SONG REVIEW: Zwady – Go Gyal (Soca 2020)

Go Gyal! Zwady sends this uplifting and encouraging message through his song ‘Go Gyal’ to every girl and woman.

Penned by Zwady himself and popular Dominican poet, Delroy Williams, Go Gyal breathes fresh air of enlightenment into an industry tarnished with the stains of misogyny, objectification and over sexualization of women.

Go Gyal encourages women to “stand firm and strong” against all odds, showing “them” the power of the “super woman” within. Indeed, this song reinforces the power of music and musicians to promote positive vibes to the youths in a manner that is palatable and consistent with trending genres.

The irony that’s, perhaps, very easy to miss is the dichotomy whereby the term ‘gyal’ is often used in a derogatory manner but certainly not so in this case. Culturally, ‘gyal’ may be seen as a reference to a female who, in the particular context, is not most worthy of a more uplifting reference. Think of a statement like “What happen to dat GYAL deh nuh?”.  Notwithstanding any prevailing negative connotation, Zwady doesn’t fail to elevate the ‘Gyal’ to the pedestal of adoration and respect where all women should be placed.

Go Gyal is marked by syncopation characteristic of groovy soca and is the artistic masterpiece of Dylan ‘ProducerDlo’ Lowe. The irregular pulsations of the bass resonates sweetly with the inherent Caribbean rhythm and beat that runs in our DNA, thus inciting just the right amount of gyration. ProducerDlo has been rising in the background of quite a few favorites over the last few years as a young producer and graphic designer. Have you seen the African Queen who adorns the most appropriate artwork? Yup, it is ProducerDlo’s design. Good going!

BouyonNation definitely recommends Go Gyal, without a doubt!
