Odunsi (The Engine) – Better Days Feat. WANI MP3 Download
Yesterday was yesterday, today is today. Odunsi (The Engine) kept his unbelievable momentum going strong by unveiling the split singles Better Days / Wetin Dey, at the tail end of the week.
While I gather the A side — B side split was rendered that way on purpose- I went about reviewing the second first, but not out of irreverence. I just found the whole idea of a nuptial getting ransacked by partygoers, wildly entertaining. But as it turns out, it was ignorant of me to gloss over the other song, “Better Days.”
What strikes me in particular- is that on “Better Days” sings of taking shots straight to the liver with the innocence of a debutant.
But deeper into the record, you get a sense of Odunsi’s latent “experience,” and his charm. In the spirit of making something new of the “love ballad,” Odunsi shows an unwillingness to coddle his would-be romantic subject, and that’s all there is to it. Bitterness and sweetness are one and the same.
