MUSIC REVIEW

I totally love this song. One thing that cannot be unnoticed is the use of the drums as one of the instrumentals. Its intensity enhanced the beauty of the song and really made it banging.

Lyrically, the song comes in three verses. The verses one and two were taken by Janet Jackson; verse 2 was a repetition of verse 1, while verse three was taken by Daddy Yankee.  Janet Jackson’s verses were pretty concise; just two lines while that of Daddy Yankee’s was 4

They sang the chorus “We are made for now” four times and the-post chorus “Everybody move your body” three times.  It also has a bridge “Love is in the rhythm now.”

The artistes sang mostly in English except the verse 3 where Daddy Yankee sang in Spanish.

The lyrics to the song are uncomplicated, comprehensible and interesting.

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Verse 1 “If you’re living for the moment, don’t stop,” Janet Jackson emboldens those already living for the moment to continue doing that and never quit.  She also says once they have the longing to have a good time, they should go ahead and do so and not hold back. The artiste further says that to live for the moment, one must crush/subdue every blockage just like she did.

In the Chorus “I am made for now, not tomorrow. I am made for now, look around.” the artiste says when you take a gander around her, every day, she is having fun or doing the things that she desires without holding back or pushing them for another day, cause really, no one can promise tomorrow.

In the post-chorus “Everybody move your body, everybody,” the artistes persuade people to dance and make merry.

In the Verse 2 The same with Verse 1

In the Bridge “Love is in the rhythm now, we’re dancing with a whole new feeling,” the artiste says at the moment, the atmosphere is that of love.


WHAT DOES THE SONG “MADE FOR NOW” BY JANET JACKSON FT DADDY YANKEE MEAN?

The song “Made for now” means doing what you strongly desire at the moment without holding back or pushing it to another day. It means rolling a dice to satisfy your immediate desires without worrying about tomorrow.

For instance, it could be an instant spending on something you strongly desire rather than holding back or pushing it to another day which is not certain.

In essence, have fun, do whatever that would make you happy at the moment and don’t hold back. Just like in the video, some people where dancing, some playing cards and so on; that was what was giving them joy at the moment and they didn’t hold back. Live each day like it would be the last not minding the outcome, but don’t be caught doing wrong sha..

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Fill up- To have enough, full, jam packed; Love- Showing affection

For now- Taking an instant action rather than living it for another day

Living in the moment– Live life like there is no tomorrow, satisfying your immediate desires rather than holding back or pushing it to another day.

Arriba la raza, entamos la garza – Up the race, we enter here.

Fuego– Fire;    Uno, dos, tres– one, two, three; Dale– Go ahead or do it.

 LOCATION      

The video was shot outdoor; building tops and streets. It was also shot indoor; art studio. The video was shot in America, in Brooklyn. Brooklyn is in New York City.

SOUND

Simple but melodious! Very interesting to the ears! Janet Jackson was expressive as she sang the vocals. She was consistent with the style of rhythm. Her lyrics flowed well with the beat of the song, and when she took the high notes, she did not go out of tune. The instruments were not varied; however, the drum beat really enhanced the rhythm.

COSTUME

Hmmm! Okay, this their costume “di” serious. Most of them wore casuals especially the guys. There were those on the African prints, while some ladies wore crop tops. For JJ’s costume, at some point she wore gowns (the feathered white gown and other kind of designs) and then switched to casual. So if you ask me, costume wise; I would say costumely and colourful for the major artistes, but for some of the dancers, especially the guys , “Eyes rolling.”

Also the backdrop made the video colorful.

VIDEO PRODUCTION

The video complimented the track. They were all having a good time and living for the moment. Janet Jackson plus all those that featured in the video were very expressive and made the video interesting to watch. They were very vibrant.  Terrific lightning! The usage and choice of backdrops made the video colouful. I love the backdrop idea- well decorated and colorful which made the video colourful as well. Most of those that featured in the video are no doubt Africans.

JUST WONDERING

Why did Janet Jackson do this? What you may ask? Well, nothing in particular o, just pulling your leg!

(+LYRICS) MUSIC REVIEW: IN MY FEELINGS BY DRAKE “I HATE BORING SONGS, THIS IS CERTAINLY…!”

(+LYRICS) MUSIC REVIEW: IN MY FEELINGS BY DRAKE “I HATE BORING SONGS!” WELL, THIS IS CERTAINLY NOT A BORING SONG, ESPECIALLY FOR RAP MUSIC…

 

I really must commend Aubrey Drake Graham’s acting in this video, it was flawless. Did you see his facial expression and the way he exclaimed when he abruptly woke up from his dream? LOL! I kind of found that funny though. I doubt if he is a newbie in acting. Well, there is one way to find out, amma ask Wikipedia, hold on just for a second….

Okay, already did that, he has not featured in any movie yet but he is planning on releasing a short film titled “Please forgive me”. Good to hear that, I really look forward to watching the movie.

Okay, that’s it for the intro, do take a gander at the 32years old Canadian rapper’s lyrics to the song “in my feeling” Enjoy…

They gotta make some choices, they running out of options

MUSIC REVIEW
The song opened with a short drama that lasted for about 2 minutes 7 seconds after which the real song started. It ended  at 5 minutes 23 seconds with another drama which culminated at 7 minutes 59 seconds. The song itself was basically 3 minutes 16 seconds.

In the short drama, the dialogue was basically between Drake’s first girlfriend- Kiki and Drake, though Kiki’s mother joined the dialogue soon. I love the opening scene, Drake has got terrific acting skills. He really put real feelings in the short drama.

The song “In my Feelings” is from his album- scorpion, and this track featured the city girls (JT and Yung Miami). Also, Shiggy a comedian famous for dancing to various songs is the brain behind @theshiggyshow. He initiated a viral dance challenge for the song “In my feelings” which saw a lot of top celebrities like Will Smith take part in the challenge. Shiggy had earlier danced to the song which went viral within few hours on all social media platforms. Shiggy also featured in the video as a dancer as well as a member of the production crew.

DIALOGUE IN THE DRAMA (CAST- DRAKE, KIKI AND KIKI’S MUM)

Drake- Kiki

Kiki- What

Drake– I am saying gal what’s up. I have been texting you all day but you have been ignoring me. I am trying to come to you like a man. I am out here. You see me?

Kiki– You ain’t trying to come to me like a man. And you too old to be on somebody’s frontline acting like this.

Drake– I tell you what, though you look good right now. I would have taken you out tonight to see a movie or something?

Kiki– (Blushes) Whatever

 

 

Drake– Look, I am trying to tell you, that I love you girl; for real

Kiki– You don’t love me

Drake– Yeah, I love you

Kiki– If you love me, then you make them other girls on your phone disappear

Drake– Okay then, so what do you want me to do? What do you want? You want me pass code, you want my phone? Tell me what you want me to do? Common, I will do anything you want…I promise girl

Kiki’s mother disrupts their conversation

Kiki’s mother–  Hello

Kiki– Ma’m

Kiki’s mother– I want you to get your joggers off my walkway. (Facing Kiki, she says “You be quiet Kiki and get yourself away from that window”).

Drake– Yes Ma’m

Kiki’s mother– This is not a pay date movie sir, you are a grown man, carry your ass home

Drake– Okay, you want me to leave or…

Kiki’s Mother– I want you to leave. And don’t forget to go when you leave

Drake– Okay, Yes Ma’m

Kiki’s Mother– Uhun

Drake– (Drake pretends to be leaving but returns after Kiki’s mother is out of sight to continue his conversation with Kiki) Hey

Kiki– What?

Drake– I am saying, look, tomorrow night. I am doing a song, same spot we always at. I wanna see you there, that’s all I am saying

Kiki’s Mother (Sensing he is still around returns again) Now, I know the whole neighborhood heard me, so you ought to have heard me too.

Drake– I am looking for my contact lens

Kiki’s Mother– Excuse me…, good night sir. I am looking at you

Drake– Yes Ma’m, I am looking at you, either one eye, you look great too

 

Lyrically~ Meaningful lyrics though but each line is independent; the lines are not interrelated. The song has two verses and three choruses. 

Hey, did you hear when Kiki’s mother said “Get your joggers off my walk way, and don’t forget to go when you leave?” Funny right?

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the chorus, “Kiki, do you love me? Are you riding?” Drake asks Kiki, KB, Resha and JT if they still have affection for him and will still stay with him or never quit on him. He says that he longs for them and would always be available for them no matter what.

In the Verse 1, “Look, the new me is really still the real me” , the artiste talks about different things. He talks about still being the same person people used to know him as irrespective of his big new status. He also beckons fans  to enjoy his song now cause people are trying their possible best to exterminate him. (So, I am wondering, who are those that want to kill our Drake na?Perhaps people that are in the game with him but have nothing to offer again, so, they are now beefing him. He keeps mentioning haters in his songs, just like God’s plan, which has been reviewed on Ogefash Blog. View here @ https://www.ogefash.reviews) The artiste also talks about taking a lady for shopping and how she shops extravagantly like it is her money or she really worked hard for the money, forgetting that it was someone else who worked assiduously that is actually paying for the shopping. He also makes reference to one of Jlo’s hit song in 2002 titled “Jenny from the block”. Lastly he says a particular lady is different from other girls that he knows.

In the verse 2, “Two bad bitches and we kissing in the way”, the lady says all she needs is his credit card and password.

WHAT  THE SONG “IN MY FEELINGS” BY DRAKE IS ABOUT

In the song “In my feelings,” the artiste basically expresses strong emotions or what he feels for some ladies. He also wants to know if they feel the same way for him before promising to always be available for them.

LOCATION

The video was shot outdoor and indoor, New Orleans.

SOUND

Melodious! Drake was consistent with the style of rhythm. His lyrics flowed well with the lyric. The drum beat also enhanced the rhythm.

Also Drake had clear vocals compared to that of the city girls . I barely heard what the City girls rapped about.

COSTUME

The ladies wore mostly bum shorts, pants and bra, crop tops and tube tops. While the guys were mostly on casual

VIDEO PRODUCTION

The entire video doesn’t reflect the lyrics of the song, except the beginning of the song; the short drama. But there were a lot of energetic dancing. Perhaps, the video was all about the dance.

I love the story concept though!

THE STORY IN THE VIDEO

Drake goes over to see one of his girlfriends- Kiki at her place since she refuses to reply his numerous messages. In order to get her to peep from her window, he throws a light object on the window which gets her attention. When Kiki finally comes out, Drake tells her how much he loves her and wants to be with her and how he would love to take her to the cinema. Kiki tells Drake that if he truly loves her like he claims, he would make other girls disappear from his phone as in he would stop chasing other girls or stop flirting. Drake trying to make Kiki see that he is a different man says he can give her his phone and the passcode for her to see that he is a changed person. While conversing, Kiki’s mum comes out and orders Drake out of their compound and sends her daughter inside. Drake pretends to be leaving  but as soon as he sees the woman go inside, he turns back to Kiki and they continue their conversation. But  Kiki’s mum again comes out and sends him away. Drake pretends to be looking for his contact lens and tells Kiki to meet him at the same spot before taking his leave.

However, it was just a dream, he wakes up and narrates his dream to the guy with him. Moments later, one of the dancers in his dream~ Shiggy shows up and tries to get Drake ready for production. Drake is dazed seeing the same person from his dream.

JUST WONDERING

  • When we would have music videos concentrate on a guy’s butt only and see them twerk all through the song
