'Ride With You' - Funbi - [Song Review]
Funbi is a Nigerian artist with over 32,000 monthly listens on Spotify. Funbi released a couple of singles (including his most listened to song, “Hallelujah”) before coming out with his LP, ‘Serenade’. Off of this album, he presents us with his number one Spotify song, “Ride With You”.
“Ride With You” is a romantic, love filled song. The bass line carries the song from start to finish and gives it the depth it requires to invoke feelings upon the listener. While the song has power to it, it also has a fun lightness that makes it possible to dance along while listening.
Being in love amplifies anything you’ve ever felt. Every emotion makes its way into the decisions you make. You plan your day according to when you will be so lucky to see the object of your affections.
You live your life hiding your feelings and keeping your desires to yourself. It’s not until you’re alone when you can scream it all out for the entire empty room to hear. “Ride With You” brings those thoughts to the front of your mind. The optimistic, upbeat tune encourages you to sing out and feel every emotion to the best of your ability. It is the sound track to any moment when you are so in love that you have to literally shout it from the rooftops. The words, “You’re gonna be my love, I will always ride with you” allow the listener to accept their love and proudly express what they are forced to suppress.
While it can be difficult to keep everything stuffed inside, it is not at all difficult to let a song bring everything out.
Allow this song to move you in any way it can. Allow it to let you love out loud…. And if you can’t do either of those things, at least listen and dance a little.
