I’ve given this a few listens. It’s an old, worn out type of R&B that we’ve heard before. It is walked over by the likes of Frank Ocean or Miguel. The instrumental is so mashed together. It sounds very amaterish. It sprinkles a few horns throughout the song, which tries to give it a classic feel.
I love how the song changes tempo like three times. Catches me off guard, and maybe not a good thing. The other negative thing about this song (and I never thought I’d say this) is Jay-Z’s verse. LIke, really? A slow flow with mediocre lyrics…
“All black at the white shoes
White shoes at the black shows
Green car for the cuban linx
Gotta sit back and enjoy the light show”
This isn’t what Jay-Z is known for.
Oh well, I’m really excited for his new album anyways…
