about

Over the past few years, Nigerian artists Maka and Phlow have dropped some fire collaborations together, including several off the latter’s great 2016 project, Mind, Body & Phlow. And that trend continues on with the release of “No One,” a romantically minded new track that seamlessly blends the best parts of Hip-Hop, R&B, and Soul.

The two talented vocalists share their own unique thoughts on love and what it means to them in their lives. For Phlow, who opens the track, she reflects on the ups and downs of a turbulent relationship—and whether it’s worth it. Maka, on the other hand, comes across far more lovelorn with her sing-song verse, which boasts thoughtful lines like, “They say it’s addiction, don’t let it be my downfall.”

The smooth vibes of “No One” are supplied by another frequent collaborator and fellow Str8Buttah labelmate, producer Teck-Zilla. He layers looping and warming keys with finger snaps to set the mood, much like he’s done with Phlow and Maka in the past. And as for their future, Phlow is hard at work in the studio while Maka has a new single, “Sinner,” dropping soon. “No One” is now available for stream—Happy Valentine’s Day!

lyrics

[ Verse 1: Phlow ]
You-are-gravity to me .You pull me in 
Sensations all around me bend 
And lean towards your freaking end 
Like if I break I cannot mend 
But I feel you , You take me up 
Then I fall into you deep,Can't get up
Instead I keep like a looped beat,There's the drop
And there's the drop again ,Like I cannot stop
And I'm already lost in the though of you
Already stuck in a dream, Where's it's starring you 
Of course you where playing you 
I was playing me, No one else in it .Just us two
But do you see me .The way that I see you baby
Healing scars along the way .Save me
Up in them endless highs with you ,Crazy


[Chorus 1: Maka ]
Its another day again
Everyday is just the same
Cos I'm thinking' bout no one but you
So I'm praying to Jehova
Shout Amen and Hallelujah
Can somebody save me now from you
I na agbaka (gbaka) m isi eh (2x)
Eh, eh, biko, please
I na agbaka (gbaka) m isi eh

[ Verse 2 : Maka ]
What is this thing called love?
Is it something that gets you the way that it gets me?
You're all I'm thinking of - 
And they say its addiction, don't let it be my downfall
It feels like I'm stuck in time
Cos each day I wake up with you on my mind
And not a day goes by
But if you ask how much I love you,
Its from the ground up to the sky

[Chorus 2: Maka ]
Its another day again
Everyday is just the same
Cos I'm thinking' bout no one but you
So I'm praying to Jehova
Shout Amen and Hallelujah
Can somebody save me now from you
I na agbaka (gbaka) m isi eh (2x)
Eh, eh, biko, please
I na agbaka (gbaka) m isi eh

[Outro: Phlow X Maka ]
I've forgotten all the noise babe
Together we can get into our own space
Put all into action ,What our words say
Take me up to places ,In your mind babe
But do you see me,The way that I see you baby
Healing scars along the way,Save me 
Up in them endless highs with you ,Crazy

I na agbaka gbaka m isi eh (you make me go crazy)
Biko (please)
