The dynamic duo exudes a captivating sense of confidence on their latest album cover. The album art features the duo in a setting that aligns with the “learning” or “reading” theme of the artwork from the first edition. They are pictured in front of a library backdrop, with open books in front of them. This image is a testament to their dedication and hard work as they tirelessly “study and prepare” themselves for the challenges. The duo’s commitment to excellence is further highlighted by their reference to “continuous assessments,” suggesting that they always strive to improve their craft. The image and message conveyed by the album art are ones of inspiration and determination, encouraging fans to pursue their passions with the same level of dedication and focus.

Tracks And Features

The album opens with “Dreams II,” a high-energy track featuring Zlatan and Blaqbonez that follows up on their previous collaboration. The duo’s flow and rhythm are on full display, and they effortlessly pick up where they left off in the first edition of the Bad Boy Etiquette project. The song inspires listeners to pursue their dreams and challenges them to ask themselves, “How bad do you want it?”

“Last week” is the next track, featuring Jeriq. The song has a mellow vibe and focuses on the dangers of smoking, with the lyrics urging listeners to make the right choices. The background vocals are a standout feature, adding depth to the track’s overall sound.

“You Go Know” is a bold and empowering track that showcases the duo’s versatility, resilience, and determination. The song challenges rumours and gossip and tells detractors they’re on guard. The background saxophone adds a layer of complexity to the track, making it stand out.

“Wicked” is a song that criticizes the manipulative behaviour of some women towards men. The duo expresses their frustration with the treatment they received from an imaginary woman and declares their intention to move on. The lyrics are relatable and well-delivered, making the track a fan favourite.

Odumodublvck is featured on “Celine Dion,” a playful and light-hearted track about an imaginary lover who isn’t entirely faithful. Combining the two artists doesn’t always work in some places, but thankfully, the catchy beat and clever lyrics make it a fun listen.

“Undecided” is a standout track that features Raebel in the chorus. The song criticizes women who prioritize money over their relationships and highlights the negative impact of such behaviour. The lyrics are well-written, and the chorus is incredibly catchy, making it one of the album’s highlights.

“Kisses II” features Magixx and is a song about a couple dealing with infidelity. The track is well-executed, with both artists delivering solid performances that highlight the emotional complexity of the situation.

“Sweet and Sour” features King Promise and highlights the duo’s warning to their lover, whom they claim gives them a jaga jaga (complicated) love. Despite this, they admit they’re really in love and hope their lover will change. The track is well-produced, with each artist delivering strong vocals that complement each other perfectly.

“No Wam” is a powerful track that calls out infidelity in all its forms. The lyrics are well-written, and the duo delivers strong performances, highlighting the emotional consequences of infidelity in relationships. Sarkodie is featured on the album’s final track, “Burn My Cable,” which is also a remix. The song is a perfect ending to the album, with highlife elements on a grime beat that makes for a great combination. Sarkodie delivers a standout verse showcasing his impressive rapper skills, making it a highlight of the album.
