Here is a review of Boy Spyce EP

Boy Spyce EP contains songs that have thoughtful lyrics. It addresses contemporary issues in such a practical way. Even the love songs on Boy Spyce Ep have such unique lyrics that make them sound original. The passionate delivery with which Boy Spyce delivers the EP increases its replay value. It is obvious he doesn’t try to over impress. Indeed, Boy Spyce is the whole-package deal.

There are no bad songs on Boy Spyce Ep. The standout records are ‘Nobody”, “Dreams”, and “Bad things”. 

Boy Spyce may be young, but the amount of wisdom and maturity he displayed with the lyrics on the songs of Boy Spyce Ep, shows that he is a true artist.

Age is not a barrier to being a good singer, and Boy Spyce is proof of that!

 

Here is a track by track review of Boy Spyce Ep

 

{Review}: Rema’s “Rave and Roses” album shows artistic evolution, but…

Dreams

On dreams, Boy Spyce exemplifies that people have different dreams, and that no one should force anyone to be what they don’t want to.

There are some that education suits well and they know that the best way for them to make it in life is through education.

Boy Spyce makes an example with himself by saying he knows how to sing and write songs, and he is not overwhelmed by what other people are saying.

He didn’t go to university because he knows what he wants and he went after it.

Meanwhile, he doesn’t disparage other people’s dreams but emphasize that people should chase their dreams without getting influenced by other people or copying them just because it is the norm.

Too many times, we have been influenced by what the norm is supposed to be and not what we should make of our life.

There are things we should pay attention to and that is our dreams.

Boy Spyce uses lyrics that shows that he doesn’t stand on the fence when it comes to chasing one’s dreams. Go for what you want, and that is what is important.

Boy Spyce also show with dreams that people should support each other’s dreams. He shows this by asking his friend to call him when he gets to his destination.

Bad Things

Bad things is the most illustrative song on Boy Spyce Ep yet.

He describes how he wants to be with the lady he has over. Boy Spyce delivers such descriptive lyrics on Bad things that it becomes impossible not to imagine these things.

Boy Spyce says that he wants the lady so much and he wants to “chop her like wafer

Bad things is accompanied with such lyrics that do not show men’s crude desires, rather, Boy Spyce makes Bad things sound like these things are inviting even though they are bad things.

Boy Spyce makes those “Bad things” sound like they are actually good things.

It doesn’t sound bad at all. Of course, these things are sexual. But he presents it in such a way that makes it sounds like the lady wants the bad things he wants to do to her.

Boy Spyce sounds so persuasive with Bad things. Kudos to Boy Spyce on this record.

Wayo

First, the mixing and production on Wayo is sizzling.

It is applauding that, because Wayo is the second romantic song on Boy Spyce Ep, and it is immediately followed by Bad Things, which is the second song off Boy Spyce’ EP.

Wayo doesn’t have similar lyrics to Bad things, and this is commendable, Boy Spyce did well on this.

Wayo has that raw afro beats lyrics and beats that makes him sound like he is a pure afro beat artist, which is in fact who he is.

Wayo is reminiscent of a polished Afrobeats ‘90s song. The chorus of:

“So baby no go do me

No wayo wayo”

Wayo means to deceive someone, and Boy Spyce pleads with his love interest not to deceive him.

The glibs that Boy Spyce uses on Wayo even make the song sound better because the song is well embedded with suitable lyrics.

Boy Spyce did well on this track, because Wayo is supposed to be the least powerful track on Boy Spyce Ep.

Meanwhile, Boy Spyce seemed to invest a lot of passionate delivery on this track which even makes it a potential hit.

 

Destiny

Destiny is the second song off Boy Spyce Ep that is not a romantic song.

Boy Spyce shows an amount of maturity on each of the tracks on Boy Spyce EP and this is applauding.

Destiny is a sermonic song on which Boy Spyce enjoins people to actually put in the work rather than hoping grace comes to save them.

Destiny is the least powerful song on Boy Spyce Ep, but it is so didactic that its relatability makes it have a high replay value.

Boy Spyce doesn’t mince words in telling his listeners that they should work had because “destiny no go come meet you for house”– which is in fact, very true.

It is very amusing that he puts the funny comedic voice at the end.

This is indicative of someone that is lazy and still doesn’t know what they want.

Most likely, it is the inspiration behind the song.

Destiny has that old-highlife sound that makes it sound more interesting.

Boy Spyce may be young, but he spills the truth with such clarity and wise words.

Boy Spyce insists that hard work does bring success and people should pay attention to this rather than banking on grace and leisure.

 

Nobody

After Bad things, nobody has the highest replay value.

One may wonder why it came last.

But then, it was probably to make listeners listen to Boy Spyce EP again.

Nobody has the catchiest chorus ever and this makes it such an amazing song.

It’s the catchy chorus that Boy Spyce puts on Nobody that makes it a song that stands out on Boy Spyce Ep.

Nobody is a song that can be played at weddings.

It is the perfect song. It has the best lyrics.

Boy Spyce puts a lot into this track. He sounds so real on this track and the truth in his voice makes Nobody a track that listeners will listen to most on the Boy Spyce EP.

Imagine when he says:

“Love won’t work if your heart doesn’t beat”
