(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: TAKE IT BY RUDEBOY “RUDEBOY IS…”

IG @ogefashblog

Now Rudeboy is certainly one talented artiste with a vocal that appealsa to the populace. He is a smart musician as well; odi (he is ) very smart. I think he was the one that carried on the smartness of Psquare. What do I mean? If you can recall the Psquare days; there was a particular timing for the release of any of their songs; they don’t just release a song anytime or anyhow. What do I mean? They release songs when there is an upcoming celebration; talk about new year, Christmas, Easter, New months, when “Musicians” are empty of songs  and of course valentine.  This is exactly the path Rudeboy aka Paul Okoye continued and it is really working well for him. What ya think?

Also, I have overtime noticed that Rudeboy and his twin Mr.P have improved in their lyrics; their lyrics are well compsed compared to the ones they wrote during their days as Psquare. And their sound? Still killing like before even though they are doing their separate thing.

Anyway, that’s by the way. So,  as I was watching this song; one “Agbaya o, ala yi ni ti ju” (Shameless elderly person) just came over and played one of the video scenes in a slow motion. What scene you may ask? That scene that the camera focused on Mercy’s ass.

Don’t go nowhere, we have got the full review (Remember how we do our full review on Ogefash blog before) of  the song “Take it” by Rudeboy right after you have taken a gander at the lyrics below…

THE REVIEW

Rudeboy (Paul Okoye) just had to end this “Take it” song in the way he ended it; which goes to show that sex with women is only achieved when money and material things are lavished on them like he did in the video; I strongly disagree with this. This is just another video that portrays women as money lovers. Well, I love money o, but I need to hear from others too; do you think women love money too?

Moving on,like you know, the song take it by “Rudeboy” features Mercy aka #Lamborghini, the winner of the Big Brother Naija (BBN) season 4. But, I don’t really know why her name was not included in the video, abi (or did) she billed Rudeboy too much money. What ya think?

Lyrically, there is no word or particular sentence in the entire song that expands one’s vocabulary but the lyrics are interesting, meaningful and soulful.

The lyrics are however repetitive especially the verse 1 where he was repeating a word two , three or four times.

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the chorus “If you want my money take it; oh baby take it o (If you want my money take it)”
Rudeboy shows his readiness to give his lover (Acted by Mercy) all his money. He vows that she is the only one that he would ever love. He expresses his profound love and commitment to only her. He implores her not to hurt him by leaving him for another man.  He further shows his readiness to do whatever she wishes for right away.

In the pre-chorus “Girl your body, your body; e dey sweet me like honey (Girl, your body sweetens me like honey)” the artiste says his lover’s body is amazing and it would hurt him if she looks elsewhere or meets another man for money when he can easily provide her with all the money she needs. He further says he is not ready to part ways with her.

In verse 1, “Many many; many many, dey break up on a daily daily; daily daily” Rudeboy talks about his readiness to stick with his lover even if people are breaking up with their lovers. He also talks about his readiness to give her money steadily.

In verse 2, “Yeah eh, chop money baby; I’l take care of you (Eat my money; I would take care of you)” the artiste says his lover leaves him breathless. He says he is ready to show how much he loves her by spending his money on her. According to Rudeboy, this his lover has a strong effect on him which he can’t control. His feelings for her are deep. He is ready to take her places and make her feel special every day like she was celebrating her birthday.

In the post chorus, “Girl your body mad o, mad o, mad o (Girl your body is so mad)” Rudeboy  says his lover’s body and beauty are amazing and leaves him breathless.

ABOUT THE SONG/MEANING OF THE SONG “TAKE IT” BY RUDEBOY/PAUL OKOYE

To take something means to receive something. So what exactly is to be received in this song? Money!

This is a love song that talks about the artiste’s love for his woman and his readiness to take care of her “financially” in particular and otherwise.

COSTUME

They were all looking corporately dressed. Beautiful costumes that speak affluence which is the theme of the song.

LOCATION

The video was shot in Nigeria. I don’t really know why they were using dollar do their transaction. The video was shot indoor. They used a boutique and a resort.

SOUND

This song is so melodious. The sound is  well-organized. The intro is catchy and Rudeboy has a very appealing  and persuasive vocal. The song has two verses, the chorus and post chorus were taken four times each while the pre-chorus was taken twice. His vocal syncsso well with the rhythm. The rhythm flows very well and there was consistency in the style of rhythm. The artiste sang basically in Pidgin. The instrumentals are not varied, he sang basically with drums and piano which is typical of most Nigerian songs.

VIDEO

The video is actually interesting to watch. It is good to see Rudeboy move his body again after many years of dodging dance which he and his twin (Peter Okoye aka Mr.P) love to do during their ays as Psquare before he left it for his twin alone. Atleast in this song, he was flexible and not just static and i indeed added to the beauty of the song.

I couldn’t help but notice that his dance steps @ the 2 minutes 26 seconds and 2 minutes 45 seconds of the song. It was kind of similar to his twin’s kind of dance. Away from his moves; the video is of high quality and complements the track. He went on and on spending money on his woman like he sang in the track.

JUST WONDERING

  • The way Mercy did her mouth though when Paul poured out the money from the bag.
  • It is like this our Mercy does not know how to dance, or what ya think?
  • Is Rudeboy missing those days he used to dance? I saw him trying to bring back his dance moves
  • The way Rudeboy’s glasses com dey fall like one over-read professor at the latter part of the song…
