For Mayorkun, it’s been a long time coming and “Back In Office” is a documentary of the life he’s been living, the times, and the vibes.
“Back In Office” is his first album in three years. Sure, he’s fed the streets consistently and he did hold down the lockdown for a long time. But for his status, that’s just not enough.
Since the last time he dropped something, Wizkid has three projects, Olamide has released four, Burna Boy had released three and Davido, two. Now, if the Mayor of Lagos is gonna be considered as even the next in line for the kind of dominance those four guys have, he needs to have his works on the streets more.
“Back In Office” has that instant appeal that quickly reminds us of why Mayorkun has all the love he has. For one, in this song, he sounds like someone that actually learned from Davido. On to the next, and the next, and you’ll realize Mayorkun has actually changed.
There’s not a lot of themes, or topics in “Back In Office.” It’s simply just Mayorkun trying to get back to the streets, make a few hits in the process—obviously—and just move on to the next phase.
Musically, the album is fire. But then again, that’s no surprise cause Mayorkun understands this music thing. He’s got very breathtaking backup vocals, too. And the instrumentals, couldn’t be better.
