So, talented Nigerian songstress Yemi Alade has a new song and the reason I am super excited about it is because it’s quite different from her previous releases.
The jam dubbed Remind You has been ruling the airwaves since it came out a few days ago and it’s not really hard to understand why because it’s so infectious.
Basically, this track, which if off Yemi Alade’s Woman Of Steel album, is about a lady who has a huge crush on a guy who turns out to be her boss. I honestly don’t know if that sentence makes any sense.
Remind You is such a beautiful composition. Apart from the fact that it is well-arranged, you have to agree that Yemi Alade’s glorious voice is the reason why many people, including yours truly, have this song on repeat.
Also, like I said earlier he style of singing is quite different from her previous songs in that she’s more subtle and you would even mistake her for a foreign artists were it not for the Yoruba and English pidgin lines in the song.
Notably, the instrumentation on this track is also perfect. I totally love how it blends with Yemi’s style and the tempo of her singing.
The video, which stars none other than celebrated Hollywood actor Djimon Hounsou, is also impeccable and I know the ladies will agree with me. Ahem!
Of course, the scene that caught my attention was when Djimon returned home and found his house maid, played by Yemi Alade, daydreaming about him. That was epic.
