We're always here for exciting innovations, and the Mavins have brought on a new kind to Nigeria's music industry. Their official DJ, Big N featured Reekado Banks, Iyanya and YCee on a new track "The Trilogy", which consists of three different songs in one, and we think it's a genius piece of work!
"The Trilogy" starts off with a verse from Reekado Banks, where he sings about being in love and in usual Reekado fashion, it's great. His part is produced by Mavin's regular Baby fresh which kind of makes us question what DJ Big N's role is in the song, but it doesn't really matter at this point, it's a jam!
After one minute the beat switches up from up- to mid-tempo with an Iyanya verse, where he sings about his work proving his deserved success. Iyanya has adopted a new reggae tone which he used on his previous single "Good Vibes", and it works well on his feel-good beat for the next minute of "The Trilogy".
At this point, we get the gist of the song so YCee's shift is a bit more seamless and the beats don't switch up as drastically. His subject matter isn't as clear as the others', however, his flow is great and is a good way to close out the song.
In the crisp accompanying video, Big N, Reekado, Iyanya and YCee are wanted criminals who are being investigated by a pretty lady cop. By the end of it, they're on to her tricks and it closes out with them plotting against her.
The video is just as engaging as the song and definitely needs more plays than one to take in the storyline and the different songs in it. We're here for this kind of shaking the table and are shooting "The Trilogy" right up to number 1 on our playlists.
