Listen to rapper Splash on new single, “I’m Done”

first a single, then an album.

It takes a deft hand to constantly reinvent their sounds, matching the fickle attention of audiences, genre by genre.  But it takes an old hand to know that a hit song comes, when you capture your reality and market those emotions as sound. Following  Taylor Swift: Reputation, Beyonce: Lemonade, Splash’s breakout single “I’m Done” is selling us more truth.

The title alone, without much ado, reveals the under and overlying message of this song “I’m so done with you”. The Nigerian rapper sings it confidently like one who’s found a way out of a sour relationship. She’s more concerned with starting a new life, eager to leave behind past mistakes “I’m on my way to find a better life out there”. The synths kick in almost immediately as the track opens, letting you get the feel of the end from it’s beginning.

Born Genevieve Ogbuewu, Splash has drawn comparisons with Phyno, with whom she shares a similar dialect and rap technique. Considering she made her debut a few years ago,  Splash may have allowed herself be swept under, in an industry that constantly ushers in new acts but, on the bright side, she’s back-to-basics with the dancefloor-worthy number.
