Songs of the Week #3
I’ve been putting off writing in favor of professional crastination, but no more! This is technically week 5 or 6, but “mah blog mah rulez” - I’m going to call it week 3.
Boasty (feat. Idris Elba) by Wiley, Stefflon Don & Sean Paul #
The bounce on this song is absolutely fantastic. This is now my new favorite Jamaican hip-hop/rap beat, and Idris Elba is fantastic in whatever he does.
Dance Off by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis from “This Unruly Mess I’ve Made” #
I came across this while searching for more Idris Elba (after Boasty), and it’s quite a charged song. Love the lyrics, love the beat.
I Need Dubs by Lil’ Romeo #
A smooth song. I’m adding this to my “Pimping” playlist.
You’ll Never Hear From Me Again by David Schwartz from Arrested Development #
Arrested Development has been a long time favorite of mine in TV sitcoms, and the rest of the soundtrack is great as well. While I’m sure this song was hilarious in the context it featured in, it’s actually a good R&B/Soul song on its own.
