SONG REVIEW OF ÀLÙBÁRÍKÀ WOMAN BY DAPPYG

 

DJ-Irawo.Com

The intro of Àlùbáríkà Woman rises in an exciting crescendo.

The lyrics of the song are original, coherent, poignant and evocative. 

This musician intelligently tells a simple story with a simple structure.

The song showcases the appreciation of a woman's assistance in one's life, making it culturally and societally relevant in the present and future.

The genre is clearly rhythm and blues performed in the English and Yorùbá languages.

The lead vocal is expressive and captivating with clear pronunciations. 

The response/backup vocals are soulful. However, these lyrics need to be clearer as a listener may not hear the exact words being sung except he or she reads the song lyrics to hear the backup lyrics clearly.   

This probably happened because the responses are wordy even though these lyrics are timely and in sync with the calls. 

However, there is a balance in the volume of the lead and response/backup vocals as the latter does not overshadow the former.

The accompanying musical instruments are subtle and enchanting.

The song structure is innovative with a blend of a memorable pre-hook and hook. The song is performed in the form:

Intro

Verse One

Pre-Hook, which consists of four calls and four responses

Hook

Verse Two

Pre-Hook

Hook

Outro


The melody of the song flows beautifully from start to finish.

The rhythm of the song is regular, cool and lively.

The production, mixing and mastering are excellently done. 

Àlùbáríkà Woman is a song that has a replay value and cuts across age, culture, race, tribe, class, time and profession.

The outro has an appealing and timely decrescendo.

DappyG is a skilful, expressive and promising musician.

I rate this song 8/10.


Musically yours,
