Reekado Banks delivers two new love songs, “Easy (Jeje)” and “Kiss Me”

More brain bursting gbedu

It’s been a year since Reekado Banks’ Spotlight debut but the Mavins singer has all but appeared on guest performances and released adjoining videos from the album.

Releasing “Easy (Jeje)” and “Kiss Me”—two love songs—back to back, Reekado Banks shows an understanding of the music scene and the timelessness of the love music. Songs have been written about every topic imaginable, but the best ones—from swooning R&B ballads to contemporary club bangers—have been penned about the ups and downs of being in love.

“Kiss Me” has a mid-tempo bass guitar baseline and piano harmonies produced by Altims. Tin pan drums and horns are layered on top to add slow-dance features to the song that seems destined for couple’s first dance at wedding. Reekado Banks carries on the same dance theme in his lyrics; “Would You Dance One Time/ Baby Dance For Me”. And to further emphasize the party theme, Don Jazzy takes the backup vocals with light hearted and witty metaphors like “My Jamican Gbana/ My Tanzanian Vanessa/ My Nigerian Jollof”.

The second single, “Easy (Jeje)” is pacier than “Kiss Me” though the love theme remains. Altims also gets production credit for the synth harmonies rattling samples and drum riffs. Reekado Banks’ love story however takes a more serious turn as he quizzes his love interest; “Will You Marry Me Even Though I Met You Today”, but not serious enough to derail from the essence of the dance number. Because at the end of the day, he’s just trying to have a good time with his love, “Oya Baby Ko Ma Roll”.

Listen to these two new “gbedu wey dey burst brain”, “Easy (Jeje)” and “Kiss Me” below.
