Review: Victor AD – Left Pocket (MVP)
Wetin we gain and No idea are still fresh in our heads. The songs were hits to varying degrees. Victor Ad has been rising in rank in the Nigerian Music scene. Soon enough he would be an A – list musician. He just announced the release of his debut EP and it’s already hot on some musical outlets. The EP is titled Red Eye. Going by the theme of the first track on the EP and Wetin We gain, he may be making an allusion to him having red eyes due to his hunger for success. This can be gotten from the expression “I get red-eye” or “my eye dey red”.
You can listen to the audio below
Left Pocket starts with a strong instrumental playing followed by Victor AD's trademark intro.
Left Pocket talks about Victor AD's desires for success and money. The message is clear and concise. The lyrical structure is not bd either. He was able to arrange his ideas in a progressive manner.
The vocals of the song were clear and a good fit for the song. His rendition was just good enough and will not earn him any extra points.
The melody of Left Pocket is the normal Victor AD affair. A blend of Highlife and Afrobeat. it is tuneful but hardly memorable.
We liked the inro beat of the song, the mixing and production are also quite decent The beat had some unique elements in ut but was still plagued with the strong drum bass sound.
The plot development of the song hardly convinced us. For a message of this quality, the potentials for s relatable plot development was quite high but somehow Victor AD managed to disappoint us.
The melody of the song failed to deliver in most of it. Our attention began to wane during the review and we felt mostly uninspiring. It felt like we quickly got bored of the song.
Some beats tend to start similar because of the party themes surrounding them. The strong Drum Bass sound is usually the cause of this. Aside from that no issues with the beat of the song.
