Overall Meaning

The song "Reserve" by Nigerian artist MEI is a tribute to his current lifestyle of being at the top of his game. The song is about the feeling of being on top and having more than enough of everything that you could want, from the finest sauce to an endless supply of girls. The opening lines "The sauce wey I get dey drip just like mayo, e dey" and "The bar wey we get o e no go finish o, e dey" signify the abundance of opportunities and resources available to MEI.


MEI's confidence in his status is evident throughout the song, as he boasts about his endless access to everything he desires. He also acknowledges that his success has elevated him to a different level; he is in a world of his own where his position is unchallenged. "Your guy dey the bench o we dey the field o, hin dey, Hin dey reserve." This line is a reference to those who have not attained the same level of success and the resulting sense of pride that comes with knowing you're at the top.


The song's final lines, "I can't decide, I can't decide, Dem dey reserve, dem dey reserve," further solidify MEI's dominance. He has everything he could ever want or need, so much that he can't even decide what to do with it all. The constant refrain of "Dem dey reserve, dem dey reserve" reiterates the idea that MEI is in a different league, where everything is in abundance and reserved solely for him.
