Back in November, will.i.am released this song (and video) as the lead single from the expanded version of his fourth studio album #willpower. I heard it on the radio yesterday, so I guess it has “arrived.”
Something about will.i.am rapping lyrics like, “She give me IQ, that mean she get a-head,” and “And now I’m banging hoes in the Continental,” makes me uncomfortable, probably because I find him about as sexy as banjo music or German audiobooks.
Mike WiLL Made It is the producer behind many of the biggest songs from the past two years, and for his first lead single, he called in some favors from Miley and Juicy J.
Miley raps (yes raps) the chorus, “I’m in the club, high off purp, with some shades on. Tatted up, mini skirt with my Js on.”
I assume Miley’s wearing Js because she’s so high that she needed more stability than heels could provide. No self-respecting female goes to the club in sneakers.
Fresh off her VMA performance (which everyone really loved and said nothing negative about) Miley dropped the video for her latest single, “Wrecking Ball.” The video features Miley riding a wrecking ball naked. Since this is the first time I’ve ever seen anyone ride a wrecking ball, I’m going to assume that’s the correct way to do it. I mean… have you seen any other way?
Although I regret to inform her that she is making out with the sledgehammer incorrectly.
After months of anticipation, Miley dropped the lead single for her upcoming album (due out this fall). “We Can’t Stop” is Miley’s version of a summer jam, but the song is a musical contradiction: The lyrics are about partying hard, which I’m all for – but the song’s clunky rhythm is not something I want to party to… Therefore, is “We Can’t Stop” the perfect song for casually doing cocaine?
And if you’re judging Miley for the song’s drug references, just remember: she can’t be tamed.
