I'm a sucker for a hook by a female in a rap song. Case in point, Lucifer (Jay-Z), Diamonds Are Forever (Kanye West), Sunshine (Mos Def), Rose Garden (Shad).
I could probably go on, but I'll keep it short.
While running errands this week for work I had the fortune to listen to the wonderful radio stations that Halifax has to offer. This resulted in too much Ke$ha (seriously, what's with the $ as an s?), Katy Perry and Black Eyed Peas. The upside is that the radio also introduced me to:
Airplanes by B.o.B featuring Hayley Williams and Eminem
I'm not sure who this B.o.B guy is, but Hayley Williams is from Paramore, who I only associate with the boring, never ending, over-hyped saga known as Twillight since they had a song on one of the soundtracks. It was a terrible song so I quickly dismissed them. However she's great for singing this hook!
And then there's Eminem. The ever-angry rapper is back and despite the never-changing content of his songs I really enjoy his style.
All in all, I like it.
