P.Square: The Invasion

03 May 2012, 12:27 Tony Smart

If you are a P-Square fan and you were expecting them to take their music a notch higher with their latest album…oops, they did not do it again!

Riding on the glory of their previously successful albums, their fifth studio album, ‘The Invasion’, comes with a difference. A striking difference is the increase in the number of featured artists and in-your face-tracks. With their pose and outfits on the album cover similar to that of the late pop icon, Michael Jackson, the twins sure do know their onions when it comes to costume.

The first track, Onyinye (one of the most used names by Nigerian artists) sounds exactly like a sequel to ‘No one like you’. Betting wedding parties will soon be invaded with this track. ‘Chop My Money’ enters with a lot of energy. The FliP-Tyce produced song with additional vocals from their newly signed artist, May D, is a fusion of techno and local drum line that might get you nodding your head.

In this music era where creativity is the order of the day, P-Square appears to be overly impressed by Wizkid’s smash hit, ‘Don’t Dull’ that they had to re-make the beat for ‘Asamkpokoto’.

Tiwa Savage and May D bless ‘Do as I do’ with nice vocals. The track sounds good but nothing out of the ordinary aside from May D driving it home at the tail end. ‘Forever’ needs no introduction as it has been receiving a lot of airplay on local stations. ‘Me and My brother’ is a reggae tune telling how blessed they have been.

The tempo is raised once more with another techno track, ‘Jeje’. Waje of the ‘Do Me fame’ is re-introduced and she justifies her presence with a powerful voice control. ‘Player’ slides in with a fast tempo, good enough for the clubs while ‘She’s hot’, a rather slow reggae sprinkled tempo song has rapper Naeto C slicing rhymes effortlessly. The roof will surely be set ablaze with the track ‘Fire’; absolutely a party starter any day.

Bunieya Enu, needs no introduction. The Igbo infused track certainly is a feel good thanksgiving song.

If you are not bored with the techno songs already, then ‘Anything’ will also be a good listen.

The last song, ‘Shake it down low’, is what is referred to as saving the best for last; the street dance beat is so sick and on point. The rap verses by Muna and Eva are delicious while the hook by P-Square kills it off. Perhaps this track should have been introduced a bit earlier.

The Verdict

From the over used techno beats to the sampling of other artists’ beat and lyrics. P-Square’s Invasion album personally skates on a very thin ice. The engagement of three notable marketers, Tjoe, Abhu Ventures and Obaino, might do a little to salvage this imminent album disaster.

P-Square should know by now that anything short of magic spells doom, ask 9ice. However, this is not to undermine the quality of work that was put into the production of the songs.
