Gibrilville’s ‘Can of Soda’ is another heart-wrenching single from the star

Published

on

Hot off the back of his Akademia Award, Hip-Hop and Afrobeat artist, Gibrilville has released his latest single ‘Can of Soda’. Awarded the 2022 Outstanding Legacy Award on June 4th in California, the award acknowledged Gibrilville’s contribution to creating a musical legacy deemed timeless and important for future generations. Following the success of this, Gibrilville’s ‘Can of Soda,’ a collaborative single, is taken off his upcoming album ‘’Good Things Manifest & Bad Things Defect’’ (GTMBTD).

With half a million Spotify streams already under his belt from the release of his previous single ‘Dididaada,’ ‘Can of Soda’ follows the release of ‘Angels’, which addressed his struggles while in prison. ‘Can of Soda’ is filled with heartbreak and pain, a part of Gibrilville’s journey that is still as important as the happy moments. He explains, “I went into prison with a lot of pain. My ex and I had just lost a child due to complications. We really wanted the baby. I handled it badly and I became unfaithful.” He met Jessica and fell in love immediately, touching upon their love story in the single. “Emotionally ‘Can of soda’ is heavy and is the perfect follow up to ‘Angels’ as my life story unfolds through my new album, ‘’GTMBTD’’’, Gibrilville explains.

While the subject matter weighs heavy, the vibe of the track is light, exploring summer vibes, which appropriately coincides with the summer release date. Using contemporary production of rhythmic Afrobeat and effective synth parts, the true storytelling is actually in Gibrilville’s dynamic delivery.

Unraveling the story of his time in prison, the clarity of Gibrilville’s voice shines through, each word loud and clear, refusing to shy away from his troubled past. Instead, he embraces his journey, recognizing what has happened and allowing himself to move forward through music. Lyrically ‘’I’m locked up on the judge’s order’’ and ‘’before my visiting hours are over, let me get a can of coca cola’’ sheds a light on his time in prison, while ‘’we had a connection’’ touches on his romantic relationship with Jessica. Gibrilville’s honesty and openness invites listeners into his personal story, making it a relatable listen.

According to the singer, the song talks about love having its up and down moments. It advises people to apply some logic so as not to go through as much pain as Camidoh did.

“I wouldn’t say much but losing a partner I loved very much to a few arguments or misunderstandings here and there hurts so bad,” he says indicating that the incident has nothing to do with infidelity.

He further mentions that he broke down completely, got depressed and had to go through a therapy session.

“I made a lot of life long plans with this person,” he added.
