Although his production work on Mayorkun and Kizz Daniel’s “True” is integral in the song’s growing popularity on radio and dance clubs, Young John seems to be on the quest to rule the airwaves and DJ playlists, emphasized with the release of his new single, “Ello Baby”. While pop hits these days often hover around mid-tempo stylings, Young John’s continued success with his pacey style of production has continued to turn out hits, and the combination of Makossa-inspired drums and an intricately plucked Bass guitar riff that characterize “Ello Baby” listens like another potential winner.
To increase the song’s appeal, the producer pairs two of premier Afropop acts, Kizz Daniel and Tiwa Savage for the first time on wax, both of whom deliver romance inclined lyrics inspired by the song’s title. While their sentiments are lightweight, Tiwa and Kizz sound comfortable on the punchy beat, imbuing “Ello Baby” with vigour via their snappy melodies. For its newly released Sesan-directed music video, the trio are captured together performing the song, highlighting their visible chemistry. Shots from solo settings are scattered in as well, with both vocal artists showcasing their dance moves, in tandem with the song’s ebullience.
