Nigerian Queen of Alternative Music Zainab Sule released a new track entitled “Adrenaline“. This track is the first single from her forthcoming album slated for release in the fourth quarter of 2017.
The first time I listened to this track, I was impressed by how the beats flowed with the rhythm of the song. At the same time, it’s a well-produced song. You get this ambient feeling at the beginning of the song that puts you in a certain mood. On the song Adrenaline, Zainab Sule talks about a lost dream and how she found hope in something new. It is a good effort. What I like about Zainab Sule is her passion for her music and how she keeps pushing herself to do better. I must say that each new release from her has been an improvement on the previous release. She does not rest on her oars. Right on the heels of one new release, she is already working on the next project. And that’s what separates her from her peers in the Nigerian Rock Music community.
The instrumentals blended well with the flow of the song. This song comes out to me as a pop song with a blend of funk. And I will say in every bit of what a pop song should be, Zainab did a good job on this. Right after the second chorus, her vocals did not come out smoothly, but it did not entirely affect the output of the song. There were portions of the song where her vocals were a bit rough. At a point, I was hoping she would further stretch the intensity of her vocals just before the first chorus. I imagined that would have been an interesting addition to the song. The part I enjoyed the most is where the guitar came in for the short solo.
All in all, “Adrenaline” is a good pop song. I like the theme of the song. It can almost be mistaken for a love song. It is not a love song. It’s just a song talking about a new-found passion that gives an adrenaline rush. “Adrenaline” is a good melodious pop song with a mixture of soul music, jazz and R&B that gets you dancing once the chorus comes on. Kudos to Zainab on this new song. It’s a commendable effort and I wish her all the best in her future releases.
