It’s a new year and B-Red’s “Connect”, featuring Tiwa Savage has already established itself as an Afro-pop number with a touch of fun to fit perfectly into playlists made about this time of the year. With the drum-heavy baseline typical of Nigerian club songs, B-Red tries to woo a woman he likes with the promise of money, gifts and all that good stuff. Tiwa’s verse doesn’t challenge any of the typical pop music tropes; on the track, she is the woman who notices a man looking at her from across the room and wants to know if he has what she wants.
The video for “Connect” is your average Afropop video; Neon lights, dancers all in a warehouse-like set-up. The song implies he is singing to one woman, but B-red singing with women dancing around him doesn’t exactly convey this narrative.
