WizKid dropped this joint, Baba Nla, last week to the joy of a lot of fans. It had been a minute since he released an official single so the anticipation was high.
The first thing that strikes about this song is the extra smooth beat. Legendury Beatz is really living up to the name with this one, and it might be one of my favorite from the brothers. Once you get past the extra smooth beat, and infectious hook, the lyrics from WizKid are once again watered down, and generic. The same recycled stuff we seem to always get. The number of girls we have, the designers we have, all the things I have. Nothing much else lyrically. If there’s anything different it’s the borrowed line from Beenie Man.
With that said, the overall vibe of the song is very smooth. WizKid is a very talented dude, so you know he’s able to make anything he does sound nice. But is this song a hit? Jury is still out on that, and for me overall I’ll say the song is right on average. It’s not the song I’ll be looking for in 12 months time, but right now I’ll enjoy it while it’s hot.
