Highly reminiscent of Akon’s old sound that birthed hits like Lonely, Escape is a heartwarming love ballad complete with an acoustic soundscape that allows for the eruption of feelings along with its rising tempo.
Wizkid takes the lead with a stunning first verse with the power to serenade his listeners, in the same manner, he wishes to, his muse. Akon comes on the second verse after a comely chorus with a nostalgia inspiring promise to his lover. Together, the duo manages to get their listeners yearning for the escape they sing about.
