(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW:  NOBODY BY DJ NEPTUNE FT MR. EAZI AND JOE BOY “HERE IS THE MEANING OF THIS SONG” +I THOUGHT THE TITLE OF THIS SONG WAS TOYIN TOMATO BUT…

IG @ogefashblog.

So, the song “Toyin tomato,” sorry, I mean “Nobody” stylishly got into the catalog of songs to be reviewed on “Ogefash Photo Blog” when one of my neighbors kept playing the song nonstop. I however noticed that that he was always extremely loud when he got to the part Joeboy sang “Toyin tomato.” So, I felt that was the title of the song.

I went on YouTube and started searching for the song Toyin Tomato. The song popped up but with the original title “Nobody.” Perhaps, a lot of people already have the video saved with the title “Toyin tomato.” Are you one of such people? Share with us…

WHAT IS THE SONG NOBODY BY DJ NEPTUNE FT JOEBOY ANDR.EAZI ABOUT?

Another word for nobody is no one, no person or nothing.

The song “Nobody” is a love song; more of possessive love. In the song, a guy is unwilling to share his lover with anyone or anything. He shows the desire to have this beautiful lover and her  physique all to himself. He wants to have “All of her” to himself; he wants to have all of her love, time and attention. He shows jealousy whenever he sees her giving something else her love, time and attention.

For instance in the video, we can tell that Joeboy is a jealous lover or extremely possessive of his girlfriend. He shows anger whenever he sees her constantly holding her phone as he thinks it’s some other guy chatting her up. He also feels she is cheating on him.  But when he discovers that it is not another guy, but she is just fascinated about the dance moves of late superstar-Michael Jackson, he quickly looks for ways to be her Michael Jackson. He employed the help of his friends to thrill her with dance moves by the late superstar, just to get “All of her” back to himself. He doesn’t want anything else that is not him to take her time, attention, love; he wants to be the only one doing that.

Lyrically:  The lyrics to this song may be heartwarming, but if you ask me; they were averagely written. The song comes in two verses. Verse 1 was taken by Joeboy while verse 2 was taken by Mr. Eazi. The pre-chorus and chorus was taken twice mostly by Joeboy. Joeboy sang his verse on a moderate pitch; it was neither too high nor low while Mr. Eazi’s pitch was kind of low. He should have raised it a bit; it doesn’t really have to be in the same manner with that of Joeboy. Mr.Eazi’s vocal was kind of flat; so it kind of made that his verse flat. Although, he raised it before he ended the verse.

In all honesty,  after listening to this tune, it is possible for you not to know that Mr. Eazi featured in the song.  I actually didn’t know Mr. Eazi featured in the song until I watched the video. In this song, I think Joeboy has an overpowering vocal;  his vocal was more pronounced  than that of Mr.Eazi.

Nevertheless, their performance was terrific. Their facial expression complemented the theme of the song. They were soulful while singing the lyrics. Mbok, especially Mr. Eazi, there was a part he really got emotional in the song; he must have been thinking about his billionaire girlfriend, Otedola. I go love o..

I love the beat; very melodious. The intro tune is very catchy.  The tune is memorable; especially with the help of the repetitive chorus; “Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody, no”

The rhythm flows perfectly; the artistes were consistent with the style of rhythm. The artistes sang in pidgin but fused with some Yoruba words. The major instruments used to compose the song include drums, piano and guitar.

I love the video also; simple but spectacular. The video complements the track and it is also very interesting to watch. I love DJ Neptune’s dance in the latter part of the song; I think 2 minutes 12 seconds precisely. His dance moves flowed with the beat. Dope!

Take a gander at the lyrics below…
