WHAT IS THE SONG “WHAT TYPE OF DANCE “ ABOUT

Were dance is a Yoruba word that means Mad dance

However, in the context of this song, it means the seductive dance moves ladies do that turns a man on. It may also possibly mean an abnormal dance.

Lyrically: The song comes in three verses taken by Mayorkun, Naira Marley and Zlatan respectively. The chorus was taken thrice mostly by Mayorkun; Zlatan did some adlib. The lyrics have sexual undertones. However Mayorkun’s lyrics were moderate, he basically sang about how much he earns per show, turning up and hooking up with a lady every Friday night. The king of vulgar lyrics “Naira Marley” talked about a lady’s dance style which according to him is turning him on, and makes him desire to have her sexually every Friday night. Lastly, Zlatan is all about the Zancu dance, and the need for people to move their body. His lyrics were coming out modest until he added the last line of his verse which has a sexual undertone. The artiste sang in pidgin and Yoruba; a Nigerian Language.

Vocal: Their vocals were clear, and they were consistent with their vocal quality…

Melody: The beat is solid. It is a fast-tempo beat. There was consistency in the style of rhythm. The major instruments used to compose this song include drum and piano.

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