Brand New: Mr Blue feat Steve – Tabasamu

Mr Blue has been one of those artists in TZ that climbs and drops the charts based on how chics feel about him at the current time. Truthfully when he first came out with that Mapozi track years ago under G Records (am not sure how old he was, he musta been like 13 or 14) he took Tanzania by storm. The whole LL Cool J phenom the licking of the lips and the swagger, the corn rows – I mean the Kid became an icon, a brand – MR BLUE used to wear Blue all day-every day. He was a well packaged product by default that just worked for the Bongo Flava market.

He dropped a couple big tracks, made some cheddar sold mad albums and then just disappeared a little from the music scene. This is some new fire from him that apparently is taking East Africa as a whole by storm. Am not in Tanzania so I cant really tell what the pulse of the song is in the streets, but from what I can hear this is a killer track and definitely a banger. I guess whats left is for you to sample it for yourself…

    There are two types of hit songs: those that grow on you, and those that blow on you at the first listen. This I must say belongs to the latter category. I did not have to give it a second listen…no second guessing. This is mad tight as hell! Something about the chord progression…for those who understand a lil about music, them chords used on this song are one of the few that are almost certain to produce good results as long as you have the right talent to work with. They are the sames ones longombas used in that “Queen” track and i can trace them back to some old skul jam that used to go something like “life..oh life…ohooo life..oh life” (sorry, never ever knew the name of the song…that’s the best I can do)

    This track is nice. I couldn’t resist commenting. Have to agree with Mark above. It’s one of those songs u don’t have to listen to twice. It was hot from the first time I heard it.
