Adekunle Gold delivers new track, “Mercy”, off his forthcoming album
Adekunle Gold as promised last week Friday, delivers the anticipated Mercy track, which happens to be track 5 on his forthcoming album, “Catch Me If You Can”. The song is produced by Blaise Beats, mixed by Simi and the hook interpolates Baba Fryo’s “Dem Go Dey Pose” hit song.
The song, Mercy, starts off by Simi voicing the two line intro which heaps praise on the track’s owner—Adekunle Gold. She says: “AG Baby carry body body / Bad Boy Deks no dey worry worry” and immediately Adekunle Gold dives into the first verse, a prayerful one at that, asking God to give him the insight to be able to spot his enemies despite their various camouflaging.
The hook as stated interpolates the ’90s hit song—”Dem Go Dey Pose”—with AG Baby rendering the original hook as: “I go dey po / I go denge denge / I go dey po / Dem go wakakurukere” before continuing the spiritual theme from the first verse, but this time around, he sings about trusting in God and knowing he is covered, so much that nobody can bring trouble towards him or try to distort what his maker (God) has in plans for him.
Mercy is off of the slated February 4 to-be-released “Catch Me If You Can”; an Afrobeat production with some elements of dancehall in its instrumentation. Adekunle Gold switches from English to the colloquial Pidgin interchangeably throughout the song.
