Interestingly, American rapper- Khalid already did a version of the song “Know your worth” with London based English Electronic Music duo- Disclosure. Disclosure are brothers with the names Guy and Howard Lawrence. They were born in the year 1991 and 1994 respectively. Read more about them here… https://m.facebook.com/disclosureuk/about/?ref=page_internal&mt_nav=0

Khalid and Disclosure version was released on the 4th of February 2020. It is one of the tracks in Khalid’s third album. Comparing the original version to the remix, the tune was slightly modified. However, Khalid’s lyrics did not change, although he modified only the third line in his verse 2, which he eventually used as the verse three in the remix. 

So, what version do you prefer? The original? Or the remix? Well, whatever version you prefer, this particular remix has a similar tune with Tiwa Savage’s song titled “If I start to talk” which she feautured Dr.Sid. What y’all think?

WHAT IS THE SON KNOW YOUR WORTH ABOUT

The word “Know your worth” means to recognize one’s importance. It means to value yourself and place yourself high.

This song is a call to ladies to treasure themselves, and not settle for less or stay glued to someone who disparages them in a relationship. It’s a call to ladies not to fix their final destination with a guy that doesn’t treat them well.

The trio advised ladies to stay in a relationship with guys who are selfless, guys that would value them, love them dearly, care about their true feelings, appreciate their abilities and accept their limitations. They advised ladies to stick with someone who is deserving of their love, attention and time, and not someone that takes them for granted.

The artistes also further encouraged women not to give up on love cause there’s that better man out there waiting to connect with them. 

Lyrically: The lyrics are inspiring, meaningful and detailed. The song comes in three verses. Khalid took verse 1 and verse 3 while Tems and Davido took verse 2. The chorus and post chorus were taken twice each by Khalid only, although Tems did the ad-libbing which was quite melodious. The lyrics are well written and inspiring also. Their lyrics also flowed well on the beat. They sang in English. However, Davido fused his lines with pidgin.

MEANING OF SOME LINES

Keep your head up means to stay strong regardless of difficult situations.

Leave you for dead means to abandon a helpless person or thing when they are desperately in need of help and are at the point of giving up.

Put someone first means to consider other people’s needs, affairs, matters or wellbeing  before yours. To be selfeless, to think of other people before yourself

Vocal:  They have appealing vocals that are interesting to the ears. They were expressive. Their vocals are clear too. They were consistent with their vocal quality. They sang melodiously and none went out of tune.

Melody: The beat is melodic. The rhythm flows well. There was also consistency in the style of rhythm.  It is neither a fast tempo song nor a slow tempo song; mid tempo does it. It is however similar to the beat for “If I start to talk” by Tiwa Savage which featured Dr. Sid. The instrumentals are well balanced. The major instruments used to compose this song include drums, shakers, guitar and piano

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

 

LYRICS TO KNOW YOUR WORTH BY KHALID FT DAVIDO AND TEMS


VERSE 1 (KHALID)

He keeps leaving you for dead
I don’t know what you been waiting for
So you’ve got your love locked up instead
But something better is waiting at your door
CHORUS
You don’t know your worth

All the things I know that you deserve
Say it’s not real if it doesn’t hurt
Find someone you know will put you first
Find someone who loves you at your worst

POST CHORUS

Gotta keep, gotta keep, gotta keep your head up
Gotta keep, gotta keep, gotta keep your head up
Gotta keep, gotta keep, gotta keep your head up
Who puts you first?
Find someone who loves you at your worst

VERSE 2 (DAVIDO AND TEM)

DAVIDO

It’s been three years still counting

You in love but still doubting; if he is in love with you

Omoge! I know you got that man

Shey e dey do you well? Shey im dey make you smile? (Does he do you well? Does he make you smile?)

Shey im dey treat you right? And you are happy (Does he treat you right? And you are happy!)

TEMS

You need real, you need love, you need time

And I know that you been gone

You have been down, you have been trying

I know what you are needing

Find yourself a real thing, find yourself a new thing

CHORUS
You don’t know your worth

All the things I know that you deserve
Say it’s not real if it doesn’t hurt (It doesn’t hurt no no no)
Find someone you know will put you first
Find someone who loves you at your worst

POST CHORUS

Gotta keep, gotta keep, gotta keep your head up
Gotta keep, gotta keep, gotta keep your head up
Gotta keep, gotta keep, gotta keep your head up
Who puts you first?
Find someone who loves you at your worst


VERSE 3 (KHALID)

Don’t forget the words I said
Picking you up when you’re feeling down
You keep strong on thoughts left in your head
When you lose hope, soon you will be found

CHORUS
You don’t know your worth

All the things I know that you deserve
Say it’s not real if it doesn’t hurt (It doesn’t hurt no no)
Find someone you know will put you first
Find someone who loves you at your worst

OUTRO

Gotta keep, gotta keep, gotta keep your head up
Find someone who loves you at your worst
