The new Afrobeats hit is all about love with Joeboy pouring out his heart to this woman that she can't get off his mind.
"Tell me why you dey confuse me (oh baby) Your body too attractive; And the way I fall for you E Dey be like magic (oh no) Na where you dey me I go dey And I no go fit to come another day (odo) I go dey call you ma bebe Na together we go dey we no go fade away," read part of the lyrics.
In another part of the song, Joeboy sings; "Why be sey na you dey ma mind Sey you no be option no be lie
Oya make we run away make we fly away (oh no no no) Why be sey na you dey ma mind Sey you no be an option no be lie Oya make we fly away make we run away."
