(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: A WHOLE NEW WORLD BY ZAYN MALIK FT ZHAVIA “WHO ELSE IS FEELING THIS SONG?”

@ogefashblog

 

I just can’t stop listening to as well as watching this song; otuto (very sweet song). So, I am wondering if it is because of the atmospheric intro? May be! May be not! But one thing is certain, I love the artistes’ expressions;  their soulful expressions made the song interesting to watch.

Kindly take a gander at the lyrics to the song below

LYRICS TO THE SONG “A WHOLE NEW WORLD” BY ZAYN FT ZHAVIA

VERSE 1 (ZAYN)

I can show you the world, Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did you last let your heart decide?
I can open your eyes, take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under, on a magic carpet ride

CHORUS (ZAYN AND ZHAVIA)

A whole new world, a new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us “No” or where to go or say we’re only dreaming
A whole new world, a dazzling place I never knew
But when I’m way up here, it’s crystal clear
That now I’m in a whole new world with you
(Now I’m in a whole new world with you)

 

VERSE 2 (ZHAVIA)

Unbelievable sights, indescribable feeling.
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

CHORUS

A whole new world (Don’t you dare close your eyes)
A hundred thousand things to see (Hold your breath, it gets better)
I’m like a shooting star, I’ve come so far
I can’t go back to where I used to be
A whole new world, with new horizons to pursue
I’ll chase them anywhere, there’s time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

(INTERLUDE- BEATZZ)

CHORUS (ZAYN AND ZHAVIA)

A whole new world (A whole new world), a new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us “No” or where to go or say we are only dreaming
A whole new world (Every turn, a surprise), with new horizons to pursue (Every moment, red-letter)
I’ll chase them anywhere, there’s time to spare. Anywhere uuh uuh uuh (There’s time to spare)
Let me share this whole new world with you

OUTRO

A whole new world (A whole new world)
That’s where we’ll be (That’s where we’ll be)
A thrilling chase (A wondrous place)
For you and meeee

DURATION:  4 MINUTE 2 SECONDS

THE REVIEW

I naturally love this “familiar” tune and I often play it when I am playing RnB’s on my laptopn. So when this new version came out, I quickly jumped on it. I am so feeling this song. Who else is feeling this song? I know you all are, how can you not just feel this song?

If you are yet to feel this song, then you probably closed your ears when playing the song. So my advice would be “Don’t you dare close your ears!”

Lyrically, this is no doubt a love song and I love it. This is what you call dope track. The song has really got me in the mood; if you know what I mean. It is a duet performed by Zayn and Zhavia. Eeyah, their names even start with letter “Z”

Moving on, the song comes in two verses.  The first verse was taken by Zayn while the second verse was taken by Zhavia. The chorus was taken thrice but with a slight difference in some lines.

The song is heart warming and meaningful as it talks about taking one’s significant other around the world and making her see the world from a different perspective that she used to see it. It talks about taking one’s significant other to luxurious places she has never been to before.

The song arrangement: Verse 1 (Zayn), Chorus, Verse 2 (Zhavia), Chorus, Chorus, Outro

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Verse 1, “I can show you the world, Shining, shimmering, splendid” Zayn basically talks about surprising his significant other. He intends taking her to places that are out of the world, luxurious places that she has never been, seen or heard about; he intends leaving her in awe. He intends showing her how much he values her.

In the 1st chorus, “A  whole new world” the artiste describes the “new world” he wants to show his significant other as a place different from other places she used to know. He wants her to see the world in a different perspective from how she used to see it. He intends taking her to luxurious places where there would be no interfere in their love life. A place where nobody would criticize their relationship or tell them it is impossible.

In the 2nd Chorus “A whole new world, a hundred thousand things to see” the artiste basically emphasizes how much amazing and breathtaking things he intends to show her in the new world. Zhavia seeing the beautiful new world also says she can’t ever go back to the previous world cause the new world with him is far better. He assures her that he wants to share it only with her.

In the Verse 2 “Unbelievable sights, indescribable feeling” Zhavia lets us know she is having so much fun in the new world with her significant other. She defines the new world as a place that is incredible and beyond words; difficult to describe. She says that in the new world, there is no limitation to what they can do and they can soar high non-stop to the sky.

WHAT DOES THE SONG “A WHOLE NEW WORLD” BY ZAYN MEAN?

The song “A whole new world” is not relatively a new song. The song has been composed by various artistes. It is a famous soundtrack of popular cartoon “Aladdin” and his princess Jasmine. Zayn brought back memories and great feeling from the cartoon song.

The song is a love song that basically talks about the desire of a guy to take his significant other to a place that is out of the world; show her luxurious places that would leave her in awe; take her to places she has never been to; take her to places where there would be no interference in their love life. He intends to show her how much he loves her.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Shining/Shimmering: Reflecting light, Sparkly, Glittering; Splendid

Soaring: Ascending, rising aloft; Tumbling: Fall over; Freewheeling: To spin after detachment, hands-off

COSTUME

Costumely. I love Zhavia’s look, she was looking like a princess.

LOCATION

The video was shot in America. It is an outdoor shoot.

SOUND

Very melodious! Very melodious! I just had to repeat that to emphasize how melodious the song is. I love their vocals, so rich and soulful.  Terrific vocal Zayn and Zhavia have got there. It is a slow tempo song. The major instruments used were the piano and guitar. Their high pitch was moderate, it was neither too high nor flat. Great tune!

VIDEO PRODUCTION

Very interesting visuals to watch! Great cinematography. However, I was expecting to see both Zhavia and Zayn come together, but that did not happen even at the end of the video. The video also complements the tack. From the video we can tell that the place is indeed shimmering. I love their expressions too; they really helped interpret the song.

(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: CROSS ME BY ED SHEERAN FT CHANCE “I DON’T BELIEVE THIS!”

@ogefash

 

 

Jeez! After I watched this video, the first question on my lips is “Is this a girl?” I really can’t believe this, if she is a girl, then she is most like to be a tomboy!

Moving on, there is really no stopping musically for EdSheeran; he has just been churning out great tunes for his fans. “Cross me” is another banger like “I don’t care” ft Justin Bieber and I certainly love the song.

Cross me is really a dope track with dope visual. So, on this note, I would like to say, you better don’t cross Ogefash, else, I may give you 50 write-ups to do in a minute #Winks

DURATION: 3 MINUTES 34 SECONDS

THE REVIEW

Lyrically, the song comes in two verses. The verse 2 (16 lines) is lengthier than the verse 1 (8 lines). The chorus was sung four times, the pre- chorus two times and the hook two times. The lyrics are not properly arranged but the song is meaningful. The song basically talks about how the artistes are overprotective around their loved ones and wouldn’t want anyone or anything to upset her.

The song arrangement: Pre chorus- Verse 1- Hook- Pre chorus- Chorus- Verse 2- Chorus- Hook- Chorus- Chorus/Outro.

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Pre chorus “Anything she needs she can call me,” we can tell that the artiste his ready to provide anything his loved one needs, because she an integral part of his life. He says if anyone upsets her, the person has also upset him as well.

In the verse 1 “And she ain’t messing with no other man” Edsheeranlets us know that his lady is faithful to him. He says their love story is different from others and that he loves his lady more than anyone could. We see the artiste’s willingness and readiness to be faithful to her. This he sang in the line “I don’t wanna runaround.” He warns people to stay off his lady, else they would have him to contend with.

In the hook “You know I stay tripping, am I crazy? Oh no” we can still tell how over protective he is of the one he loves. We see how he follows her closely in a bid to protect her with or without her awareness, so that no one dares to mess around with her.

In the Verse 2 “And she ain’t messing with no other man” Chance vouches about his lady’s faithfulness to him. He tells people that his lady is capable of handling anyone that wants to mess with her. He says she can deal with those that think they have got kung fu skills and are trying to intimidate her, because she is the “Kung fu” herself. He even sounds a warning to his friends that their friendship with him is dependent in the manner they accord respect to his lady. He says while they are trying to accord her some respect, they shouldn’t dare flirt with her.

In the chorus “If you cross her, then you cross me “ the artiste says if anybody upsets his lady, the person has upset him as well. So, he would be standing close to contend with anyone that annoys her. He also talks about his intention to provide all that his lady wants.

WHAD DOES THE SONG “CROSS ME” BY EDSHEERAN MEAN

The word cross has different meanings, but in the context of this song, “croos” means to annoy or upset someone. It can also mean to make someone go mad, so if you make “her” mad, Edsheeran and Chance would be mad at you.

The song “Cross me” by Edsheeran and Chance is about two guys who are willing to stand up for their loved ones whenever anyone tries to disrespect them. The artistes went on to say that anyone that annoys their ladies have equally annoyed them.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Crosskick: A kick pass from one side of the pitch to another; Cross: Angry, Annoyed

Run around: To cheat on someone, to be unfaithful in a relationship, move from one place to the other; Faucet: Tap; HBIC: Head bitch in charge

LOCATION

The video was shot in America,. They used both indoor and outdoor scenes.

SOUND

Well coordinated beat! Interesting vibe. When this song started, I thought the entire song was going to be “rap,” not until I heard the chorus and I had to give kudos to them; rap blended with hip hop. The major instruments used; the drum, piano and guitar made the song interesting to the ears. I love Ed Sheeran’s modulation at the 2 minutes 51 seconds of the song. I love the flow of rhythm. I love their vocals; very appealing

VIDEO PRODUCTION

I love the digital effects; great cinematography! It is an interesting video to watch, a video different from others. This is what you call creative camera works! You can also call it teriffic computer works!

(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: ALL I DO IS CRY BY KIM PETRAS  “AWWW! KIM PETRAS GO REALLY CRY TIRE O!”

@ogefashblog

What Kim Petras sang about in the song “All I do is cry” is what happens to ladies that get themselves emotionally attached to guys. An emotionally attached lady always feels that the guy with her is the “true one person” meant for her and no one else. So because she is already too attached, it becomes very difficult to detach herself from a guy when she is heartbroken. It also happens to guys anway, but I feel the ladies are more on the receiving end.

But then, I totally love the song! But Kim, it is really a waste of time crying for a guy whose mind is made up to quit a relationship. Kim, ndi (those) guys are heart breakers, so don’t let them make you cry for too long. Ehichapu anya mmiri gi (wipe your tears) else you go cry tire gan ni…#Winks

 

Kindly take a gander at the lyrics below

LYRICS TO THE SONG “ALL I DO IS CRY’ BY KIM PETRAS

VERSE 1

I need you more than air. I see you everywhere
Nobody else compares. I don’t go anywhere

Before I close my eyes. I think of all the lies
Can’t go to sleep at night. I’ve tried a million times

CHORUS

All I do is cry about you. I don’t wanna die without you.
Thought that you were the exception. Took a fatal blow to my heart
I just want for you to need me. You’re just gonna keep me bleeding
I don’t wanna die without you
All I do is cry about you

POST CHORUS

Wish I could forget you, like I never met you
Said you wanna break, then you broke my heart
You left me with nothing, I feel like I’m drowning
You just let me down and I don’t know why
Wish that I could say that you’re dead to me
What’s it gonna take to feel alive again?
I feel like I’m breaking, I keep medicating
I just can’t believe that it’s over now

BRIDGE

All I do is cry about you. All I do is cry
You’re always in my head. Feels like I’m living dead
Remember when you said that this would never end?

Before I close my eyes. I think of all the lies
Can’t go to sleep at night. I’ve tried a million times

CHORUS

All I do is cry about you. I don’t wanna die without you
Thought that you were the exception. Took a fatal blow to my heart
I just want for you to need me. You’re just gonna keep me bleeding
I don’t wanna die without you. All I do is cry about you
(All I do is cry about you)

POST CHORUS

Wish I could forget you, like I never met you
Said you wanna break, then you broke my heart
You left me with nothing, I feel like I’m drowning
You just let me down and I don’t know why
Wish that I could say that you’re dead to me
What’s it gonna take to feel alive again?
I feel like I’m breaking, I keep medicating
I just can’t believe that it’s over now

OUTRO

All I do is cry about you
I don’t wanna die without you
I just want for you to need me
You’re just gonna keep me bleeding
I don’t wanna die without you
All I do is cry about you

DURATION: 3 MINUTES 20 SECONDS

THE REVIEW

Lyrically, the song comes in one verse “I need you more than air” The only predominant thing in the song is the chorus and prechorus. The song is meaningful as it talks about an heartbroken lady who is unable to move on with her life as well as forget the guy that had broken her heart.

The song arrangement: Verse 1- Chorus- Post Chorus- Bridge- Chorus- Post Chorus- Outro

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Verse 1  “ I need you more than air” Kim petras talks about how important a guy is to her and how much she wants to be with him even though the guy in question is not interested in her again. She says no one measures up to him.  Even though she tries to do without him, she finds herself yearning for him and having sleepless night because of him. She still wants him back despite the fact that he lied to her and left her afterwards

In the Chorus “All I do is cry about you” the artist emphasizes how much she wants to spend eternity with her lover even though he broke her heart. This she said in the line “I don’t wanna die without you”. She is still attached to him and is yet to let go of the memories about him. Kim wishes the guy would yearn for her like she years for him, but that is not happening and it is indeed killing her.

In the Post Chorus “Wish I could forget you, like I never met you” we can tell that the artiste is trying to forget about the guy and move on with her life, but she is not able to achieve that.  Ever since he ended the relationship with her, her life has been suffocating and empty. She is hoping to get herself back and be lively again so she wont be susceptible anymore and keep getting bruised.

In the Bridge “ All I do is cry about you…You are always in my head” Kim makes us know that the only she is only preoccupied with the memories of her ex-boyfriend and the how he had broken her heart. This of course always leaves her in tears. She says even though she is still moving around it is like she is dead. Her ex-boyfriend had made a vow to her that he would never break her heart, but he did not keep the vow.  She also lets us know that she is suffering from insomnia because she is heartbroken.

WHAT DOES THE SONG “ALL I DO IS CRY” BY KIM PETRAS TALK ABOUT

This is a song about a heartbroken lady finding it difficult to move on with her life. Kim was too emotionally attached to the guy and she is finding it difficult to detach herself after the breakup. The breakup keeps leaving her in tears every now and then. Despite how her ex-boyfriend broke her heart, she still yearns for him and want to be with him.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

No big vocabulary. They are simple words which a primary school child can even understand.

Fatal blow: Deadly hit

SOUND

Melodic! The use of piano, guitar and drums  made the song interesting to the ears. Kim Petras also has an appealing vocal.

VIDEO PRODUCTION

The original video for this song is not out but you can watch the lyric video below

(+LYRICS+ TRANSLATION+ MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: CALL YOU MINE BY CHAINSMOKERS FT BEBE REXHA “GREAT TUNE!”

@ogefashblog

 

The song “Call you mine” by Chainsmokers ft Bebe Rexha is no doubt a love song. It is about two people that used to be deeply in love when they were younger. When they were much younger, they hardly ever left each other’s side. However, as they grew up it seems like they are unacquainted with each other and the feelings are no more there or better still “Hanging”. The lady is not sure if the guy still sets her heart on fire or if she still sets his heart on fire like it was when they were much younger.

To know her stand in the relationship, she puts a question through to the guy to ascertain his feelings for her and know if she can still call him “hers.” However, the guy still has feelings for her and lets her know that he never regretted the day he called her his own. This he said in the line “So I call you mine! Can I call you mine? You said, “I never regretted the day that I called you mine”

Great tune!

 

LYRICS TO CALL YOU MINE BY CHAINSMOKERS FT BEBE REXHA

VERSE 1

Two kids with their hearts on fire; who’s gonna save us now?
When we thought that we couldn’t get higher
Things started looking down
I look at you and you look at me, like nothing but strangers now
Two kids with their hearts on fire; don’t let it burn us out

Think about what you believe in now
Am I someone you cannot live without?
‘Cause I know I don’t wanna live without you, yeah
Come on, let’s turn this all around
Bring it all back to that bar downtown
When you wouldn’t let me walk out on you, yeah

PRE CHORUS

You said, “Hey, what ya doing for the rest of your life?”
And I said, “I don’t even know what I’m doing tonight”
Went from one conversation to your lips on mine
And you said, “I never regretted the day that I called you mine”

CHORUS

So I call you mine! Can I call you mine?
You said, “I never regretted the day that I called you mine”

VERSE 2

Broke kids running through the city, drunk on the subway train
Set free every time you kissed me
We couldn’t feel no pain
You looked at me and I looked at you; like we’d never look away
Broke kids running through the city; don’t let the memory fade

CHORUS

You said, “Hey, what ya doing for the rest of your life?”
And I said, “I don’t even know what I’m doing tonight”
Went from one conversation to your lips on mine
You said, “I never regretted the day that I called you mine”

CHORUS
So I call you mine

Can I call you mine?
And you said, “I never regretted the day that I called you mine”

REPEAT THE LATTER PART OF VERSE 1

Think about what you believe in now
Am I someone you cannot live without?
‘Cause I know I don’t wanna live without you, yeah
Come on, let’s turn this all around
Bring it all back to that bar downtown
When you wouldn’t let me walk out on you, yeah

CHORUS

You said, “Hey, what ya doing for the rest of your life?”
And I said, “I don’t even know what I’m doing tonight”
Went from one conversation to your lips on mine
You said, “I never regretted the day that I called you mine”
So I call you mine
You said, “I never regretted the day that I called you mine”
Can I call you mine?

OUTRO

Can I call you mine?
Can I call you mine?
Can I call you mine?

(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUISC REVIEW: COLD IN LA BY WHY DON’T WE “THESE GUYZ REMIND ME OF BACKSTREET BOYZ”

@ogefashblog

 

 

First of all, these guyz or should I say ”Why don’t we”  band really remind me of the Backstreet Boyz.  They also remind me of Westlife. Who else do they remind you of? Fill me in plizzzzzz #Winks

Moving on, this is the first time any of their songs will be reviewed on Ogefash blog. I have listened to a couple of their songs like “Unbelievable” and “Don’t change; I must confess, they really sound great. Meanwhile, I noticed that one of them really looks like Bruno Mars (You can view his picture below). But that’s a talk for another day.

So I am wondering, why the band name “Why don’t we”, this is actually the first time I am hearing about them; I think they should have been more creative with the “band” name. If no name is popping up for them, then, they they should just use the first letter of their names to form the band name; what ya think.

Enough about the artistes “Why don’t we.” So, let’s talk about the song “Cold in LA”

The song is no doubt a love song. It basically talks about how the artistes so yearn for the presence of a particular lady around them. The artistes implore this lady not to leave them but stay with them because of the warmth her presence provides. This is obvious from the chorus “Don’t walk away, ’cause it’s cold in LA”

Hmmm! Why does it look to me that the band “Why don’t we” need more than her presence to keep them company, perhaps, they also need her body upon their bodies; perfect warmth right?

Now I understand, they probably only need that lady when it is cold in LA so that they can rock each other’s body, that was why they pleaded with her not to leave them #Winks!

Great tune! I love their modulation at the 2 minutes 58 seconds of the song. They have really got rich vocals. Their vocals are very pleasing to the ears. I love the cinematography. The song comes in 2 verses, although verse 1 is lengthier than verse 2. The pre-chorus and chorus were sung three times respectively.

Kindly take a gander at the lyrics below

LYRICS TO COLD IN LA BY WHY DON’T WE

VERSE 1

I’m a little bit shy
I’m a little bit right on time
And I know that you don’t operate the same
Are you feeling alright?
‘Cause I really can’t tell sometimes
I wanna know what’s going on inside your brain
Just come a little bit closer
‘Cause I don’t know if I know you yet
Yeah, there seems to be something new everyday
Why do I really wanna hold you?
Why do I want you so bad?
Yeah, you’re beautiful but something’s in my way

PRE CHORUS

Yeah, we started with a good night
Then it turned to day
Never thought that we would
Ever say the things we say
To each other but we’re
Here, just staring face to face
Why don’t you just stay with me?

CHORUS

Don’t walk away
‘Cause it’s cold in LA
Every time that you leave me behind
Just stay at my place
‘Cause I can tell by the way
You’re looking at me, you’ll be fine

 VERSE 2

Is your body talking?
‘Cause you don’t know what to say
Do you do this often?
Is it all just a game to you
I’m wondering
Never seen this sort of thing
Am I the only one you came to see?

PRE CHORUS

Yeah, we started with a good night
Then it turned to day
Never thought that we would
Ever say the things we say
To each other but we’re
Here, just staring face to face
Why don’t you just stay with me?

CHORUS

Don’t walk away
‘Cause it’s cold in LA
Every time that you leave me behind
Stay at my place
‘Cause I can tell by the way
You’re looking at me, you’ll be fine

Oh oh oh oh oh oh(2x) You’ll be fine either way
Oh oh oh oh oh ohBut I wish you’d stay
No, no, no no! Oh-oh-oh oh oh oh

PRE CHORUS

Yeah, we started with a good night
Then it turned to day
Never thought that we would
Ever say the things we say
To each other but we’re
Here, just staring face to face
Why don’t you just stay with me?

CHORUS/OUTRO

Don’t walk away (Uuh)
‘Cause it’s cold in LA
Every time that you leave me behind
Just stay at my place (Stay at my place, oh)
‘Cause I can tell by the way
You’re looking at me, you’ll be fine
You’ll be fine either way

‘Cause it’s cold in LA
Every time that you leave me behind (You’ll be fine either way)

Stay at my place
Cause I can tell by the way (But I wish you’d stay)
You looking at me, you’d be fine

(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: DEEP BY JULIA MICHAELS “FIRST AMERICAN SONG THAT IS…

@ogefashblog

Wow! Very succinct! This is the kind of songs I love to review, not some songs that end at 7 minutes 11 seconds on this earth #Winks

The song “Deep” by Julia Michaels has been in our catalogue for a while. I almost pushed this song into one of the videos for lyrics and meaning alone, but I really don’t know what happened; I ended up reviewing the entire track.

Before the main review, kindly take a gander at the lyrics below

LYRICS TO THE SONG DEEP BY JULIA MICHAELS

VERSE 1

I’m tryna come up with a systematic approach
To love you and let you go
But you are clouding’ up my judgment every time
You give me chills when you look at me like that
I don’t know how I feel
Nobody, nobody’s deep, deep, deep, deep
Deep, deep, deep

CHORUS

Somebody left me feeling empty
And somebody ripped me at the seams
But you’re bringing back all my feelings
You’re bringing back all of my feelings
I’m deep diving into your emotions
And sometimes, I think I might be broke
But you are bringing back all my feelings
You’re bringing back all of my feelings
And I fucking love, my fucking life

VERSE 2

It’s becoming less
Less about what I know

And more about what I think
I think that I go crazy every time your lips on mine
Oh my fucking God, I wanna change my mind
But oh, you’ve got it in so deep, deep, deep, deep
Deep, deep, deep.

CHORUS            

Somebody left me feeling empty
And somebody ripped me at the seams
But you’re bringing back all my feelings
You’re bringing back all of my feelings
I’m deep diving into your emotions
And sometimes, I think I might be broke
But you are bringing back all my feelings
You’re bringing back all of my feelings
And I fucking love my fucking life

 

 

(INTERLUDE- BEATZ)

Uh, yeah, yeah

OUTRO

Shy away from ya, I can’t
Put your love down, I can’t and I won’t
Can’t you see it from where you stand?
That you know, that you know, I love you

Shy away from ya, I can’t (Shy away)
Put your love down, I can’t and I won’t
Can’t you see it from where you stand? (Shy away)
That you know, that you know, I love you

Ah, ah, ah ah ah
Ah, ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah

Ah, ah, ah ah ah
Ah, ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah

THE REVIEW

 I love the vocabulary; i love Julia Michael’s intelligent use of words.

Lyrically, this is one of the few songs in America where I feel the artiste’s vocabulary is not shaky or mixed with slangs. I love the literary terms employed by the artiste. The lyrics to the song “Deep” is indeed deep and detailed . Kudos to Julia Michaaels!

The song comes in two verses that are heartwarming, deep and meaningful. The song talks about a lady (Julia) who was badly hurt from her past relationship. She was left depressed and did not want to go into another relationship for keeps but she however found herself falling so deeply in love with a new guy who managed to help her forget as well heal her emotional pains and past hurts.

The verses have the same 7 stanzas. The lyrics are in array. The chorus was sung twice.

The song arrangement: Verse 1- Chorus- Verse 2- Chorus- Outro

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Verse 1 “I’m tryna come up with a systematic approach”  Julia is looking for the most efficient method to do away with a new lover but all efforts proved abortive as she realized that she has fallen deeply in love with him. This she sang in the first line “I’m tryna come up with a systematic approach…”

We can tell that Julia’s new lover has some effects on her. the love she has for him is so strong. “I think that I go crazy every time your lips on mine”.

In the chorus “Somebody left me feeling empty”  Julia makes us realize that she is depressed and feeling meaningless because her ex-boyfriend  jilted her. Her new lover shows her love in such a way that she starts forgetting about the hurts in the past relationship. This gives her joy, although, she tries to examine the guy’s feelings for her to find out if his feelings for her are true or not. In her observation, she notices that he has been able to re- awake the feelings which she thought were dead and she is loving it!

In the Verse 2 “ It is becoming less” the artiste lets us know that she is allowing the new found love to be about them rather than self. She is now emotionally attached to the new lover, and even though she wants to change her mind about him, she finds herself falling deeply in love with him.

In the Outro, “Shy away from ya, I can’t”  Julia makes us realize that she can’t avoid or turn down her new lover because she is far too much in love with him.

WHAT DOES THE SONG “DEEP” BY JULIA MICHAELS MEAN

This is no doubt a love song. The best way to define the word “Deep” is something that is profound or intense.

The song “Deep” by Julia Michaels is about a lady that tries not to fall in love again in order not to be heart broken again.  However, she meets a new guy that makes her fall in love again.

Or better still,

The song is about a girl who was depressed. She was suffering emotionally because of how her last relationship with a guy ended. So, she decided not to get involved with guys, and if she was going to, she had rather not have them for keeps.  However,  that doesn’t happen as she finds herself falling deeply in love with a new lover who managed to heal her old wounds as well as help her forget past hurts.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

To cloud someone’s judgment: Make one unable to think clearly, confused

Chills:  A feeling of coldness, fears or worry; Ripped at the seams: To  be falling apart, to feel shattered; Deep dive: Indepth search, plunge deeply into something, examine something.
LOCATION

The video was shot in America, it is an indoor shoot

SOUND

The use of piano, shakers, drums and guitar made the song interesting to the ears. The artiste vocal is also convincing.  She sang expressively to the beat. The rhythm also flows well!

VIDEO PRODUCTION

Very simple video! I feel the video could have been better than this.  Those rays of light coming in through the windows were quite blinding, there should have been some form of adjustment.However, the video complements the track as we can see, towards the end of the movie, she  is lively again.

(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: CAN WE PRETEND BY PINK FT CASH CASH “WHAT EXACTLY ARE THEY PRETENDING ABOUT?

IG @ogefashblog

So, I am wondering, what exactly are they pretending about? That they still like each other? Or they have the same preference? I think it is the latter.

 

The song “Can we pretend” is by songstress Pink. The artist featured Cash Cash on the beat. The word “pretend” means to “make believe” or to “make up something that is not true.” Can we pretend is a love song no doubt where the artiste seems to have enjoyed a relationship with a guy when they were much younger perhaps when she was 22. We can tell when she sang “Can we pretend I am 22 today…”

The relationship she reminisced about was much lively, adventurous, fun and it seems like they both wanted the same thing “I remember what we wanted. What we’d never take for granted. How our daddy issues took us to LA”

However, overtime the lovers’ preferences/taste changed. What she likes, he doesn’t like and what he likes she doesn’t like “Can we pretend that we both like the president?
Can we pretend that I really like your shoes? Hell yeah”
Nonethelss, irrespective of the differences in their taste, Pink is not ready to let go of the guy, she had rather stick with him and pretend to like what he likes and hate what he hates.

Great song. The video is not yet out except the lyric video which can be viewed here…

LYRICS TO THE SONG “CAN WE PRETEND” BY PINK FT CASH CASH                      

VERSE 1

I remember conversations
We were dancing up on tables
Taking pictures when we had nowhere to post
You were laughing, I was crying
We were dancing, we were dying
Sometimes I don’t know how we walked away

If I’m honest, what I liked
Were the things we didn’t know
Every morning, every night
I’d be beating down your door
Just to tell you what I’m thinking
But you already know
Screw this, I don’t wanna let it go

CHORUS

So can we pretend that I’m 22 today?
Dancing on the tables with you, oh yeah
Can we pretend that we all end up okay?
I just wanna forget with you, oh yeah
Can we pretend that we both like the president?
Can we pretend that I really like your shoes? Hell yeah
Can we pretend? ‘Cause honestly, reality, it bores me
Let’s pretend, oh, let’s make believe
Can we, can we pretend?

Can we pretend?

VERSE 2

I remember what we wanted
What we’d never take for granted
How our daddy issues took us to LA

If I’m honest, what I miss
Is not knowing what to say
And the feeling of your lips
And it haunts me every day
When you’d tell me what you’re thinking
But I’d already know
Screw this, I don’t wanna let it go
Oh yeah

CHORUS

So can we pretend that I’m 22 today?
Dancing on the tables with you, oh yeah
Can we pretend that we all end up okay?
I just wanna forget with you, oh yeah
Can we pretend that we both like the way it is? Hell yeah
Can we pretend that we like these fake-ass dudes? Oh yeah
Can we pretend? ‘Cause honestly, reality, it bores me
Let’s pretend, oh, let’s make believe
Can we, can we pretend?

Can we pretend?

 

REPEAT VERSE 1 (LATTER PART)

If I’m honest, what I liked
Were the things we didn’t know
Every morning, every night
I’d be beating down your door
Just to tell you what I’m thinking
But you’d already know
Screw this, I don’t wanna let it go

REPEAT CHORUS (LATTER PART)

So can we pretend that we both like the president?
Can we pretend that you like my fake-ass shoes? Oh yeah
Can we pretend? ‘Cause honestly reality, it bores me
Let’s pretend, oh, let’s make believe
Can we, can we pretend?

OUTRO

Can we pretend?
Oh, can we pretend?
Can we? Let’s make believe
Can we (Can we)

Can we pretend? ‘Cause honestly, reality, it bores me
Let’s pretend, oh, let’s make believe
Can we, wan we pretend?
Honestly!

How you living? I’m in Paris in Marc Jacobs, life’s amazing
When she leave you for your best friend; that shit karma

VERSE 2

You don’t even know what you did to me. Tears fall like rain, man
You broke my heart baby, literally; I just can’t take it
Couldn’t eat, sleep for days. Had my mind going four ways
Bottle of Jack half-empty. In and outta bed, sitting in the hallway
You don’t know the tears that I cried. You don’t want to see my dark side
Had my mind going psycho. Hated that you wasted my time
Friends thought I was insane
Almost tatted your name
Ask God to do to you what you did to me. At night when I pray.

I used to do it all for you
I used to give it all to you

CHORUS

So much for the love
Hope she got, hope she got (Hope she got everything I’m not), everything I’m not
Pray to God, pray to God

THE REVIEW

“Every day I hope you’re broken-hearted (Hearted)” is the right set of prayers for those men that love to break women’s hearts #Winks. I love this song lyrically!

Lyrically, the song comes in two verses. The verse two is lengthier than the verse 1. The verse two. The chorus was sung thrice while the bridge was sung twice. This song is properly arranged. The song is meaningful as it talks about the emotional pain Kim is going through after her boyfriend broke her heart.

The song arrangement: Chorus- Verse 1- Bridge- Chorus- Verse 2- Bridge- Outro

 

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the chorus “You made it hurt too much” We can tell that Kim Petras is really suffering from emotional pain; she is wounded emotionally after her boyfriend left her for another lady despite her faithfulness to him and despite how much she showed him love. She wonders if his new lover is better than her. Pained by the break up, she prays to God to also make her ex-boyfriend suffer a heartbreak in the hands of his new lover just like he is making her to suffer.

In the verse 1, “You cut me open” the artiste still talks about the emotional pain she is suffering after her boyfriend said he was not interested in her anymore. She said she longed for his affection but she did not get it. She said her boyfriend would reap the hearbreak he sowed into her life, in essence, whoever he dates would also end up leaving him. This she sang in this line “When she leave you for your best friend; that shit karma.” She however tries to paint a picture of her living fine and happy without him but with another dude;  to show that she has moved on and doesn’t need him.

In the bridge “I used to do it all for you” Kim Petras lets us know that she satisfied her ex-boyfriend in all ways. She did all a woman would do to make a relationship work and keep her man.

In Verse 2 “You don’t even know what you did to me” the artiste emphasizes how she is deeply hurt. She says after her ex-boyfriend left her for another, she cried non-stop, couldn’t eat, began drinking excessively and suffered insomnia which made people think she was going crazy. Kim is sad because the years she wasted years with her ex-boyfriend.

WHAT DOES THE SONG “BROKEN” BY KETRAS MEAN

According to the English dictionary, the word broken means “Split”

Broken in the context of the song talks about the emotional state in which the artiste is in after her boyfriend decided to quit the relationship. We can tell that she is heartbroken as she says she is unable to sleep, eat, but cries often after he left her. It is a song on heartbreak.  The artiste however prays that another lady breaks her ex-boyfriend’s heart just like he broke hers.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Lavish: Extravagant; Karma: A force of law of nature which causes one to reap what one sows

SOUND

Melodic! It is a slow-tempo song. The major instrument used in the song-drums, piano and guitar made the song interesting to the ears.

VIDEO PRODUCTION

 There is no video for the song yet, except the lyric video which can be viewed below

(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: EARTH BY LIL DICKY “WHAT ABOUT YOU S-CK MY BUTT! DID LIL DICKY REALLY SAY  THAT TO THE KID?” +THE ARTISTES AND THE ANIMALS THEY REPRESENTED!

IG@ogefashblog

Now, I certainly love the intro drama of this song; quite captivating. The children got me interested with their dialogues and the song in entirety.

So, at the beginning of the song where Lil Dicky said “What about you sUck my butt” to one of the kids; I was like did he actually say that to the  kid?

Anyway let’s talk about the “Earth” featuring various artistes. The Earth is actually where you, yes you that is viewing this content live, except you are an “#Alien” like Lil Dicky said #Winks

In the song “Earth” by Lil Dicky, the artiste talks about how much he loves the earth and every person and thing living in it. He appreciates the planet “Earth” and everything that lives in the earth; humans, animals, plants and co.  The artiste alongside the various artistes he featured however wishes that those dwelling on the earth don’t mismanage the earth but take proper care of it to avoid anything that will bring about rise in the Earth’s surface temperature or better still Global warming which may lead to exactly what we saw at the beginning of the music video where “millions in California are dealing with the dangers of extreme heat and rapidly spreading wild fire” because of climate change all caused by different pollutants.

So, like I said, Lil Dicky and other artistes called on people to avoid things that will make the earth’s temperature further rise and make it not livable for the people dwelling in it. We need to cool the planet, the hotness di (is) too much

The song is quite lengthy, it lasted for about 7 minutes 11 seconds, but guess what? It may be lengthy but it is very informative. From this music video, I now know the names of some animals I did not know about. Thanks Lil Dicky!

The song “Earth” features vocals from Justin Bieber (Baboon); Ariana Grande (Zebra); Halsey (Lion cub), Zac brown (Cow); Brendon Urie (Pig); Hailee Steinfeld (Fungus); Whiz Khalifa (Skunk); Snoop Dogg (Plant); Kanye West (man);  Kevin Hart (man); Adam Levine (Vulture); Shawn mendes (Rhinos); Charlie Puth (Girafee); Sia (Kangaroo); Miley Cyrus (Elephant); Lil Jon(Clan); Rita Ora (Wolf); Miguel (Squirrel); Katy perry (Pony); Lil Yachty (HPV); Ed Sheeran(Koaola); Leanardo Decaprio (); Meghan Trainor; Joel Embiid; Tory Lanez; Backstreet Boyz; John Legend; Psy; Bad Bunny and Kris Wu

Great cinematography I must confess!
