At the beginning of this year, fast-rising Nigerian act known by stage name B-Slik blew up our airwaves with his spanking new single Trigger My Heart published under his record label I THINK MUSIC. The song has been rated as one of the best tracks being streamed on the Nigerian social media sphere as of recent.
The single which is a mixture of Afro-pop and some nice modern RnB tunes talks about a love interest who the artiste has aligned with.
In a well-choreographed, upscale music video shot at different exotic locations which include a beach, the singer describes his affections for the lady while telling her what she stands to gain if she accepts his advances.
The dance moves are very synchronized and the sound flows well in accordance with the lyrics. It is this effectiveness that suggests that beyond the shock of his lyrics, this is an artist that has a real chance at pop success.
His voice appears pleasant enough even as it appears to have been autotuned. On verse after verse, he demonstrates a delightful technique for layering his lyrics, one line over another, amplifying the pressure on his end-of-line rhyme.
Those words roll off B-Slik’s mouth, soft, smooth, like butter. It is the sound of youth, easy to fall in love with, versatile enough to fit with the highlife production in high demand today.
Paired with the right producers, he will do very remarkable things because anyone who has actually taken out time to listen to his music will surely agree that it is a pure indication of broad appeal.
