Feds Watching

Feds Watching is a song by rapper 2Chainz featuring, and obviously written by Pharell. This song is interesting as it moves away from 2Chainz regular style of music and ventures more into not only Pharell’s style, but more of a reggae fusion. More than the hilariously misplaced lyrics, the beat is extremely catchy and something that I can find myself dancing too.

One thing I appreciated about this music video was its ability to lean more towards appreciating the beauty of the dark-skinned woman compared to objectifying her. The video features many beautiful and gorgeous black women who are dressed in a more model-esque fashion. They are not appealing to a mans gratification, like in other rap videos, but they are simply just enjoying themselves in the sun at a pool house in each others company…and 2 Chainz company of course. It was refreshing to see a different depiction for once.

Notable Mention: My favourite line in this entire song has to be, “I just got some pants made out of Snake Skin”, when in actuality (and the music video) he does not wear snake skin pants. Must say I was truly disappointed about this.

 

Blurred Lines

I AM JUST IN LOVE WITH ROBIN THICKE OK? Ever since I heard “Lost Without You”, I have been totally in love with this man. His voice is beautiful, smooth, and just so sensual. I just love him. This song, Blurred Lines, produced by Pharrell, is a cool jazz, R&B track that has a vintage feel to it. You can imagine yourself dancing to this in a jazz club or in a sophisticated New York type of dance place. The addition of T.I. to the track was good, I liked it. I liked this song. #Thicke
