One of my favourite artists released an album on October 8 and I must admit, it did not disappoint. ‘Eat ya veggies’ is a very odd title for Bbno$’s new album, but quite frankly, it does not surprise me. Many things that he does appear odd, but it really just builds anticipation with respect to where his ideas will take him in the future.
I would rate this album an 8/10. I do have a soft spot for his previous album, ‘Good Luck, Have Fun,’ which I highly recommend to get to know Bbno$’s sound, but there are still some amazing tunes on ‘Eat ya veggies’. I prefer the collaboration pieces on this album, but some of his solo stuff is pretty incredible as well.
Bbno$ is a Canadian rapper who had a big hit all over TikTok called “Lalala”. To say that I heard that song everywhere when it first came out, would be an understatement. I would describe him as a comedic rapper as the many lyrics in his songs are quite goofy. If you feel like listening to something a bit lighthearted and fun then his content is the perfect addition to your Monday morning queue.
With only 12 songs on this album, it did not take long to get through it. The album is only about an hour and a half long. It took me some time to really figure out how I wanted to rate these songs, but I finally got it.
Just to add, this is all my own opinion, so I encourage you to share your own opinions after listening to ‘Eat ya veggies’ yourself!
Now let’s get into my ranking of the songs from worst to the best.
Ranking of Songs: Worst to Best
This song must have been an afterthought to the album because it did not fit in. It seemed to have a lot of yelling. When it came on I thought that some other artist popped up randomly on Spotify, but I was mistaken. It does not compare to any of the other songs on this album, which is why I chose to place it at the bottom of my personal ranking.
When I first listened to this song, it seemed all over the place. I kept thinking, “why are there like five songs playing at once?” However, after listening to it a bit more, I can see what he was going for with the unique sound. Either way, it’s still not my favourite. I do like the play on the band ‘The Black Eyed Peas’ in the title.
3. check up
The moment in this song when he randomly starts talking is my favourite part. You will have to listen to the song to understand what I mean. I also like the end of the song, where the beat fades out randomly and then comes back in. While this song does have a good beat to it, I just do not see it as one of the better ones.
4. edamame (feat. Rich Brian)
This is one of the singles from the album. I liked it at first, I really did. I think I am just sick of it now because I listened to it one too many times. The beat in this song makes you want to get up and dance. I just cannot keep listening to it like some of the other songs on the album. I had never heard of Rich Brain before this song, but I can say that he held his own on the track. I keep forgetting, but I really should go listen to some of his other songs.
This one is good, do not get me wrong. It just did not stick out. It seems like it is just kind of there on the album, with nothing special to it. It is truly another classic tune that fits Bbno$’s character quite well.
6. u mad!
I was on the fence about this song at first because it seemed like the lyrics were overly simple. Now after listening to it tens of times, I cannot get enough of it. The unique electronic beat with the simple notes hitting at the right moments really brings it together. This could be a real hit song. I can see myself adding it to my party playlist.
This song just screams classic Bbno$ to me, especially the chorus. The beat and the way he raps along with it flows together so well. I cannot complain.
This may not seem like the most exciting song to some listeners, and they may question why I placed this song so high on my list. This song starts the album off in a great way. The funky tune in the back and Bbno$’ silky and oh so smooth voice is enough to make anyone want to bop their head to the beat. It also doesn’t start the album off too hard with intense rapping, but gives you just enough to give a taste of what is to come.
9. I remember
When I first heard this song, it really reminded me of another one of Bbno$’s songs, ‘Help Herself’. The vibes of these two songs gave me the same calm and chill feeling. It is a pretty unique sound, and definitely different to what I am used to hearing from him. But, it definitely works.
The music video for this song was just magical. Seeing Bbno$ dressed in drag was absolutely iconic. He really kills the vocals as well. When watching him work it, I couldn’t help being jealous of how good he looked. Like jeez, leave some for the rest of us. Having Rebecca Black on the track was pretty cool as well. I only remember her from her hit single ‘Friday,’ but it definitely seems like she has improved since then.
When Bbno$ and Yung Gravy collaborate on a song you just know it is going to be good. They always produce the best tunes and their friendship makes it even better. They are just two goofy guys whose energies align so well. This song set a good tone as the first single on the album, and had me quite excited for what was still to come. It is such a fun beat that makes me want to sway back and forth, and vibe.
There is absolutely no question that this is my favourite song on the album. When I first heard it, I could not help but feel so happy hearing Night Lovell’s voice. His voice is so soothing to me. I highly recommend checking out some of his other songs as well.. Honestly, I was quite surprised to see them collaborate because it seems like they each have a different sound. Nonetheless, it really did work.
