‘My Place’ is Owen Bright’s debut single and should be commended. However, aside bringing the Musical Taliban on board and getting a very good beat, this new act has more work to do.
In ‘My Place’, his lyrics are very basic as each fails to excite like it should on this nice-sounding beat. I mean, the beat has already done half of the job. Here’s where you appreciate the likes of Wizkid, May D, Davido, et al. They effortlessly turn basic to bronze, jargons to gold, clichés to pay. In this regard, Owen’s effort in the introductory verse isn’t stimulating, though some may consider the chorus catchy.
But then, Oritsefemi typically adds more flavour to the track. Sometimes you just wish the guy never stops. The second featured star on the other hand does not offer enough to pick the tempo up from where Oritsefemi took the song. Maginto’s rap verse is nothing but an appendix. Altogether, ‘My Place’ is okay but not quite the hit, I promise.
