The energetic amapiano on the Davido- and Focalistic-assisted “WATAWI”, unrepentant acoustics of “you cheated, i cheated too”, and seductive overtones of “come close” meet the tropical themes on the dualistic “samson and delilah” alongside Mayra Andrade.
Best embodying the fusion of sounds and cultures on Sad Romance is the duet with Ronisia, “lose you”, which cocoons French lyrics within its emotive, soprano textures.
