SONIC TRAINWRECK!

Young John the wicked producer, we have been used to hearing this on songs, most notably Olamide’s songs. I am not sure we are ready for Young John the wicked singer though because he did very little of singing in this song. We really cannot wrap our heads around this song. It was surely not what we expected. We even read other reviews (as short as it may have been) on other music sites and they did not prepare us for this. We got a more generic “Young John produces a smashing Jam”. The only thing we feel like smashing after listening to this harbinger of migraine is our PC. Just take a look at the song below.

Negatives

The song starts like you would expect any generic song to start, only that intro was just not ending. In fact, it extended to the end of the song. We kept on expecting some singing but we did not get that except an occasional "your body like, baby" and what not.
A song with Oshey, baby, nene as the only major line has non-existent lyrics. It was not a written song at all. It felt more like he just went there and he started talking randomly.
We were able to hear him at least throughout the song, I mean who can complain that he was not able to hear the several osheys in the song?
A song with non-existent lyrics is bound to have non-existent melody also, we are not even surprised that such is the case.
Perhaps the only shining light in the whole song was the instrumentals. One of our colleagues suggested he probably did not get any buyer on the beat and he decided to hop unto the song and waste money creating a video for it? We really hope that is the case and we hope this was a flirt that will not lead to any romance down the line. That was how DJ Cuppy started and here we are today having to endure her "music" ( we still love you Cuppy)
The video of the song is even worse because there was nothing of substance in the song to distract us from the many different sizes and shapes of behinds rolling and shaking right in our faces in the club with dollar bills everywhere.

Bottom Line
 

We sincerely hope this was one of those trial things and we get the "wicked producer" and not the "terribly wicked singer".
And if you do want to venture on that path Young John, the least you could do is write some lyrics then feature someone, say even Olamide and give us something, not this non-existent song we have here.
