REVIEW – StarStudded performance, prolific manufacturing, and the braveness to showcase expertise is the possible aim of this album ’A True Champion:and Rexxie made a residing.
Good for many who do not know: Regxie:: He’s a producer and this album is his debut, second work since he made fame round 2018.
A True Champion album goes from one finish of the spectrum of Nigerian music to the opposite finish (and all the pieces is captured and contained) on this fantastic work by the rising producer named Rexxie.
I’ve not recognized any album in current occasions in Nigeria with so many artists and collaborations like this. Rexxie introduced out the perfect of the perfect to crown her effort and made herself an album value listening to.
You’ll hear songs with: David:, Naira Marley:, Zlatan:, Oxlade:, Purchase:, Bella Shmurda:, and likewise: Sarkodie:, simply to say just a few. Stage 17 (albeit too lengthy) was put collectively as a channel to showcase abilities, sound, and entertain followers .. there isn’t an enormous idea behind the album..manufacturing simply dangerous and good vibration (hopefully, I suppose) to deliver recognition and make historical past to the graphics.
Regxie: the manufacturing capacity is undoubtedly commendable, particularly for the consistency in its signature sound (percussion) however have all of the artists and songs met the expectations? We discover out.
A REAL SAMPLE ALBUM REVIEW:
1. FRENEMIES: Outfitted with Oxlade:
This is without doubt one of the songs to search for on the album. Oxlade put in her emotions and unfold it all around the enemies (who’re a bit pleasant) and In a rhythmic type, she captured the emotion of the sound and introduced magnificence to the Afro-Pop instrumentals. .
The subsequent track is entitled:
2. BOI BOI: With Maintain:
Rather more like a daily Teni track, BOI BOI is a dance report and the crooner “I need to be a billionaire” obtained everybody at college about being good when it got here to managing his enterprise. Manufacturing is flying and Teni has performed what we all the time know the way to do.
3. MOFOTI: With Sarkodie & Naira Marley:
That is an Afro-Highlife album that spans two genres (Afrobeat and Highlife) and has two giants on it. Sarkodie stored the rap circulate going and Naira Marley held the highway along with her intelligent pun. The Rythm guitar is the spotlight of this track although (preserve that in thoughts).
4. BANGER: With Asake:
I can’t deny the vibration of this track. The track is an Afro-Dance album with a perspective. Rexxie’s interpolation of Afrobeat and South Africa Dancehall is a good thought (and one which must be praised). I believe this can have numerous rotation in golf equipment and DJ units in Africa.
5. HOMELAND: With Kida Kudz:
Rexxie’s percussion, lacquered underneath oriental parts (sounds) and Kida Kudz’s macabre vibrations grace this report as one of many album’s few exceptions. The great thing about the track is appreciated on the inventive effort each producer and artist delivered to the bottom and even the track is cool and sounds contemporary: so it’s a superb one.
6. KO POR KE (KPK) Cun Mohbad:
This track has been one for a very long time. The Afro-Dance album has all the time turned the dance flooring. Now followers can get right into a full physique of labor. Rexxie’s capacity to place completely different parts from completely different genres right into a single track may be very outstanding and fairly outstanding on this track.
7. BACK 2 BACK: With Bella Shmurda:
In the identical manner that the road anthem is thought for Bella Shmurda, she gave her detailed life-style on the report, and Rexxie linked effectively with him with one other Afrobeat fusion sound. Not a lot of the track one would anticipate however loyal followers will find it irresistible.
8. BIRTHDAY: With Buju & Moelogo:
It is a good track for the Blissful Belated days to return, each artists have performed their factor and are effectively linked with the collaboration. The Afro-Highlife rhythm is made colourful by the artist, apart from that, it’s not spectacular.
9. BOOTY BOUNCE: That includes Dangerous Boy Timz & Ms. Banks:
The fusion of Afro and Grime parts is a gorgeous artwork. Ms. Banks have all the time given their head the rap circulate behind Huge Dangerous Timz’s Booty Bounce hook. It’s a sung album and can simply discover the admiration of the followers.
10. PASSION: With Peruzzi:
Peruzzi put out the hearth and commissioned the Afro-Pop album. Fairly a special Peruzzi we haven’t heard something of motion like this shortly. So sure it’s a superb collaboration and so they’ve grown the banger with it.
11. ZANKU 2.0: Cun Zlatan:
We speak about dance in its essence as a result of that’s what this track is about. Zlatan referred to as all the present ball on the town and ran throughout Rexxie produced batting as finely as ever. Properly, hopefully, numerous DJs may have this in rotation. Once more Rexxie who interpolates South Africa Rhythm of dancing with Nigeria Afro is commendable.
12. 40 BTC: Cun Seyi Vibes:
Okay, wholesome, it’s not a outstanding manufacturing however Seyi Vibes has paved the way in which by means of a Rexxie Afrobeat manufacturing and has spoken lots of people’s minds (extra like the road calvary for a lot of) so it has a form of relatability to it. nevertheless it doesn’t lag behind different tracks on the album.
13. GINGER ME: With Midas & Zinoleesky:
The love chemistry between the 2 artists is impeccable on this track, the manufacturing is a relaxed Afro-R&B journey that makes you vibrate proper while you enter. And noteworthy are the playful texts interpreted by Zinoleesky … He created the emotion and enriched it with stunning phrases.
14. ALL: With David:
That is one other Afro-R&B album with one of many elite Nigerian artists. The sound additionally has Highlife parts in it and David is his factor (nothing particular from what he’s performed earlier than) however the collaboration went effectively so I assume it is a track that followers can simply be aware of .. the end result of the guitar flowing down the observe is laudable.
15. KPK Remix: Cun Mohbad, Sho Madjozi:
The remix of this track is for present. Rexxie added extra devices to the rhythm and topped it with the presence of South African Sho Madjozi who introduced out the style and made you respect the South African parts within the rhythm.
16. FOR YOU: With Lyta & Emo Grae:
Severely, Rexxie does some particular methods when she has to do it. The fusion of Reggae parts blended with Afrobeat in a candy cruise is pleasantly wonderful. Tune artists have expertise to talk their hearts and join the hearts of their followers. It’s an impressive scope.
17. SAMPLE: Outfitted with T-Traditional & Blanche:
This observe can lead anybody as much as the dance flooring. Though nothing extraordinary for the track, however the dance instrument is vibrant. The track artist took the tempo for a stroll and hopefully it will likely be a kind of songs which are usually performed on the membership by DJs. regardless of the case, it’s a pleasant effort.
Rexxie’s interpolation of various genres and completely different music sounds in Africa was applauded and showcased his ability on the album “A True Champion (ATC:). ”We hope and anticipate that it’s going to deliver extra enhancements in subsequent manufacturing and challenge.
“A True Champion:“As I stated earlier than it’s not a concrete album with a course, a few of the beats are distinctive whereas others are primary (there’s nothing spectacular in them). I believe the artist has given his greatest each within the lyrics being within the performances, they hadn’t performed something higher on their songs.
The draw back is 17 tracks is an excessive amount of and plenty of songs sound like a collaboration out of blue (not effectively deliberate), so, I fell brief on top-chart hits however apart from that, Rexxie didn’t simply showcase. his uniqueness as a producer to attract consideration to, has additionally given followers a superb job that they’ll play all day with nearly the entire style included.
