I am certainly going to escape with this tune, not only to my house, but to all houses, offices, markets, music promoters’, Djs’ playlists, media houses; all locations all over the world. I would then deposit the song “Escape” by Akon and Wizkid there to be played every minute.

What! This music is so dope! Good music like this deserves to be played and shared to all in ecstasy, and that’s what I am doing right now.

WHAT IS THE SONG “ESCAPE BY AKON AND WIZKID ALL ABOUT

To “escape” means to vanish, disappear, runoff; basically all the synonyms of escape suit the meaning of “escape” as well as the meaning of the song.

Escape is a love song by Akon and Wizkid to someone they love greatly and can’t live without. These ladies they love are incomparable, rare gems, and have different touch and effect on them compared to other ladies.

The artistes are willing to let go everything just to be with the ladies they love. They are willing to risk everything just to spend the rest of their lives with them. They are willing to run off with their lovers to any place where there would be no interference in their love life.

The artistes say “A home without them is homeless.” They have built an entire life around their lovers; hence, living life without them is meaningless. They have given their lovers the access to their heart; no one else can access it except them.

Lyrically: The lyrics are meaningful, detailed, heartwarming and are in order. I love the use of vocabulary; they are not everyday words, and they would help expand people’s vocabulary. The lyrics come in two verses taken by Wizkid and Akon respectively. The chorus was taken thrice while the pre chorus was taken twice by both artistes. The lyrics flow well on the beat. The artistes sang basically in English; no pidgin, no fusion of any other language.

THE MEANING OF SOME LINES

“You know the keys to my heart, you got it” means that someone knows you better than any other person and can access you anytime; whether in good or bad moods.
“Nobody else really make me feel like you do” means to be unique among others. To have an effect on someone in a way no one has ever done”
“And even if the wheels fall off, we’re riding” means to still be with someone against all odds. To still have a strong relationship despite challenges.

Vocal: The artistes’ have got appealing vocals.  Their vocals are interesting to the ears. Their vocal can build listeners’ interest in this song. They have got clear vocals and there was also consistency in their vocal quality.

Melody: It is very tuneful. Although, it has a similar tune with “Bedroom” a song by Psquare and Akon. What y’all think?

The major instruments used in composing the song include drums, piano and guitar. As at the time of reviewing this song, the video has not yet dropped. I am hoping the artiste drop a video for this song!

Take a gander at the lyrics below…

LYRICS TO ESCAPE BY AKON AND WIZKID

VERSE 1 (WIZKID)

I ain’t gon’ lie
I wanna see you by my side
When I open my eyes, eye-eye-eyes
Girl, you are my type
So together we shine
For the rest of our lives

See, I wanna touch, wanna love your body
You know the key to my heart, you got it
Nobody else really make me feel like you do
Even if the wheels fall off, we’re riding
Buy a house with a beach beside it
It’s not home if you ain’t inside it, it’s true

PRE CHORUS (WIZKID)

I will climb the tallest mountain
I will swim the seven seas
If I could
To be by you
I will fly to any island
I will search the galaxy
Girl, I would
Just to be by you
Oh

CHORUS (WIZKID)

I don’t wanna wait
Let’s do it today, today
We can run away
So far away, escape
I don’t wanna wait
Let’s do it today, today
We can run away
So far away, escape

VERSE 2 (AKON)

So many come
And so many go
No one compares to you, you ooh ooh
You showed me love
Never felt it before
Got me feeling brand new, eh

I wanna touch, wanna love your body
You know the keys to my heart, you got it
Nobody else really make me feel like you do
And even if the wheels fall off, we’re riding
Buy a house with a beach beside it
It ain’t a home if you ain’t inside it, it’s true, see

PRE CHORUS AKON

I will climb the tallest mountain
I will swim the seven seas
If I could
To be by you
I will fly to any island
I will search the galaxy
Girl, I would
Just to be by you
Oh

CHORUS AKON

I don’t wanna wait
Let’s do it today, today
We can run away
So far away, escape
I don’t wanna wait
Let’s do it today, today
We can run away
So far away, escape

BRIDGE WIZKID

Oh, my baby, oh, baby
I would never let you go
You drive me crazy, oh, crazy
Say
Oh, my baby, oh, baby
I would never let you go
You drive me crazy, oh, crazy
Say

We can do it all tonight
Yeah, let’s forget tomorrow
Let’s forget tomorrow, yeah
We can do it all tonight
Yeah, promise me tomorrow
Promise me tomorrow, yeah

 

OUTRO (WIZKID)

I don’t wanna wait
Let’s do it today, today
We can run away
So far away, escape
I don’t wanna wait
Let’s do it today, today
We can run away
So far away, escape

In 2018, she represented Nigeria in the PanAfrican TV reality game show "The Maltavator Challenge" powered by Nigeria's number one malt drink packed full of energy giving vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6;Malta Guinness.
