Bad Boy Timz 'No Bad Boy, No Party' Album Review, Yours Truly, Reviews, March 2, 2024

Timz shows that he is in high spirits on the cover of his new album. Brandishing his accessories and cool diastema, he looks like an excited boyfriend announcing to his babe that he won a $10 million lottery.

Tracks and Features

“Igboro” begins the record on a groovy note. Timz lauds his foundation, his roots and life before stardom, which has formed who he is today. Though a ghetto, the singer, over the harmonious Afrobeat bounce, takes pride in his humble beginnings and story. Another fine touch to the track is the background choir chanting melodious life into the chorus. Timz teams up with ace producer P. Prime on the party jam “Tossmitoss.” On the upbeat dance tune, Bad Boy lets us in on the superstar life and his feelings for his love interest whose love is stuck on his brain. Timz and Priime work with such a scary synchrony, as the fast-rising singer sprinkles his ingenuity on the song’s intro and outro.

In the Semzi-produced “Lockdown,” Timz sings about a two-faced lover who played him. The worst part is, her father is army officer, but it hurts that he was head-over-heels in love with her before discovering her crooked ways. Guitar chords start “Santorini,” the next song also produced by Semzi. Timz expresses his delight on finally bagging the babe of his dreams, and promises to give her all the premium treats.

Then comes “Skelele,” which features Baddo himself, Olamide. Over the Amapiano-infused beat, Timz and Baddo flow with ease as they discuss their love for their baddies and their waistlines. The good vibes spill into “Pop (Alcohol Alcohol),” where he sings about having a good time while babysitting his dearest shayo all night. Additionally, Semzi continues his masterful production run on the album.

Things gets intensely intimate in “On Me,” in which Timz describes how he wants to be loved and kept company. He’s also willing to give back, as he breaks down how good he’ll make his lover feel. The flow and delivery of the singer shows his professional expertise and excellent artistry. Timz and his creativity should be respected for coming up with a chorus like that from thin air. The production deserves applause too. Zlatan brings the needed energy as he joins the Amapiano party in “I Salute.” The musical chemistry and delivery from both artists are incredible–solid verses and a fun chorus.

The delectable Shenseea is tapped for the remix of “Move,” and both artists sing about having the most fun and living life to fullest without palaver. Somehow Timz became a poet but drops one hilarious yet confusing wordplay in the second verse. “Life is a sea, plenty Fanta–Fantasy” is a line you would try to wrap your head around in futility, but who says you can’t try?

A voice note from a female starts “Mental,” where he empties his heart and lets us know how much he is into his lover, though she wouldn’t always reciprocate the energy, which hurts seeing as she is on his brain 24/7. It hurts more because he has had to turn down and ignore numerous chances to be a playboy. Timz flexes his vocals in the song’s chorus which brings out the sweetness of the song, in addition to a fantastic production.

It’s only right that a lovely album like this ends with some brotherly love and light in “Make Sense.” It also makes sense that BNXN was featured on the song because the singer shines on chill conscious tracks like this. Semzi produced the song like he clearly understood the assignment. The entire album is a solid project and promising debut.
