Falz “Bahd” Album review
Review: Falz’s “Bahd” album is a successful experiment of rap and Pop music
Falz Bahd Album review
Falz “Bahd” album is a successful experimentation of rap and pop. Although there are just two song themes on the album, there is a blend of at least three song genres. The result of all this is a birth of a classic Falz The Bahd Guy album since moral instruction. The originality is untouched.
1) Another Me
It has Falz experimenting with both vocals and rap on the same song! This is fire. I mean, Falz is majorly a rapper, and for him to experiment with singing on a song, then it’s a huge step that even makes sense because it sounds so good.
The vocals on the song are as authentic as any male singer can sing and it highly exemplifies the theme- that there truly cannot be another Falz D Bahd Guy!
Another me is a good album opener for Falz. It is short and resilient.
2) “All Night”
It has that sexy, romantic, yet very fresh and original vibe that makes a good Afrobeats song. It has the beauty of what makes a true romantic song and it is actually devoid of all the extras of what does not need to be in a romantic tune.
The chorus/hook of All Night is what makes the song very memorable. What’s more? It’s nice that it came second on the track. But it shouldn’t have been as long as it was. The glibs at the end was unnecessary
3) Beautiful Sunflower ft. Tiwa Savage
We know that Tiwa Savage is more RnB than Afrobeats, but she should have been featured on All Night and not Beautiful Sunflower.
The moment Falz starts this, we know that it doesn’t have the potential of being a hit single. All night has that potential to be that hit song with the right collaboration.
Unfortunately, this is not the song you have Tiwa Savage on if you want it to blow. Don’t get it wrong. She absolutely tried on the track, but even the delivery and song arrangement of Beautiful Sunflower is not as dope as it should have been.
Parampe sounds like something Burna Boy would sing and it would really become a hit song. But with Falz on this song, we are trying to see how it connects to the songs we’ve been listening to since the album began.
It seems like Parampe is taking us on another path that we didn’t see coming. Parampe is a good track, but it divides the album at a point and it takes another direction until Knee Down takes us back.
5) Knee down ft. Chike
Good call allowing Chike to start this song. The hook is crazy! It’s what makes this song a bop. By the time Falz the Bahd Guy takes over, he sounds like Ladipoe on Mavin’s Overdose.
This song has a really good replay value because Falz didn’t just sing on it, he rapped and blended this song as well as he could.
Really, Knee Down is an amazing song. It has everything. Kudos to Chike and Falz on this song. It is a love song, but you almost cannot tell because it was discussed so subtly, yet so maturely.
6) Pull Up
“Pull Up” is that song that every male artiste has on their album because they just must have a song that adulates a lady’s body because ever male artiste must be thinking of that all the time, and if they don’t have that kind of song, then their album is not as “interesting” as it should be.
Not saying they shouldn’t sing songs about lady-obsession, but “Pull Up” is too obvious a song. Besides, Falz is supposed to rap this song because that is what could have made it a really good listen like “Ice-cream”
Now, that is what I’m talking about! This is what Falz could have done on Pull up. “Gentleman” is the perfect love song. Especially the way Falz started the song.
It sounded original, like something Falz would start recording without even writing; especially that part where he paused and said “I’ll like to be your gentleman”.
The fact that he raps at the end is what makes “Gentleman” the best song so far on Bahd album apart from “All Night”. However, this song needed a female collaboration to make it sound more interesting, but it sounds cool anyway.
8) Woman ft. The Cavemen
We get that having The Cavemen on your album means that you love their sound or you know that people love their song, it now seems like featuring them on your album is a must. But still, let’s give Falz and The Cavemen a 60% on this song.
It actually creates some visual images and the Cavemen don’t try to over deliver. It actually sounds cool till the end.
9) Tender Love
Tender Love sounded like a song that was added to Bahd album because it was recorded, but it doesn’t add to making this album phenomenal. It only lengthens the album. The song should have been a bonus track
10) Inside Falz ft. Timaya, Boy Spyce
Inside should have come before Tender love. Timaya delivered on his track, but it would have been so much better if Boy Spyce was the only one on this track.
He would have made the song more of a potential hit because his verse was far better than Timaya’s own. Even his glibs are on fire!
11) Roger Milla
It sounds like someone was added to this track and the person’s name was not mentioned, but Falz delivered a madness on this track.
Roger Milla was made as just another song on Bahd Album, but the song arrangement should have been better and it could have come before most songs on the album.
12) Ice Cream ft. BNXN
What a wonderful way to end Bahd Album!
This song is next after “All Night”, and “Gentlemen”. It’s such a classic, and it makes you want to listen to Bahd Album again. Asides “Gentlemen”, “Ice Cream” has the next amazing “Falz-killer” rap skills.
