Laycon simply showed versatility on his debut album ‘shall we begin’
First of all, I will love to congratulate Laycon on his journey and artistic versatility so far towards the debut studio album ‘Shall we begin.
The confidence to put out an album is highly commendable, the direction, choice of features are near perfect, enlisting Teni, Mayorkun, Joeboy, Terri, and YKB
However, a 12 track project that is sonically directed towards self-expression with poetic lessons takeout, the lyrics, melody, and overall delivery appear very intentional.
Also, the most important highlight from the album is the choice of features, great dual supporting singles (Fall Me & Wagwan), artwork, and track arrangement.
‘Shall We Begin’ ushers Laycon in total music conversations, album is a special music artistry project that adds a solid impact in a musical career, in a nutshell, Laycon has completed all the phases that will harness into physical results, talk about awards nominations and worthy rating lists in the recent possible future.
In Joey Akan words “The focus and presence of mind for him to stretch himself through the celebrity, to anchor it all on sustainable art, impresses me, the right way to wield fame is to use it as fuel for productivity”.
In addition, ‘Shall We Begin’ orchestrates versatility, his singing and rapping ability, poetic inner side, his choice of features, how every featured artiste complemented and added a very good vibe to the songs.
Laycon expresses himself more in the solo tracks like Bam Bam, God Body, all over me, my lane, and still goes head to head with the features.
Tracks like ‘Verified’, ‘Want You Back’ are potential hit songs, and ‘Jeje’ also bump as a feel-good hit song.
Also, the intro and outro defined the direction of the album, the spoken poetry, and enchanting melodies prepares a mind on the theme of the project.
