American Boy

Remember this song? Wow, I am actually kind of doing a Throwback Thursday post here. Ok, this works. Now, to begin my commentary/critique of this song, I have to mention that Estelle (the singer) is British, and that just this knowledge alone is enough to explain her fascination and desire to acquire an “American Boy”. Hence, the title of the song. Basically this song is about how Estelle loves American Boy’s due to the different traits, stereotypes  and visual accompaniments that come with them. This is completely normal guys. I mean, I love Italian Boys for the same reason, but that’s a post for another day. Back to the song. Kanye West is featured on this track and as usual, his rap kind of makes the song…better. Just a bit in this case though because this song is good in itself. This song is…different, but unique. Her voice is soft which complements the soft R&B beat in the background. The lyrics actually make sense! There is a point to this song, even though the point isn’t amazing or anything, but its not just about sexy time. Its a fun song; I like it. It was liked enough to win a Grammy so, I hope that you like it too, and hopefully find a cute, fashionable, stunning, tall, model-esque, Tour Guide Type, dressed in Fur, American Boy (who lives in NY or LA).
