Over a year since D’Prince released his last single, the not-so-successful ‘Gucci Gang’, which featured Davido and Don Jazzy, accompanied by his various disappearing spells over the years, D’Prince seems to have gotten some form of direction since discovering Rema, as he has now put out a body of work, a 3-track EP titled, ‘Lavida’.
Despite being just a three-track body of work, D’Prince attempts a major show of versatility, doling out three contrasting sounds. First up is the title track, ‘Lavida’, which features Rema with Arabian intonations that we now know to be Rema’s signature, the beat for “Lavida” is perfectly suited to D’Prince’s featured act. Charged with the song’s chorus and also awarded a verse, Rema steals the show on ‘Lavida’, after an impressive opening verse from D’Prince.
Track 2 features Don Jazzy and is titled ‘My Place’. Produced by Baby Fresh, the song is a distinctly celebratory track with live band accents, making for a super catchy number that rings typical of the two afropop old-hands.
The project ends with a solo from D’Prince, with Baby Fresh once again on the production of the RnB closer, ‘True Love’. Describing a love-at-first-sight encounter, ‘True Love’ proves that the only constant on this EP is D’Prince’s love of women — the subject matter he adopts for all three tracks.
