Lay Your Weapons Down by K Koke ft Rita Ora (Review)

Review of Lay Your Weapons Down by K Koke ft Rita Ora

‘Lay Down Your Weapons’ is essentially another British version of ‘Love The Way You Lie‘ (the first being Professor Green‘s track ‘Read All About It’). The acoustic version is, in all ways, better than the original. Rita Ora has more personality and emotion in her voice as you can hear her live voice without heavy production; the guitars and drums are softened into a lighter track which also makes it more pleasant to listen to.

K Koke also shines on the acoustic set as he isn’t lost with battling sounds that came about on the original. His live rap voice is allied by the constant acoustic drums and his flow is undeniably there.  Compared to the original, he keeps up better with the drums also, and this makes his flow even better on the beat

Its easy to hear that the lightness of the instruments go hand-in-hand with Rita‘s husky voice and Koke‘s rapping style. If I had a choice as to which one I would download, the acoustic is much better. Both Rita Ora and K Koke do not lose their power behind production as it is very soft and it all binds together much better than the full version.
