Check out the songs I’m listening to this week:
Artist: Missy Elliot
Best Line: I’m like kak-a-rak-a-rak-rak-a-rak-a-rak/Make a new track, make ’em fall on they crack
Why Listen: Um, it’s Missy’s brilliant comeback. And your new groove anthem. If you haven’t heard it before now, it’s time to get with the program.
Best Line: Neighbors yelling at me like, “You need to slow down.”/Going thirty-eight, Dan, chill the fuck out
/Mow your damn lawn and sit the hell down
Why Listen: You got a bit of nostalgia, a fantastic groove, and lyrics that’ll have you laughing the whole song long. And of course, a brilliant music video with some great dance moves for you up in the club. Thanks, Mack.
Song: Take It Easy
Best Line: Black sky, keeping it light/All the time you stay away/Cold here, it’s never enough
Why Listen: This start has that powerful, soulful, Adele-esque drive and builds with awesome drums and gets a bit rock and roll near the climax. I’m a fan.
