SONIC EXPERIENCE!

One white shoe and one nicker
Gat no house and I gat no car
One black boy from Africa
Gat big dreams wey go take me far

All I wanna do is to make the world smile
And music I dey do is my only substance
And I really got plans to make the world dance eyeh
And make the world dance

Timaya is working on a new EP (Extended Playlist) to be released sometime next week. The EP is going to be titled  Chulo Vibes, Balance, which is the title of this song basically talks about his humble beginnings and how far he has come.

 

 

 

Positives

An interesting instrumental starts the song and progresses well. The instrumentals are quite fascinating as it does sound like one of those indigenous instruments being mixed with the more modern electronic sound.
Timaya is basically talking about how far he has come from his humble beginnings. days in which he had little to nothing. Right now reverse is the case for him, he has lots of money and mansions. Dreams do come true.
The vocals of the song are clear and concise, we had no difficulties listening to what Timaya was singing.
The melody of the song has this dancehall/Ragga feel mixed with highlife (probably only Timaya can give us this kind of sound) and it ended up resulting in a nice and tuneful sound to our ears.

Negatives

While it does seem like Timaya is trying to encourage others with his success story he did not do that directly. In fact, it felt more like he was bragging about his riches than motivating others and that is okay, he is allowed to, he worked hard for them. So really, it is left to you interpret it however and draw some inspiration from it.
Timaya once again litters his video with girls with big behinds, he just manages to always include these in his videos just about everytime.

Bottom Line
 

A nice melody, average lyrics and a nice instrumental to go with it. All in all, it was an average performance from Timaya.
