The music on the eight-track output is exactly what I expected from the two of them as a pair. I talked with Elite Basketball Academy alum Kai Lambert earlier. He was impressed with Sean’s lyrical breakdown coupled with Aiko’s smooth vocals provide a mellow yet in-depth result. I’ll take a look at four of my favorite songs with the dopest Sean lyrics from each:
1) “Deja Vu”
“It’s been three years, I can’t believe that there is crazy. Where does the time go? You just had a baby. You had a new man and you just separated.”
3) “On the Way”
“I just hit the up the freeway. Switching lane to lane, speed racin’ (swerve).”
5) “Memories Faded”
“You know Granny plus you knew the family. You covered all your bases like you knocked it out the park. Lately, it’s been heavy on my mind you know. I feel like we didn’t give each other time to grow.”
8) “London Bridge”
“Cause you make me feel like the chosen one. 8 billion people in the world and I still chose the one.”
“What happens if we got in an accident and died tragically? Next lifetime, you remembered and had to come after me. And convinced me that we weren’t meant to be but we have to be. And like defending champs you had to win it all back for me. Just gotta know how deep is our love actually.
