Most of us can agree that the first days of a relationship represent the idyll of being in love—almost as though everything is set in a cliché romantic comedy. More often than not, however, reality hits, and it takes some dedication to keep the initial preciousness going.
On his latest single, “Young Love”, Adekunle Gold captures the feeling of being intoxicated by the honeymoon phase, balancing his sentimentality with the acknowledgement of a potentially topsy-turvy future.
“I know this is young love, feel like a lifetime/although this young love, don’t ever leave my side”, he passionately sings , addressing his heartfelt set to his love interest with controlled optimism. Sunny piano chirps, syncopated horn riff and EDM bass synths form a slick and boisterous bed, further enlivening Adekunle Gold’s pining performance. With lyrics evoking the aura of a two-way commitment, “Young Love” is the type of record you’d expect to hear on wedding playlists in coming months.
