FreshL’s Freestyle On Burna Boy’s “Soke” Is More Romantic Than Banky W’s Proposal

Or maybe not

As far as muses go in music creation, love takes first place; It stimulates emotions, makes expressing thoughts easier and is probably the most universal theme relateable to any listener.

This sets a premise for how FreshL re-purposed Burna Boy’s “Soke” instrumental for a sub-romantic freestyle. Orbeat produced the original version for Burna Boy and also gets production credits for FreshL’s freestyle. The DRB rapper changes Burna Boy’s lyrics on the chorus but retains the same rhyme scheme, taking the the opportunity to show off his voice though assisted by vocoda edits. He also gushes over how much he likes his girl, borrowing lines from Frank Ocean’s “Thinking About”.

Usually, rappers struggle to stick to one subject when they freestyle but the short length of the “Soke Freestyle” makes it easy enough for FreshL’s metaphors to stay on topic.
