One of Nigeria’s finest singer, Timi Dakolo, recently released his eleven-track album titled ‘Merry Christmas Darling’. The album features international artists like Emeli Sande, Eric Benet, Kenny G among others. Merry Christmas darling is the first track from the album which featured Emeli Sande. The ‘Merry Christmas Darling’ album is his first project after signing a deal from universal music group subsidiary. Virgin EMI.
Remember when you were little, and when its Christmas, the music played on some local stations every year were western Christmas songs that over time grew on you and you ended up knowing every word, well this is the kind of music Timi decides to give us to celebrate Christmas. The orchestral instrumental with a temp of about 80-88bpm begins with soft piano melodies and Timi vocals alongside different orchestral instruments playing. Emeli Sande's vocals gave it that foreign Christmas vibe effect. The duet, the harmony, and organization of this song is undoubtedly excellent.
Timi definitely took this one far from us, I mean how many people from this part can relate to the words, vocal harmonies and the music in general?
