Review

Menarik sekali bagaimana K’Naan ingin mempertahankan keberadaannya di blantika musik global pasca ‘Wavin’ Flag’. Menghasilkan lagu-lagu bersama artis lain sepertinya ide yang cukup ampuh baginya. Terhitung beberapa karya musik yang dihasilkan kerap menyandingkan nama artis asal Somalia ini dengan artis yang sudah lebih dahulu tenar. Adam Levine (’Bang Bang’) dan Keane (’Stop For A Minute’). Dan kini bersama Nelly Furtado dirinya berdendang ‘Is Anybody Out There‘ yang diambil dari albumnya yang berjudul “More Beautiful Than Silence”. Nama K’Naan dan Nelly Furtado ternyata bukan pertama kalinya bersama dalam sebuah karya musik, karena kedua telah lebih dahulu gabung untuk proyek amal buat Haiti di tahun 2010 dan juga di lagu ‘Going Away’ sebagai duet pertama mereka. Dan yang kali ini adalah single yang benar adanya berformulasi hit!

Formula tersebut hadir dalam pembagian andil verse rap oleh yang cowok dan bagian hook diserahkan kepada yang cewek. Alunan musik hip-hop yang berpadu dengan alternatif menjadi sajian musiknya. Voila. You can dance to it and sure you can sing along too. Tapi sebenarnya kalau kita tilik dari lirik yang ada, lagu ini justru jatuh pada sebuah kondisi yang mengetuk hati untuk berempati Itu tercetus gamblang lewat verse-nya, dimana celoteh K’Naan mengenai seorang cewek dan seorang cowok yang butuh cinta dalam hidupnya. Bukan hanya sebagai penyempurna, tapi juga memperbaiki apa yang salah.

Somehow I found this song resembles to B.o.B’s ‘Airplanes’. Meskipun tidak se-gloomy lagu tersebut iramanya, tapi gaya nge-rap K’Naan yang menimbulkan kesan itu ada. Tapi kemiripan tak lantas menyeret pada konsep buruk. Karena sebenarnya bagaimana penerimaan pendengar terhadap masing-masing single yang terpenting. Dan berdasarkan easy listening-nya, ‘Is Anybody Out There’ punya potensi like-able yang luar biasa besar. Dengan demikian, lagu ini juga punya kesempatan untuk menjadi hit!

Song Lyrics

[Nelly Furtado]
I don’t wanna be left
In this war tonight
Am i alone in this fight?
Is anybody out there?

Don’t wanna be left left in this world behind
Say you’ll run to my side

[K’Naan]
Something ’bout Mary
Never won a pageant
Never felt pretty
Never looked like Cameron
Diaz was her last name
Always been abandoned
Keep your head up

Baby girl this is your anthem
There goes Hannah
Showin’ off her banner
Rocking that crown
Make them boys go bananas
When you’re insecure about yourself
It’s a fact
You can point a finger
But there’s three pointing back
I can see her crying out, yeah
Is there anybody out there?

She’s really counting on your love
Still struggling uphill
But you act like you don’t care
Right now she could really use a shoulder
Hanging onto the edge til it’s over
She’s crying for your love tonight
Loneliest heart to survive, she said

[Nelly Furtado]
I don’t wanna be left
In this war tonight
Am i alone in this fight?
Is anybody out there?

Don’t wanna be left left in this world behind
Say you’ll run to my side
Is anybody out there? yeah, yeah, yeah

Is anybody out there?
(somebody, anybody)

[K’Naan]
His name was Adam
When his mom had him
Dad was a phantom never took a look at him
Grew up mad and antisocial

Hated outdoors, always in playing madden
Adam was lonely
Drugs were the only
Way out of his own life
Now he’s slowly losing his fire
Close to retire
With one last hope he puts his arms up higher
I can see him crying out, yeah
Is anybody out there?

He’s really counting on your love
Still struggling uphill
But you act like you don’t care
Right now he could really use a shoulder
Hanging onto the edge til it’s over
He’s crying for your love tonight
Loneliest heart to survive, he said

[Nelly Furtado]
I don’t wanna be left
In this war tonight
Am i alone in this fight?
Is anybody out there?

Don’t wanna be left left in this world behind
Say you’ll run to my side
Is anybody out there?

[bridge]
If you feel the way i feel
Like you’ve been talking to yourself
Well this one’s for everyone who’s felt invisible
Lonely in a crowded room
Searching for someone like you
Can’t do it all alone (no one can baby)
Can’t do it all alone (no one should baby)
Is anybody out there?
(somebody, anybody)
Is anybody out there?
I’m right here for your
Is anybody out there?

[outro]
I don’t wanna be left
In this war tonight
Am i alone in this fight?
Is anybody out there?

Don’t wanna be left left in this world behind
Say you’ll run to my side
Is anybody out there? yeah, yeah, yeah
I don’t wanna do it all alone
I need your love to take me home
No one said you should be all alone
I’m right here
Is anybody out there?
