Wizkid “More Love Less Ego” Album Review: Hits and Misses

Wizkid More Love Less Ego Album Review

Here is a review of More Love Less Ego brought to you by The Scoove Africa

 

 

More Love Less Ego review

Wizkid’s More Love Less Ego thrives on Wizkid’s soulful and impressive delivery combined with his vocals which makes the songs so musical. Meanwhile, the lack of creativity on the album and the absence of diversity in song themes is a far shot from the artistic development expected from Wikzid’s Fifth Studio album.

Wizkid is a legend in music, but even legends have to remind us why they are greats, and More Love Less Ego doesn’t mark any change or departure from tracks on Made in Lagos. It might as well be that the songs that didn’t make Made in Lagos were put on More Love Less Ego. Still, there are some nods…

Wizkid More Love Less Ego Album Review 

As an album opener Money and Love provides an insight into what Wizkid’s album will basically be about. The song is actually almost better lyrically than Bad to me, but the fact that it sounds so much better instrumentally is another plus.

Money and Love also sounds like a jam. A real jam that you could listen to in your car just to chill or listen to anywhere for that matter. There are songs that are better than Money and Love, but, based on More Love Less Ego review, that doesn’t take away from the song’s sheer musicality.

On “Balance”, Wizkid comes with impressive lyricism that stands out and we can’t but say that we are enjoying the album already.

The song theme of Balance is definitely not different, but the lyrics are more “not so common”. This song sounds like one of those old R&B 2000s songs with a spice of pop and dancehall. The infuse of “Balance” in the song makes the song a top notch pick on More Love Less Ego review

Bad to me” was received with mixed responses because of the lyricism and the fact that the song was a far shot from what was expected from Wizkid’s first single in a long time.

The song is a cool listen, but it shouldn’t have been the lead single of More Love Less ego based on the album review and the fact that there are definitely better songs on the album that would have promoted the album well.

Track-list

More Love Less Ego album review shows that Wikzid and Ayra Starr definitely came through on 2 Sugar. True, it may not sound like it’s the best track off this album, and we were actually expecting a love/romantic track between them, but the song is awesome nevertheless.

There is no forced delivery or the need to over impress. 2 sugar is an amazing listen!

Everyday” should have been the album opener of More Love Less Ego for obvious reasons. It speaks to the theme more than most of the songs on the album. Nevertheless, by the time this song starts, we are excited that Wizkid has not done a bad job so far.

In fact, the replay value of this album sounds really good because there have been amazing songs so far and the ones that are not amazing are definitely okay listens.

More Love Less Ego album review shows that Everyday is a relatable track that Wikzid is trying to say he understands other people’s pains and challenges and he shares them, understands them and prays for everybody while being grateful for what he has.

Skillibeng should have never opened Slip N Slide. Wizkid could have been a better fit because Skillibeng almost would make you go to the next track.

But we can’t because Shenseea is on this track and like we expected, she delivered.

In fact, More Love Less Ego review implies that Skillibeng should have never made this track because Wizkid and Shenseea alone killed this track and it would have been an amazing listen nevertheless.

Don’t get it wrong, Deep is not a bad song, but we are hoping for a diversity in theme or at least, a little dancehall that could spice the album up.

Deep is an okay song that could actually be a hit. But there is nothing unique about this track at all and the lyrics sound all too familiar.

Flower Pads sounds like what we have been waiting for because of the title of the song. But we hear “Ikebe Super” and we definitely are getting tired of that phrase because everything can’ be about that.

Honestly, you might not want to listen to this track completely based on More Love Less Ego album review, but Wizkid tries to save this track with his interpolations of the words he sprinkles “Baby wraps your leg around me, Girl I go really make you wait”.

Apart from that, Flower Pads could have been made way better and even sounds like what could have been a lead single if it had been better written and better arranged.

This is what we are talking about! 

This song has some glibs that make it sound so catchy. Naira Marley opening Wow makes it sound like a hit already, especially with his soft voice and the way he indicates that he wants to have sexual relations with the lady.

He then interpolates the song with that intro and it’s just perfect throughout the song.

Skepta? He always makes a hit with Wizkid. I mean, there is Bad Energy. Then, his rap on this song is just dope. It complements Naira Marley so much.

Wizkid More Love Less Ego review

Wizkid is the balance between their verses and it blends to make the song sound like a really good listen

Based on Wizkid More Love Less Ego album review, Wow is definitely one of the top 5 tracks.

Pressure” and “Deep Loving” are no-no. They shouldn’t have made More Love Less Ego album, and yes, they make the album sound boring after we hear a hit track like Wow featuring Skepta and Naira Marley.

The instrumentality on Special featuring Don Toliver is the only thing that makes the song special. When you have someone like Don Toliver on a song, you want to make sure that you make the most of it, but Special doesn’t cut it. No, it doesn’t.

More Love Less Ego album review indicates that as an album closer, Frames is not an outstanding track, and it sounds like no particular attention was paid to make it an exceptional track.
