Tracks: 11 (+4 Bonuses)
Features: Olamide, Ycee, Ayo Jay, Banky W, Falz, Simi, Seyi Shey, Wande Coal, Willy Paul and Lady Jay.
Producers: Magik, Studio Magic, HOD, Adey, Kush
To be honest BOJ is one artiste I have never really appreciated, I am not saying he isn’t good, I mean put him on any song let him take the hook or bridge, mehn he will murder it but talking about a full song I have never had that time to listen to him that well because I feel for his kind of sound to remain smooth and groovy it has to be something short.
This will be his first album and he titled this on Magic, so without wasting more of your time let’s see what the magical about the album.

Magic is the first song on the album and it was produced by Magik, who is responsible for most of the production of the songs. Immediately I listened to this song every doubt I had concerning BOJ being a hook-artiste disappeared, this is what I call sweet melodious music. What a perfect way to start an album, the rating will be 9/10

Antidote ft. Ycee is the next track and BOJ picked up from where he left off, as he also came in strong and Ycee came in to murder the song totally. The Adey and Magik produced song will have 9/10 rating. 

Few seconds into this song, Happy, I thought it was Korede Bello but when his verse came in it turn out to be Ajo Jay. Happy is another brilliant song from BOJ as he once again didn’t disappoint and Ajo Jay also came through on the Magik produced track, the rating will be 8/10.

Gbe Soke is his second sole song on album and I have to say he nailed beyond my expectations and that production from Magik is truly magical. The rating for this song will be 8/10

Balance is another standalone song produced by Kush and Magik and once again BOJ was on fire on this, this rating will be 9/10, this is kind of song that will sweeten the soul, very melodious and the production is top notch. 

Corporate features Falz and this one seems a bit different from what we have been listening to, as the tempo was taken up a little and once again the production is dope. Credit to HOD and Magik for the brilliant job they did on this as the rating will be 9/10.
Wednesday features Seyi Shey and this sounds more like a highlife song and once again BOJ didn’t do badly at all as he took us back to the slow tempo sound we have been listening to and Seyi Shey also came through with her vocals. The rating of this song will be 8/10. 

Molade is the 8th track on this album and you can tell from the beginning that BOJ went all highlife on this and all I can say is wow, he killed mehn. BOJ took us back to the 90s on this one, giving us those highlife sounds that made much waves in the 90s, and to have made it sound so refreshing even in this century just make the song more beautiful. The Magik-produced song will have an amazing 10/10 rating.

On Nowo once again the tempo was increased as more base drums were added. This song featured Banky W. Mr W didn’t dull at all as he did what he knows how to do best, the rating will be 8/10.

Beautiful Lady featuring Lady Jay is another song I personally like on this album and if I am not being sentimental it is one of the top 3 songs on this album. From the vocals of BOJ to that of Lady Jay and the dope production once again coming from Magik, everything about this song sweetens the soul abeg. The rating will be 10/10

Aisha featuring Wande Coal is the 11th song on this album and this was produced by Studio Magic. This was a very different sound from what we have been listening to, it is an up-tempo reggae song, those songs we also call galala. Wande Coal really came through on this and BOJ too wasn’t pushed aside. The rating will be a perfect 10.

When this album dropped I was very sceptical listening to it but I am very glad I did, this album reminds of Show Dem Camp's Palmwine Music album, the sounds in this album are nothing but magically as it is melodious to the ear and sweetening to the soul, I will say this is some soul music right here, thumps up for BOJ. The total rating will be 8.9/10.
