The track with the first feature is Whistle with Lojay and Amaarae and they are a perfect trio. One thing that resonates on each track is Blaqbonez’s consistent use of sexual words and descriptions to pass across his message. Also his lyrical delivery is worth commending, this is one area where he makes the rap genre beautiful. Fashionnova has the same sexual intent as he eulogies his love interest and what he intents doing once again in the bedroom.
