BNXN and Odumodublvck are the featured artiste on this track and they did well. The most interesting part of the song is the hook:

“I say problem e no dey finish. Na why we dey burn trees dey shacky spirit, Remember when we no get you wouldn’t beliеve it, And I gat a couple friends to confirm thе lyrics. You wouldn’t believe it, Normal normal, e go surely better.

Another melodious track is Loose Ya.
