Here is a review of Outlaw EP by Victony
Victony Outlaw EP Review
With Outlaw, Victony shows that music can indeed be therapeutic. Following his accident, Victony uses Outlaw as a symbol of his victory over the challenges he faced. He is an “Outlaw” because he doesn’t believe in the status quo of things people used to.
Victony’s Outlaw EP also registers the fact that he still loves romance and relationships even though he faced a life-threatening situation.
On the EP, Victony sounds like a changed man- like a more matured man who saw a lot of things and decided that those things would not be a one-time lesson, but a lifetime one
Here is a track by track review of “Outlaw” EP by Victony
Outlaw is more like an intro. And on this track, Victony expresses how he felt following his accident that put him in a wheel chair.
There is something to be learnt here, Victony uses subtle lyrics to indicate that he felt so much support during his recovery.
Victony also expressed how he came out stronger than ever after the recovery from an accident that almost claimed his life. According to him, he feels nothing can harm him no more now because he has been through fire. He saw his life flash before him and now he uses “Outlaw” to show that he came up on top of all that to do what he loves doing again
With this track, Victony says he is no longer afraid of life challenges because “Champion does not fear fire” and he definitely is not afraid of anything that could hurt him anymore.
Chop and Slide
Chop and Slide follows the story of how a lady likes to have sexual relations with Victony and she wants no romantic feelings.
She want to be friends with benefits.
She just wants to “chop and slide”. She wants no relations apart from being Victony’s sexual partner.
The relatability of this song is above the roof. There are many girls and even guys that want no relationship or romantic intentions with their sexual partner. They just want to have sex, and that is the end of it.
For Victony, he already starts having feelings for this girl and he wants “Everything” from her.
A review of this song shows that it thrives on relatabaility. The mixing and production is not entirely stellar. But the lyrics and passionate delivery is on point.
Victony is a lyrically god on Apollo and only God knows how he came up with such intriguing Lyrics for Apollo.
Whoever produced Apollo did an amazing job. Apollo has a dancehall tune to it. It’s a gbedu, and for every gbedu, there must be a sick beat.
It’s as if Victony got angry and went to the studio to record this fire song.
Apollo is a mad jam and Victony delivered every line, every single Lyric, every hook, even the chorus was with so much passion and energy that we wish the song does not end on time even though it’s almost three minutes long.
The noteworthy thing is that Victony’s delivery on Apollo was so natural that it didn’t sound like he was trying to over-do it.
Victony’s Apollo has a strong party vibe and dancehall influence combined with interesting lyrics that makes it a jam. This increases its replay value and makes you want to listen to the song over and over again.
The Song Arrangement of this song sounds off. Also, the mix is not prominent and this prevents the lyrics and Victony’s delivery on the song from laying on the beats perfectly.
All Power sounds too similar and it is the least powerful song of Victony’s Outlaw EP so far.
Although All Power is the statutory “bad-boy” song anthem of male singers in the Nigerian Industry, it still doesn’t sound remarkable even with the lyrics.
Jolene starts with some “No Wahala” vibes. It sounds like “No Wahala” beats were sampled on this song.
But it may not be true too. So far, Jolene is the standout record on Victony’s Outlaw EP asides Apollo.
It has a very catchy hook that seals into the head of listeners. With the lyrics: “Jolene” and the repetition of that particular name, we get very interested in this song. It sounds like “Jolene” will become a hit single from Victony’s Outlaw EP.
Jolene sounds too much like a potential hit. However, the “No Wahala” 1da Banton song doesn’t not help. It should have been beaten down.
Soweto ft Tempoe
Soweto is more of a reference to a girl than it is to a city. It is a romantic song and it sounds really good. But a review of this song on Victony’s Outlaw EP sounds like Soweto lacks song direction.
The pauses indicate that and the fact that the song lyrics are not so interesting even though the song theme is.
- The lyrics of Kolomental by Victony is suitable for the song. Victony uses Kolomental lyrics to talk about staying true to oneself and forgiving people despite what they have done to us.
The lyrics of Kolomental by Victony emphasizes how being his own man is instrumental to being safe.
Victony implies that staying as one’s own man without intervening in other people’s daily affairs will be helpful in getting a grip of life.
To an extent, Victony uses Kolomental lyrics to show that seeking people’s approval is not the way to go.
People can drag you in the mud with them even if you all you try to do is do right by them and you are trying to please them.
Victony’s Kolomental is very relatable.
It sets a precedence for accepting people’s fault and knowing that you can be your own person without the influence of other people.
If you try to examine other people’s act and behaviors because it could make you go crazy.
That’s why Victony uses kolomental lyrics to say that you can’t calculate it People are bound behavior based on how they feel no matter how positive your feelings with them can be.
On Victony’s Outlaw EP, the standout records are “Apollo”, “Outlaw”, “Kolomental” and “Jolene”
Mixing and Production: 1.4/2
Replay Value: 1.7/2
