The beat Trendz produces for “Killa”, Soft’s new single featuring Yemi Alade, uses mid-tempo synth harmonies, nodding bass and drums to speak to the moment when lovers become one on the dance floor, with their movements matching in fluid harmony. On the track, Soft and Yemi Alade spin a romantic tale, making unrealistic promises to their lovers over a catchy spacious beat with a lean bounce that lends itself exceptionally well to dance.
Singing “If Na To Tiff I Tiff/ If Na To Wound Person/ Baby I Go Kill Person/ Cause You’re My Fantasy/” and later promising that “Girl Mosquito no Go Bite You”, Soft makes it clear that there are no limits he won’t go for his lover. Yemi Alade’s verse shares similar sentiments as she verifies Soft’s over-imaginative words saying, “This Love is Dangerous/ Dem Just Dey Envy Us/ Odo You Dey Do Me Well/ Odo You Dey Make My Head To Swell”.
Paul Gambit directs the video for “Killa”, shot in a colorful neon lit set, where Soft and Yemi Alade perform their verses, accompanied by models and dancers. The two artists engage in a dance off that does not necessitate any declaration of winners, as they are in essence, lovers not competitors.
