiar with. it was more agonising to listen to Yemi Alade, not because she sounded horrible. But just because she could have sounded way better had she been able to sing in her normal Afropop genre.

Bottom Line
 

What should have been a killer song ended up being a song of poor match and blend of sounds.
