Produced by J Sleek, “Gud Girl” is another result of versatility from the very creative songwriter and musician…also known as Sound Sultan. If you have not heard it at this moment, you have ‘carried last’ already.
This is a Reggae song coated in Pop; I can see the clubs going crazy on this joint already, and it’s dedicated to the girls who the guys will also want to impress by embracing it. The beat is jumpy and the delivery is groovy… there’s a melodic flow on the hook that glues you to the song from start to end. You can tell that even in Sultan’s feel good music, he still pays attention to his musical notes and general composition, which is lacking in a handful of ‘feel good’ music from this side of the world.
“Gud Girl” is an articulate and literal song that talks about a good girl, who loves a bad boy… which also makes me want to ask again – ‘why do good girls like bad boys? I don’t expect the guys to have the right answer, only the girls can tell it better.
You will agree that Sultan is one of the most consistent artists in Africa with five albums: ‘KPSHEEW’ (2009), ‘COMPULSORY TEXTBOOK’ (2006), ‘007’ (2007), ‘SS4’ (2008), ‘BACK FROM THE FUTURE’ (2010) to his credit. He spends most of his idle time writing and creating music, so if he says he’s releasing an album this year, you best believe it. I also won’t be surprised that a video for this song is already in progress.
Meanwhile, I recommend you save a copy of this song on your phones, iPods and computers… just because.
