I love everything about this. Bey saying “thot.” Bey saying “Onika.” Nicki calling out MJ’s doctor. Nicki starting to feel the flow when she speeds up and spits about “eat-the-cookie-face,” a perfect hat tip to Jay’s “Eat the cake, Anna Mae” line from “Drunk in Love.” Bey FINALLY addressing the elevator incident. Two strong talented black women declaring that they’re royalty and no one can disagree. Today is a great day.
So I’m super into Robyn these days (and by these days I mean always). I love her collabs with Röyksopp and now they’re going on tour and releasing a mini album!! All of which results in AWESOME songs like this, which I’ve been listening to on repeat for about 2.5 weeks. I suggest you do the same.
So yes, that is “Bound 2” by Kanye, but with beefed up bass and drums. And I am LOVING this remix. Actually, I’m not sure if this counts as a remix because this version was re-recorded with a different singer to replace the Charlie WIlson vocals. Whatever, I love it. The video is fun and is pretty much a visual depiction of what I want my summer to be. Unfortunately, it’s not on Spotify so I’m putting it here so I remember it exists.
(I’m compiling my Summer Jamz 2014 playlist today, so expect more #jotd’s. Also taking suggestions.)
