@ogefashblog

 

I just can’t stop listening to as well as watching this song; otuto (very sweet song). So, I am wondering if it is because of the atmospheric intro? May be! May be not! But one thing is certain, I love the artistes’ expressions;  their soulful expressions made the song interesting to watch.

Kindly take a gander at the lyrics to the song below

LYRICS TO THE SONG “A WHOLE NEW WORLD” BY ZAYN FT ZHAVIA

VERSE 1 (ZAYN)

I can show you the world, Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did you last let your heart decide?
I can open your eyes, take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under, on a magic carpet ride

CHORUS (ZAYN AND ZHAVIA)

A whole new world, a new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us “No” or where to go or say we’re only dreaming
A whole new world, a dazzling place I never knew
But when I’m way up here, it’s crystal clear
That now I’m in a whole new world with you
(Now I’m in a whole new world with you)

 

VERSE 2 (ZHAVIA)

Unbelievable sights, indescribable feeling.
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

CHORUS

A whole new world (Don’t you dare close your eyes)
A hundred thousand things to see (Hold your breath, it gets better)
I’m like a shooting star, I’ve come so far
I can’t go back to where I used to be
A whole new world, with new horizons to pursue
I’ll chase them anywhere, there’s time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

(INTERLUDE- BEATZZ)

CHORUS (ZAYN AND ZHAVIA)

A whole new world (A whole new world), a new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us “No” or where to go or say we are only dreaming
A whole new world (Every turn, a surprise), with new horizons to pursue (Every moment, red-letter)
I’ll chase them anywhere, there’s time to spare. Anywhere uuh uuh uuh (There’s time to spare)
Let me share this whole new world with you

OUTRO

A whole new world (A whole new world)
That’s where we’ll be (That’s where we’ll be)
A thrilling chase (A wondrous place)
For you and meeee

DURATION:  4 MINUTE 2 SECONDS

THE REVIEW

I naturally love this “familiar” tune and I often play it when I am playing RnB’s on my laptopn. So when this new version came out, I quickly jumped on it. I am so feeling this song. Who else is feeling this song? I know you all are, how can you not just feel this song?

If you are yet to feel this song, then you probably closed your ears when playing the song. So my advice would be “Don’t you dare close your ears!”

Lyrically, this is no doubt a love song and I love it. This is what you call dope track. The song has really got me in the mood; if you know what I mean. It is a duet performed by Zayn and Zhavia. Eeyah, their names even start with letter “Z”

Moving on, the song comes in two verses.  The first verse was taken by Zayn while the second verse was taken by Zhavia. The chorus was taken thrice but with a slight difference in some lines.

The song is heart warming and meaningful as it talks about taking one’s significant other around the world and making her see the world from a different perspective that she used to see it. It talks about taking one’s significant other to luxurious places she has never been to before.

The song arrangement: Verse 1 (Zayn), Chorus, Verse 2 (Zhavia), Chorus, Chorus, Outro

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Verse 1, “I can show you the world, Shining, shimmering, splendid” Zayn basically talks about surprising his significant other. He intends taking her to places that are out of the world, luxurious places that she has never been, seen or heard about; he intends leaving her in awe. He intends showing her how much he values her.

In the 1st chorus, “A  whole new world” the artiste describes the “new world” he wants to show his significant other as a place different from other places she used to know. He wants her to see the world in a different perspective from how she used to see it. He intends taking her to luxurious places where there would be no interfere in their love life. A place where nobody would criticize their relationship or tell them it is impossible.

In the 2nd Chorus “A whole new world, a hundred thousand things to see” the artiste basically emphasizes how much amazing and breathtaking things he intends to show her in the new world. Zhavia seeing the beautiful new world also says she can’t ever go back to the previous world cause the new world with him is far better. He assures her that he wants to share it only with her.

In the Verse 2 “Unbelievable sights, indescribable feeling” Zhavia lets us know she is having so much fun in the new world with her significant other. She defines the new world as a place that is incredible and beyond words; difficult to describe. She says that in the new world, there is no limitation to what they can do and they can soar high non-stop to the sky.

WHAT DOES THE SONG “A WHOLE NEW WORLD” BY ZAYN MEAN?

The song “A whole new world” is not relatively a new song. The song has been composed by various artistes. It is a famous soundtrack of popular cartoon “Aladdin” and his princess Jasmine. Zayn brought back memories and great feeling from the cartoon song.

The song is a love song that basically talks about the desire of a guy to take his significant other to a place that is out of the world; show her luxurious places that would leave her in awe; take her to places she has never been to; take her to places where there would be no interference in their love life. He intends to show her how much he loves her.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Shining/Shimmering: Reflecting light, Sparkly, Glittering; Splendid

Soaring: Ascending, rising aloft; Tumbling: Fall over; Freewheeling: To spin after detachment, hands-off

COSTUME

Costumely. I love Zhavia’s look, she was looking like a princess.

LOCATION

The video was shot in America. It is an outdoor shoot.

SOUND

Very melodious! Very melodious! I just had to repeat that to emphasize how melodious the song is. I love their vocals, so rich and soulful.  Terrific vocal Zayn and Zhavia have got there. It is a slow tempo song. The major instruments used were the piano and guitar. Their high pitch was moderate, it was neither too high nor flat. Great tune!

VIDEO PRODUCTION

Very interesting visuals to watch! Great cinematography. However, I was expecting to see both Zhavia and Zayn come together, but that did not happen even at the end of the video. The video also complements the tack. From the video we can tell that the place is indeed shimmering. I love their expressions too; they really helped interpret the song.
