Olamide has come under our scrutiny in recent times but Green Light is a commendable release
With Carpe Diem dropping next week, Green light sets us up for a tease. It invites us into the world of the Carpe Diem itself, giving us a sight of the many scenes we’re yet to experience.
The beat is a tingling one, sprinkled with delightful piano clicks and a bit of Olamide’s underlying chants.
That delightful entry sets the mood for Olamide.
Green Light’s Story
We’re invited by Olamide into a romantic setting. He’s in a room. With his lady. And he’s in need for some romance. Yet, he waits for a signal.
This girl is the decision maker. With Olamide charged up, already to kickstart the process, he’s held up by the indecision of his lady.
He thus tries to persuade his lady by adoring her, showering her with praises and sweet words.
On Green Light, Olamide assumes the position of most men whenever our love interest tries to decline our moves. We beg, we tell her sweet words, we give her a throwback of the last time it happened.
For sure, there’s no blemish on “Green Light”.
Though, Baddo stans from the days of “Eni Duro” might fault this as it’s far from the spheres of his usual lamba-infused rap delivery.
At the same time, it’s a reminder of what to expect on his album, Carpe Diem.
With Eru, his last single also centering on the topic of love, it hints us of what might form the narrative for this album—love.
To us, Green Light is a commendable release from Olamide.
But what about you?
