On ‘I Love Girls With Trobul’, Sarz & WurlD Hit All The Right Notes

November 8, 2019

Sarz and WurlD first teased their immense chemistry on 2018 highlight, “TROBUL”. They then quickly reaffirmed it with another seemingly effortless collab, “EGO”. Now, they’ve utilised it to full effect on their joint EP, I LOVE GIRLS WITH TROBUL.

Sarz has always been widely regarded as Nigeria’s greatest producer, and if we are judging by how the Headies dole out trophies, WurlD is 2019’s ‘Best Male Vocalist’. On the EP, both stars justify all that acclaim, delivering a project that works on pretty much every level.

Like the title suggests, the EP is all about intense feelings between complicated people. On the divine opener, “PRISONA”, WurlD sings about feeling trapped by an all-consuming love, while the closing track, “SADE” is about him selfishly wishing an ex would never move on.

While WurlD’s vocals lead the charge — with his performance on the sultry “SWEAT” being an undeniable highlight— Sarz’s contribution cannot be praised enough. His production work is unreal throughout, showcasing his enviable range and great ear.

Thanks to how in sync both stars clearly are, I LOVE GIRLS WITH TROBUL emerges as an unmitigated triumph. It will surely go down as one of the best Nigerian releases of the year, as well as one of the most accomplished joint projects we’ve ever had.
