While only just dropping “Pour Me Water”, his first official single of 2017, Mr Eazi has managed to stay on everyone’s lips throughout the year by featuring on a host of songs, dropping a ton of music videos, remixing a couple of his biggest hits and occasionally pissing off Nigerians.
On the mid-tempo “Pour Me Water”, which is competently produced by the talented E Kelly – the man behind one of Mr Eazi’s biggest and best songs, “Leg Over” – we find the singer clearly trying to recreate the magic of his past hits.
Granted, “Pour Me Water” is definitely no “Leg Over” or “Skin Tight” but it does have the same chill vibe that made those songs so damn appealing. Sure, it’s really nowhere near as good as they are, but it’s just good enough to be, at the very least, a minor hit.
So, while his mixtape, Life Is Eazi, Vol. 1 – Accra To Lagos, found him ditching the sound that made him popular in the first place, “Pour Me Water” seems like a welcome return to form. Honestly, whether you actually like the song or not, you better prepare yourself to hear it everywhere this holiday.
