Just like jollof rice in a yellow cooler at an owambe party, the groovy song recalls images of the good times. The "See Finish" crooner admits that the "Yellow Cooler" is a "happy pill that brightens up the room and brings the feeling of elevation from within." The Jad O-produced song was mixed & mastered by Syn X, and it features elements of palm wine music in the instrumentals which makes the song a melodic fit for a celebratory mood, “Let’s make a toast to the good life now, say mi story don change,” Dapo sings. "Yellow Cooler" is a toast to the good life and a reminder to live in the moment and enjoy the fleeting good times.
