A seamless playlist
The sequencing of the songs on the album is seamless and even. Through exploring different themes, the songs phase into each other very well. There is a bit of discordance when the song moves from an explicit one to a more emotional track. However, it doesn’t change the seamless way into which the songs blend into each other giving a relaxing, enjoyable experience.
Proud lover themes and excellent delivery
Ruger is not afraid to brag about his talent and it is one of the prominent themes on the album. The songs Tour and Asiwaju see Ruger talk about making it to the current height of his career. He also sings about how in demand he is by everyone.
His songs Dear Ex and Red Flags show more of his emotional side. Ruger sings about his relationship with love, women, and of course, his exes.
The collaborative artists also hold their own well on the songs, Stefflon Don was a tad underwhelming on Addiction. On the other hand, Sauti Sol, Jugglerz and Projexx are amazing on their tracks. Their unique styles elevate the songs that they feature.
Ruger lives up to the hype he built for this album. His songwriting, melody progression and storytelling is at an all-time high on this project. The songs are enjoyable and catchy and will have listeners on the dance floor while thinking about their exes.
