When you are done listening to it, it sounds almost better than the original “Baddest boy” remix, which leaves you wondering if he should have been on “Baddest boy” remix initially.

He even uses “Baddest boy” cover to announce his incoming album:

“Maybe the album is coming your way”

Thankfully, Oxlade’s “Baddest boy” cover actually focuses on what the song should be about, which is not exactly what Skiibii and Davido did on the remix of “Baddest boy”.

Oxlade’s “Baddest boy” cover is a banger, and it leaves you wishing it is longer. The lyrics are on point, the song mixing and producing is tasteful!

We can’t wait for Oxlade’s forthcoming album!

{Intro}
Baddest boy oo

Escala don dada

Because me I no dey follow anaybody sare
I dey do my things my ways
Maybe the album is coming your way
Make everybody shout halle
Baddest {Out}

Skiibii “Baddest boy” ft Davido Review

The reality is that Skiibii’s “Baddest boy” is not mad enough to be a hit song.It is a nice song. But it doesn’t seem to have that potential.

Meanwhile, with Davido on the new “baddest boy” remix, that might have been the goal.

However, even after this, the song does not look like it has that potential.It will do well on streaming platforms as a result of the collaboration.

But it appears something feels off with the song.

There is a conflict of lyrics between Davido and Skiibi’s lyrics and this affected listeners’ overall impression after listening to the song.

Davido explores the part of how people hate on you for no reason other than your success.

However, on “Baddest boy”, Skiibii seemed to explore the part of being a “Yoruba demon” more. Which is what he did on the original song.

His verse on “Baddest boy” is dope, but the Lyric confusion makes it seem like there is no direction to the song.

It leaves you wondering what being the baddest boy means? Breaking girls’ heart or not being affected by people’s negativity?.

Get this, it sure could have been both. But the symphony is not there to merge any kind of correlation between the lyrics.

It’s almost standalone.

If Davido and Skiibii had reworked the original version of “Baddest boy” to fit a single point of view from both artists, it would have made the song feel specific and more direct.

Apart from this, the mixing and production is nice. Even though the lyrics are diverse, they actually possess some meaning in them.

The only think Skiibii’s “Baddest boy” remix seems to be missing, is a specific direction on the song.
