LYRICIST LOUNGE - Spy Candy - Jidenna and Tiwa Savage

                                  Spy Candy _ Jidenna and Tiwa Savage

 Spy Candy by Nigerian-born American singer; Jidenna featuring African Bad Girl; Tiwa Savage came through the lounge with appealing lyrical contents. Spy Candy, off Jidenna’s Boomerang EP is a romantic story arc focusing on the paranoia that often comes with relationship. Produced by Nana Kwabena with a synch-driven beat, the artistes did well to spice the candy.

   The first three lines of the first verse by Jidenna were catchy coupled with his good vocals.

                                     In a hotel with a broken glass

                                     I fell in love with a perfect ass

                                 This kind of love is ain’t built to last

He repeated afterwards ‘you know it’ to let us know the first and second line were really a situation of Spy Candy. He then permitted his love to spy on him by saying:

                                You follow me; I am your spy candy’

 This leads to the chorus which keeps the listener on replay mode.

                                      Everybody wanna follow

                                                Spy candy

                                    You spy on me sometimes

                                       I spy on you sometimes

 Tiwa Savage’s sonorous voice adds bite to the music. The melody is strong and tuneful. Her vocal tone was attractive as she kept the listeners in awe with her story. She revealed the information she had gathered from her Spy Candy.

                                I saw you went home for the holidays

                  With your brand new car and your brand new baby                                                              And that will be your first love since I went away

She explained she couldn’t quit him because of the bonds they had shared. Tiwa’s part was not complete without her rendering the chorus. It was sweet.

                                      We know the same people

                                           It’s hard to see you

                           You cannot hide, you are my spy candy

   Jidenna opened the last verse in emphatic fashion. The verse continued with catchy lyrics to express his thoughts on the relationship.

                        I only travel with you in the virtual, baby

                  You popping up when I don’t even search for you, baby

                   I should prolly (probably) turn off all my alert for you, baby

                                                   But no

The lyrical contents in this lounge were so sweet. No wonder the artistes said:

          ‘’We can’t escape the famous life candy, you are so sweet’’.
