"Delight" is a single by Terrain rapper and producer DJ Crow. The song was released on August 9, 2010 as the third and final single from Crow's second studio album, Dance on Sunday (2010) by Music Industry. It includes guest appearances from fellow rappers Omar Grest and Young Wade, whom provide individual verses. The song was produced by DJ Crow and written by the three artists. Lyrically the song consists of a confessional tone towards a romantic interest. The artists rap over a slow luxurious-feeling beat intended for a mainstream appeal.

Commercially the song performed well, peaking at number 6 in UnitedTerra and number 4 in the USA, becoming Crow's first top 10 single in that territory.

Background[edit]

In February 2010, DJ Crow met up with Omar Grest at the "North End Music Parade" and they decided to make a song together. During the middle of the month, the lyrics was complete and so was the production, but DJ Crow was not satisfied, he felt that "something was missing" from the track. He thought that it needed another collaboration, so he decided to contact Young Wade on Chitter and asked "yo, Young Wade, wanna collab on my new track? It's got Omar on it." - an hour later Wade replied "sure, i'll call you later". They talked on the phone and met up in the studio, where Young Wade wrote his verse and added a few drum and guitar beats to the music. The final cut was put onto the album, and they decided to release it as a single in early August.

On July 20, 2010, DJ Crow, Omar Grest and Young Wade met up again for the radio premiere of "Delight" on TBC Radio 1. Many listeners had tuned in for the premiere. DJ Crow had said during the premiere:

The track, in my opinion, is perfect. A great collaboration with Omar and Wade, it's just amazing. "Delight" has a rap-vibe but also has that classy and calm edge on it. The idea of the lyrics and name come from being very happy and giving people great pleasure. It's gonna be big.
 

Soon after, "Delight" released and become a huge hit and success. It was certified Gold in the UnitedTerra and Silver/Gold elsewhere too. Grest has commented on the success; "Man, it was cool working with Crow, you know, I never knew a teenager could come out of the blue like that and create such tunes. It was great working with Young Wade too - both of them got talent."

(Omar Grest)

(Verse 1)

So far I see you in my eyes
Only for one time
Splittin these bars like you've never, ever heard em
On something I believe in.

(Pre-Chorus)

Come on, don't fail
It just a matter of time.
You stay here with me
Everywhere I find

The one and only
Princess in the city
I am Prince Charming
Am I so sweet, darling

(Chorus) So feel me with Delight (4x)

(DJ Crow and Young Wade instrumental.)

Delight (7x)
So feel me with Delight

(DJ Crow and Young Wade instrumental.)

Where did I find you this close
Only for time
And I just don't know every single little voice
I hear dancing in my head.

(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)

(Pre-Chorus)

(DJ Crow and Young Wade instrumental.)

Critical reception[edit]

Raymond Vegas of "Music Spy" gave the song a very positive review:

My delight, my delight, it's just so catchy. The genius raps. The beat. Crow has struck another hit again. I never would of thought that DJ Crow would be working with Omar Grest and Young Wade, three amazing rappers all in one tune. The production is so original I haven't heard it anywhere else. I have no negative comments on this track - the lyrics is amazing; "splittin these bars like you've never, ever heard em", "The one and only Princess in the City", and there's more where that came from. This is a track everybody just has to buy, and I'll be surprised if it doesn't go number 1 either. It just goes to show you what a teenager can do. 5/5 stars

Jacob Malcomex of "NoteBlock" had praised the song as well:

Finally, once again, Omar Grest is singing in the song. Really awesome to hear his voice. 5/5 stars

Music video[edit]

The music video was shot in the last week of July 2010 and was directed by Yusei, as most of DJ Crow's videos has been directed by. The video was completed and uploaded to PengTube. The video has DJ Crow, Omar Grest and Young Wade mostly around a cracked floor (as seen in the single cover) and them singing live on stage. The second half has them all in separate dimensions, rewinding their day to when it was delightful and when it was grim.
