Mr Eazi has demonstrated super artistical prowess with a lyrical aura and expressiveness on his new project ‘Something Else’ EP.
‘Something Else’ is a sonically directed EP that is pleasing to the ear, and notwithstanding it showed more maturity, confidence, and control. It is somewhat sonorous and bangs at first listen with good production quality.
Mr Eazi understands what a body of work means, which in factual cases some don’t and it still not bad because some artistes are built on album-making mode while some dwell powerfully on singles delivery.
In 2013, Mr Eazi released his debut mixtape project ‘About to Blow‘, four years later he released ‘Life is Eazi, Vol. 1 (Accra to Lagos)’, and released Life is Eazi Vol.2 (Lagos to London) in 2018, he released ‘One Day You’ Will Understand’ just last year and yet we’re talking about another project unlocked.
Now, I’m thrill to highlight the project with singly observations as regards collective rundown.
Something Else EP Tracks Overview:
Track 1: The Don (Intro) Pre-Released
E-Kelly created an inviting space and both connected on a deeper level, the baby-like sound effect sampled at the beginning of the beat highlighted the atmosphere, introducing the feel in the mood kind of vibe.
“Man’a the don and I paid my price
I’m living like I’m in paradise
All of the girls say me sweet and nice
Oya sun gbalaja make I throw tonight”
It introduced a pompously dominated approach which gives the listener confidence and egomania, still a very noticeable character.
“Oya whine am low kole gbowo o (baby o)
To ba wa o ma gbowo o
So fun wo for igboro o
Umm moti gboro o”
The hook created another melodious and slightly ambient tone, tint nimble backup vocal that floats over multiplex beats.
Track 2: Love for You
The Spells-produced track expresses a great declaration of affection with an addictive tune, an infused afro high life sound, the chord reminds me of Runtown’s “Mad Over you” very suiting with mixed Ghana “twi” pidgin language.
Funnily enough but true is that Mr Eazi invented twi lines like ‘E be you‘ ‘Odeyewu‘ ‘Ohemaa‘ and the likes of it in today’s Nigeria afrobeats song
“You know say I gat love for you, I gat love for you
I gat love for you and I no go fuck up, o
You know say I gat love for you, I gat love for you
I gat love for you and I no go fuck up, o”
Track 3: Cherry Feat. Xenia Manasseh
This is an amazingly created piece with assistance from a 23-year-old Kenyan singer Xenia Manasseh.
The Blaq Jerzee‘s produced track got Mr Eazi diversified to express from his soul, fusing it with the Igbo language “Gwa m ịfe ị na-achọ (hmm) Ife gị na-ato m ụtọ” that makes it remarkably good.
Baby girl I want that Cherry Cherry Cherry
I need that Cherry Cherry Cherry
Can I bite that Cherry Cherry Cherry
Squeeze that Cherry Cherry
Track 4: Saudi Arabia
This song is a total vibe, produced by Blaq Jerzee, very danceable, make one want to start dancing, a vibe from start to finish, the pre-chorus sampled Solid Star 2014 hit “My body” featuring Timaya.
I go cherish you, I go treasure you
Everyday I go pamper you
Likey gold and silver wey I find
Likey gold and silver wey I find, oh
For Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia, oh-oh
For Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia, oh-oh (Chai)
Track 5: E Be Mad
This track is produced by Kel P & Jaylon, it has that Sir Victor Uwaifo‘s guitar strings and high-life chords, one of the best-chilled songs on the project.
“E be mad o E be mad
E be mad o E be mad
For the night o For the night
Make you dey my side o for the night
Nne for my life o for my life
I no see your type o for my life
E be mad o E be mad
E be mad o E be mad”
