(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW- KNOW YOU BY LADIPOE FT SIMI “THEY SAMPLED MR.P’S WOKIE WOKIE BEAT; REGARDLESS THE SONG IS…

I feel the song “Know you” by Ladipoe ft Simi has the same beat with Mr. P’s 2018 song titled Wokie Wokie which features singer- Nyanda Brasil (View the review here ) The intro beat, in particular, are the same; what y’all think?

If you ask me, I would say they sampled Wokie wokie beat. Regardless, the song is extremely melodious and I am stuck with it, just like I am stuck with my Blockway game #winks.

I really hope they acknowledged the beat owner- Mr. P

WHAT IS THE SONG KNOW YOU BY LADIPOE FT SIMI ABOUT

“Know you” is a love song about two people who are developing feelings for each other but are reluctant to express their feelings because they barely know each other. They hold back the feelings they have for each other even though they want to throw caution to the wind. They want to let go of their fears and fall into each other’s arms. They want to spend quality time together, go places together, share so many things with each other, dialogue, share their daily experience, wear each other’s wears without holding back.

In other to achieve this, one of them, Ladipoe decides to break the ice, by being the first to start a conversation with the lady he desires- Simi. This helps ease the tension between them as well as help them get to know each other better.

Lyrically: The lyrics are heart-warming. The lyrics are well written. The lyrics come in two verses taken by Ladipoe and Simi respectively. The pre-chorus and chorus which started the song were taken thrice and “odi” very melodious. The lyrics flowed well on the beat. The artistes sang in Standard English and pidgin.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Break the Ice: To do or say something to relieve tension or to get the conversation going in a strained situation. To break the stiffness , silence when around strangers or a group to make them more uncomfortable.

Vocal: Appealing! Very interesting to the ears! They were consistent with their vocal quality and did not go off tune.

Melody: This song is so tuneful; I am stuck with it. The instruments are not varied. The major instruments used in the composition of the song include drums and piano. The instrumentals were well arranged and their vocals flowed well with the rhythm.  There was also consistency in the style of rhythm.

As at the time of penning down thoughts on this song, the video has not dropped.

Break the ice or better still we can set it aside
Temporarily my temperature is telling me that
You got me so hot stop
Girl there is no remedy yeah
But you don’t know me well enough to reply
And I don’t really know you that well
It’s funny you have something in your teeth
But would you try to stop me
If I want to take it out
‘Cause you don’t know me properly
Girl I think you love me
But you turn this bad boy into a busybody
I see you’re too busy for me (You are right)

See me see this parole ah

But I don’t really know you that well

Do this life with you
Ride or die for you
But I don’t really know you that well
