Sweet melodies that won’t fade, Linda by Rema and Chris Evans is a tale of love or work debate that portrayed a story affecting most couples. Its a tale of conflicting loyalties; should one spend more time looking for money or satisfy the emotional needs of the lover.
With the youth unemployment rate estimated at over 80%, this song resonated with the daily struggles of most Ugandan couples.
Rema plays the love thirsty lover craving for the husband’s attention, time and presence to quench her seemly empty love pit.
On the other hand, Chris Evans in his trademark husky voice played the lover that is trapped in the cycle of tireless hard work to provide for the family, at the expense of his lover’s demands.
The beauty of this song is not only the strong message but the contrasting styles of the two singers narrating a couple’s pain while making it a sweet sound for the ears.
The soft zouk bed gave the song a smooth sail from the start to finish. This is a kind of song that won’t fade; as long as love and money is here … and its here to stay.
