@@@ Pusha T: If You Know You Know (Def Jam, 2018) The lead single off Pusha T’s new recording which is produced by Kanye ‘Sunken Place’ West who did an ill bitch thing with the cover art by purchasing the rights to a picture of Whitney Houston’s bathroom. I want to shit on this track due to recent Trump blowing antics by Kanye but the sonics are hot, he really overshadows Pusha T.’s microphone work. I checked out the second track The Games We Play and to my ears the vibe here is hip hop rock star. Both of these dudes are pretty ill bitches with the slinging and the Trump dick licking and that ridiculous slavery comment, but hot sounds is hot sounds.
@@@ A Boogie wit da Hoodie: Way Too Fly (Atlantic, 2018) We are all up in the summer jams, bitches and Boogie wit da Hoodie hops on the reggaeton/Caribbean style game with this single from the Apple hot tracks section. It’s a booty tune, he’s all up in the ladies’ business, he’s at the club and he’s got his loverboy on but I don’t super feel it. He’s a vampire but he don’t bite, well that pretty much explains the power of the track it’s not much more than a vibe and a sound. Aka going through the motions.
@@@ Taylor Swift: Delicate (Sawyr and Ryan Teddy Remix) (Big Machine, 2018) Regular readers know I’m all up in the Tay Tay business. She is the ice queen every neo Nazi is hard for. F’real. If you have half a brain you will realize that Swift’s last record was a bit of a stale turd where she tried to transform herself from a pop money making machine to club hottie/sex queen. She’s about as sexy as wet cardboard. This remix is pretty good and does a better job of what her original record aspired to. Oh well, better late than ever. It’s still not super hot but the sounds make more sense than what I remember hearing. It’s not a hot beach bomb, it’s more a biscuit that came out of the oven half an hour ago. She is trying so hard to be hot it’s a dick wilter for sure.
