Music Review: “Betty Butter” by Mayorkun ft Davido

Artists: Mayorkun, Davido

Genre: Afropop

Producer: SperoachBeatz

Length: 2:09

Verses: 3

The Mayor of Lagos, Mayorkun teams up again with the DMW Boss, Davido, in his new hit single “Betty Butter,” produced by SperoachBeatz and directed by Clarence Peters.

Normally, many artists derive inspiration to write song from anyone, anything, anywhere. For Mayorkun, his friend @Bettie Faraday inspired his single Betty Butter.

On this track, Speroach who is more like an in-house producer for the DMW record label created a classic Afropop beat moved by slow pop piano sound with a simple drum pattern.

The highlight of this record was the harmonization of the chorus.

Some persons will say “even if something seems flawless. Nothing is perfect, so there will probably be one of two faults. “
Yeah, this is no doubt true. The track sounded like every regular Afropop record, the creativity was low.
For a tune like ‘Betty Butter’ we needed a different vibe, not the one we are already familiar with, but in all, it was a good work done.

The production was fab, the vocals were clear and audible. All these soothed the instrumental.

Have a look at what the two artistes (Mayorkun and Davido) had to say about the song:

“Betty Butter was such a fun track for me to write. I actually took inspiration from a conversation of myself and Davido about social media, women etc. The video just emulates the song perfectly. Super excited to see the reaction from the fans on this one!”—- Mayorkun

Collaborating with Mayorkun again has been well overdue; our first track together BOBO was such a hit, so it only made sense for us to jump on yet another track together and really bring the heat in this as Mayorkun becomes a real star.” —– Davido

Well, these artists have shown fans that COVID 19 or no COVID 19, songs must be released, money must be made and fans must be happy.

Cheers to good music!!!
