The lightweight beat Princeton produces for “Jowo” carries all the groovy traditional sounds to make for a dance number people of all ages can get into. Though it’s the type of beat to captivate all the guests at weddings, beneath the sepia-toned, and blissfully nostalgic sound are sharp, biting lyrics from Mr Eazi, celebrating love while throwing shade at those who try to come between him and his lover.
Mr Eazi sings “Girl I Don Tell Your Mama and I Don Tell Your Papa Say if They Don’t Let Me Carry You Go/ Na My Life They Wan Fuck up” over the laid back mix of vintage highlife guitar riffs, piano harmonies, rattling samples and traditional drum riffs. But his romantic intentions rescue his self-absorbed lyrics from serious scrutiny as he rides the breezy instrumentals to perform a song destined for DJ turntables at wedding ceremonies.
