SONIC EXPERIENCE!

“Shake it, Shake it, Shake it for me
Shake it, Shake it, Shake it for me
Mo ni ko follow me, ko follow me
Baby follow me ko follow me
Shake it
Shake it, Shake it, Shake it for me
Shake it, Shake it, Shake it for me
Follow me, Mo ni ko follow me
Follow me, Mo ni ko follow me”

Teni decided to do a rather different type of music this time. The song is a rich afrobeat fast-tempo you will likely hear frequently in the club. It is not a bad jam at all.

Positives

The intro of the song has this kind of suspense around it. It got us wondering what was about to come up next. The intro is not bad at all. In fact, we enjoyed every part of it.
"Shake it, shake it.....", we guess that explains what the song is about. The song has no lyrical depth, but then again we were not expecting that for this kind of song. In fact, it would have been quite weird. That is no excuse for horrible lyrics though. However, the lyrics of this song are far from horrible.
The melody of the song is bliss, it got us excited and engaged to the song. It is quite a memorable melody.
We enjoyed the instrumentals of the song, especially the piano. Then the varying drums being played. It was a nice combo and it created a nice rhythm which melted into the melody of the song thereby creatin a nice harmony.

Negatives

As expected from Teni some part of the song was sung in Yoruba, it is no longer a new thing and we do not even think her fans mind one bit.
We were quite surprised to learn that the song did not have a video. We were expecting a video to make the song even more popular. Considering the song is titled shake am, we just imagined a couple of girls shaking their behinds vigorously (#sigh).
