French Montana’s latest release, “Bad Bitch” is off his latest mixtape, Mac & Cheese: The Appetizer, his full length album, Mac & Cheese: The Album is scheduled to be released sometime this year.
Look, I don’t know what to say. French’s lyrical skills are lacking, and at times the song’s beat seems overproduced, yet, every time it comes on the radio I’m like:
How I imagine Whitney Houston would react if she found out someone was sampling her hit song, “I Wanna Dance with Somebody”:
DJ Khaled’s latest single gathers together some of the biggest names in hip-hop, and the result is “Hold You Down,” a song more R&B than Khaled’s typical collaborations. The track is off his upcoming album, I’ve Changed a Lot.
Entertainment Weekly, a site known for their no holds barred journalistic approach, recently asked DJ Khaled “what exactly do you do?” (Finally). He replied:
“It’s not a lot of people, really. DJ Khaled’s obviously one of the biggest DJ’s in the world. DJ Khaled’s also one of the biggest producers in the world. DJ Khaled is also one of the biggest executives in the world. DJ Khaled’s also one of the biggest A&R’s in the world. DJ Khaled also has a management company called We the Best. Also CEO of his own record company called We the Best. A publishing company called We the Best. DJ Khaled is a brand. DJ Khaled is a mogul.”
Do any of these DJ Khaled’s not speak in the third person? Maybe they could give a more satisfying answer.
In anticipation of his upcoming album, Jeremih has dropped new music featuring rapper YG. The DJ Mustard produced beat samples the 1992 song, “Rhythm is a Dancer” by SNAP! which contains what one critic described as the worst lyric of all time, with the line “I’m as serious as cancer when I say rhythm is a dancer”.
…we’ve come along way since that 2008 article, since this song contains the lyric, “she wanna’ suck my dick, and I’m cool with it” and no one bats an eye.
Ludacris’s latest single features Wiz Khalifa and Jeremih singing a rendition of the hook from Aqua’s 1997 pop song, “Barbie Girl.”
The more time passes, the more people speak nostalgically about the 90s and some of the wonderful products of that time: Dunkaroos, pogs, zebra pants, Lisa Frank everything, Windows 95, Furbies, JNCO jeans, Got Milk ads, Boy Meets World, Beanie Babies…
…and yet, the song “Barbie Girl” isn’t one of them.
