Odunsi who is fondly known as The Engine has released yet another track titled ‘Decided’. Odunsi the Engine is at the forefront of a new sound that blends genres into what he calls Afro-fusion. He’s been making music since he was in primary school. Odunsi the Engine has production credits on several songs from a younger generation of Nigerian artists.
The part of the Alte community that makes music is virtually known for making music that does not necessarily conform with the regular sound out there. Odunsi created a surreal Rnb/Soul instrumental with a little bit of funk to keep our groove in check. The chord progression was so amazing with a smooth 808 sound (and 808 are never smooth).
Odunsi shares the stage with Tems on this one, another rising star who stole the show in 2019 with her sophomore effort, Try Me, Odunsi tips the scales to dig deeper in his own words. Decided is true to Odunsi’s authentic mind-roiling sound with mellow synthesized instrumentation that accompanies the duo’s resolve to introspect more while honing in their strengths. This 3-minutes piece would leave you dancing and grooving on your seat.
Tems unique vocals shined on this song. Her voice was energetic and soothing at the same time, making us feel like we could whisper with our mouth wide open. Odunsi also delivered a smooth and touching verse. The lyrical composition was great as he sang about how he has ignored the world (his dad in particular) to search for himself and how he still wants to dig deep.
This is just the song to listen to right now, Lambo Extra recommends.
