SONIC SOUL!

Finally a new album from Waje. In case you are wondering, this is Waje’s sophomore (second) album and she sure took her time. Better late than never, after all, it takes time to cook something delicious and we really just know that this album will be delicious to our hearing senses.

Positives

It has been ages since we heard an intro like this. In fact, it feels like we have never heard an intro like this in Nigeria. The serene sound of the instrumentals without the overly aggressiveness we are used to hearing in Instrumentals in Nigeria. And Waje's intro vocals? Oh, my days, we always knew Waje was good, but we had forgotten that she was this great. In fact, we were quite dumbfounded. Okay enough gushing, let's move on to the other parts of the song.
Now let us talk about the vocals, let's just come out and say that this is one of the best vocal renditions this year from a Nigerian Musician. Adekunle Gold was not getting left behind at all. We could feel the intensity, authenticity and raw emotions in their voices, especially from Waje. The only thing is we wish Waje's voice was a tad clearer but oh well, that did not take away from her performance
The lyrics of the song is not bad at all. In fact, for a Nigerian song, this earns a glowing review, the lyrics that is. We were able to determine it was a love song as soon as we started listening to the lyrics of the song. No beating around the bush.
The melody of the song is memorable and melodic. It reminded us of those beautiful l blues from the 90s. Want a wonderful feeling it strikes in us.

Bottom Line
 

This is a great love song. When RnB blends with alternative RnB. This is the result. Our fear is because this is not really a mainstream genre in Nigeria like the afrobeat and Afropop, the song may not get the traction and acknowledgement it deserves.
