This review is for the song, Pose by S.O.N. Pose is a song by Jos based multi- talented artist and producer, S.O.N featuring Oluwadrumma. It was released on 29th of October, 2021. It has a total length of 224 seconds (3 minutes 44 seconds). The genre of the song is Afro pop with little dash of Electronic Dance Music.
Pose is a dance song. It’s the kind of song that you play in a celebration like wedding, birthday, and it will definitely get everyone on their feet and dancing. It aims at encouraging believers not to hide testimonies of what God has done for them, but rather to share them.
- Great production. The very first thing that you hear when you play the song is this beautiful synth bass accompanied with a soothing piano. The production of the song is the strongest point of the song. It’s beautiful. The choice of instruments were perfect and they were skillfully played.
- Great composition. The chord progression was beautiful and there was dynamics in the song. Even though the chord progression was the same throughout the song, yet the production was done in such a way that there was dynamics in the song. There was this beautiful interlude after every verse/Chorus that kept the song interesting from the beginning to the end of the song. You could play the song over and over and not get tired of it.
- Relevant message. The message of the song was relevant.
- Great vocal delivery. SON did a great job. His vocals depicted the message of the song well and blended well with the instrumentation. Also, the artist featured in the video, A Mose, did an awesome job as well. His verse added spice to the song.
What could have been improved
- The words used in the lyrics to pass across the message is a bit limiting. The slangs used are not timeless and excludes the older generation from understanding the message of the song. Only the younger folks would understand the song’s message well. Considering that the message of the song is not exclusively for young people alone, the use of words that would be easily understood by everyone (including the older folks) would have been better.
Pose is a beautiful song. Personally, it ranks among the most played songs on my playlist. On a scale of 1- 10, I rate this song 9/10. You listen or download the song using this link. Or you could watch the video here.
