“Retire”, is a mid-tempo bop produced with atmospheric synths, piano harmonies and bass-heavy drum riffs that turn studio sessions into late night drives. Ezi Emela performs an ode to the freedom of being with a love interest that shares a similar passion for weed. While her lyrics, “Everybody Scatter When We Rolling/ We The Baddest Over Here And We Know It”, are too carefree to detail the relationship’s essence, with a voice as compact and emotive as hers, there’s no mistaking the suggestive and romantic undertone.
The guest verse from GB, however, emphasizes the romantic direction, promising that nothing will come between him and his lover. But with the breezy melody and Ezi Emela’s hook, “We No Send, Dem No Like Us/ We Just Here To Inspire/ Where the Green, Where The Lighter?”, “Retire” is a cheery depiction of psychedelic romance.
