Akon announced on the 23rd of April that he has a joint with
Wizkid dropping soon but we didn’t know that it was going to be released so
quickly. The duo make an ecstatic team and create sounds that are such joys to hear.
The collaboration happens to be the second time the two are
joining forces together to churn out an impressive hit track and this one is outrightly
dubbed ‘Escape’. From their collaboration, we can perceive strong chemistry as
the duo are over par with their lyrical phrases.
With the perfectly crafted lyrical lines saliently
dissecting matters foregrounding the unwitting condition of a lockdown observed worldwide today, one will
simply ponder if this isn’t just the best collaboration that have attempted to
capture the glimpse of the moment?
The sensation here is categorically a tale of simple imaginary wishes to run far away with their love interest. This track saw the Starboy in his usual swagger dishing out right dictions and phrases with an undeniable but yet satisfactory imagery attached to the offering. Akon doesn’t disappoint also as he follows through the pace the forerunner already started with, thereby delivering a heavy and yet seductive piece to the pleasure of it’s listeners. The song although seems quite ironic especially by its title- ‘Escape’ as the current downtown all over the world sees individuals on an inevitable lockdown as a result of the looming pandemic and so one can only stop to wonder where the duo would actually want to run to, 😆
