Over the weekend, Jamaican dancehall star Kranium tapped Tiwa Savage for the remix of his single ‘Gal Policy‘ released earlier in the year. This plays as the second time he’s teaming up with a Nigerian act, joining forces with Burna Boy for his 2019 single ‘Hotel‘.
On his opening verse on the mid-tempo dancehall tune, the self-acclaimed melody gad points fingers at boys who don’t know how to keep their game together, carelessly cheating on their spouses. But in the chorus, he presents himself as the model to follow, the super-sharp player who has mastered the art of keeping his side chics in check, such that they don’t bring his dirty linen close to his home. “Nuh gyal mi fuck cyan start nuh drama…Every mistress know dem policy/ After nine o’clock, she cyan call mi” he gloats.
With her balmy voice, Tiwa Savage takes it right home with her makeshift patios in the second verse. She comes through as the riled lover who has had to put up with her man’s incessant unchastity. But she has also given him a free hand as long she has him all to herself when she wants him. “Baby boy, you know the policy, after nine, you better be home with me,” she reminds him of her ‘policy’.
The candied record peaks in its final seconds when they run through the chorus one last time together. Enjoy the single above.
