Dave’s recently released album, ‘Pyschodrama’ examines what it means to be black, presenting a stark view for the racial identity to controversial extremes. Though he spends most of his time on the 11-track project, detailing his struggle with depression and how his skin color has shaped his identity, Burna Boy assisted “Location” finds him seeking escape in the arms of beautiful women, high fashion and the breezy ambience of the Afropop beat JAE5 produces.
A somber piano baseline, horns harmonies and whiny vocal samples set a downcast mood for “Location”, but Burna Boy’s melodic hook infuses some festive groove as Dave delivers boastful lyrics, describing the ostentatious lifestyle of a rapper; “Came a Long Way From a Park in the Bends/To an ’18 Plate, Man’s Parking a Benz/Far From the Rest But I’m Far From my Best”.
