2Baba’s widely acclaimed discography shows an artist with the presence of mind to confront both society’s big problems and the everyday struggles of individuals, while also serving up songs meant for the DJ turntables. His last video, “Holy Holy” may have stepped on a few toes with his pseudo-conscious narrative but this time around, he’s going for a lighter touch on his latest offering, “Gaga Shuffle”.
With a title like “Gaga Shuffle”, you can almost picture 2Face bogeying down to some 80’s style funk beat but instead he sings over a mid-tempo Brain On The Mix beat with tin-pan drum and snare drum riffs, piano and synth harmonies and a piano imitating trumpet sound on bridge. The effect is however still the same as 2Face encourages listeners to join him on the groove through his ganja induced metaphors; “As You Get Fire, Light Am Make Them See You”.
Unlimited LA directs the video for “Gaga Shuffle” reflecting the song’s dance emo. The video has a house party set where 2Face’s childhood friend, Larry Gaga features along with several other celebrity cameos like Timaya, AY, P Square and more. Larry Gaga gets credited in the video but he only seems to be making sure 2Face doesn’t forget he’s a married man as the party gets more turnt as the lights dim.
The “Gaga Shuffle” dance looks like an hybrid baby of Galala and Shoki. Watch the video below.
