Falz’s latest single, “Bon Soir” personifies the saying that if something isn’t broken, you don’t fix it. After the success of “La Fete”, one of the French inspired club hit record from his ’27’ album, Falz is recycling his used pop-rap model for a new single featuring Olu Maintain, the Yahooze star. With tracks like “La Vrai Bhad Guy” also featuring on the album, “Bon Soir” is the third song he’s releasing with a French title in the last few months. And given Afropop’s recent global prominence, it’s hard not to conclude that the name choice is a deliberate marketing ploy.
Sess produces the Afro-trap beat for “Bon Soir”, which builds to a satisfying and fun base drop with techno instrumentals that will fit right into DJ sets in Europe and Africa. Thematically however, Falz’s shows off the depth of his book of pick-up lines, rapping “We Begin to Establish A Rapport/ Body language Yi Gan Lasan”, in his Brother Taju personae to capture raunchy sentiments expressed in clubs.
