BORING SUNDAYS? HERE ARE FIVE ANTHEMS TO VIBE TO
Ron Red Lansky
Sundays are chill days; there are for feeling the ocean kiss your feet while walking on the beach, or checking how brown the eyes of your lover are, every moment on a Sunday is cherished, is walking pace; and the music that feeds you needs to be of that same walking pace, the lyrics making a whole lot of sense, the chords changing at the right moments, the vibes feeling just right. Here are five songs you can vibe to on a Sunday:
5. Tiwa Savage – Get it now
The song comes from her latest Sugarcane EP, with a strong and steady rhythm, at a relaxed pace, the love song captures that Sunday vibe, perfect for that palm-tree shade and coconut drink.
4. Brymo – Naked
The introductory and repetitive percussive sounds, make this song have a ritualistic feel, that negro-spiritual space, with a revealing yet deceptive chorus that dives into a different direction. There’s good use of tempo, rhythm, and chord changes in ‘Naked’, enough to spice up your Sunday without making it feel like a Friday.
3. Simi – Take me back
Another percussion-heavy entry, Simi’s soulful voice shines like a sun that comes out after a short-lived rain, featuring her frequent collaborator Adekunle Gold, ‘Take me back’ touches the right spots.
2. mr eazi – free me
If you’re a fan of skin tight you definitely will love Free Me. Filled with signature eazi images like “if a man die by accident, e no mean say we no go drive”, which are part romantic, part comical, ‘Free Me’, has Sunday vibes written all over it.
1 Nonso Amadi – Tonight
Nonso Amadi’s ‘Tonight’ was released in 2015, and two years later, the song is still being aired on radio, being played from the topmost floor of a duplex at ikeja, or amongst thousands of consummables at shoprite, ‘Tonight’ is a fine metaphor for a Sunday chill song, filled with irresistible vibes.
