Who knew songstress, Ibiyemi, could pull off such an amazing number. Having released very few singles to mild reception, this song “I would be” is a love song that talks about what will be in a marriage. She posits that the marriage can last longer and be more enjoyable if the two parties involved support each other every step of the way. She sings in English with  a mixture of her native dialect “Yoruba.”  She also featured  the talented alternative singer Dipo on it and no doubt, success, finesse and love are the set of words that can adequately describe this song “It would be.”
