If “listenable” was ever a song, it’d definitely be Swayth3rd’s “Yohwe Maihwe”. I wish many people would actually get on this track; its one of those oddly satisfying numbers that carry a “just right” vibe. Sure, the instrumental sounds like someone should be expecting a call from Drake’s lawyers, but then again when was inspiration ever a bad thing?
Just listening to this song, I can already envision people slow grinding in a smoke polluted and intentionally poorly lit club. Although I completely pledge allegiance to the general vibe, I still feel like the chorus could’ve been tweaked just a little bit so it actually hits right. Here’s a funny thing about this song; you might just miss it when they say “Yohwe Maihwe”!
Is it Afro Pop? Is it Hip Hop? Is it both? Who cares? Ambiguity is sexy nowadays!
