Zlatan’s New Song; “This Year,” Lacks Melody & Good Tune – Should He Have Done Better?

Taiwo Oluwafemi | - Leave A Comment

Zlatan’s move to quickly drop a proper single; “This Year” of his would be considered a good move considering the buzz that has been around him since his saga with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission “ended,” but i personally just feel he hasn’t made the best out of it.

The song direction is a thoughtful one as it is one that contains prayers for progress and breakthroughs. But for an artiste who has been arguably the most sought-after Nigerian act since late 2018, should he conisder a song that is devoid of melody, good vocals and not so good instrumentation? No!

My opinion is Zlatan is a pretty decent indigenous rapper and i am one of his greatest fans. But if i am to project an opinion that abstains from sentiment, i would opine that “This Year” isn’t just a record i find appealing, infact i find it not just appealing in no way.

Probably the only consolation i can find in the song is the fact that i can listen to Zlatan’s rap voice (which i consider unique), and that is understandable. It is because i am a fan.

However, could this song aid my friends’ notions that Zlatan is an artiste that is moulded in a way to make other people’s records shine? I don’t want to agree to this!

Could it also also help back their opinions that Zlatan is a beneficiary of luck and not the mastery in his artistry? This i totally don’t agree with anyway.

Nevertheless, “This Year” could end up being a major 2019 hit like “Zanku” did towards the Christmas period in 2018, but i am not just enjoying the new piece. He can do much better.

Moreso, Rexxie should have done absolutely better on this record. Zlatan deserves more after bringing his name to a certain degree of fame in the music industry. He should have just done more to finesse the record.

Maybe the damage in the record might not have been Zlatan’s doing and instead, Rexxie’s. The beat is poor!

Meanwhile, my review of the song has sprung up a question which is – Should Zlatan and Rexxie have done better on “This Year“?
