[Pop] “Dress On” – Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake

Ladies and gentlemen… he’s baaaaaaaaack!

After 7 (very) long years of hibernation, Justin Timberlake has finally made his much anticipated come back. With the release of “Suit & Tie” earlier this year with the one and only H.O.V. (aka Jay-Z, my man), it is one of many to-be hits off the 20/20 Experience album.

Although there was some backlash about “Suit & Tie” not being “Justin-enough” with too much of a different, new/old school mix, this next little diddy should reaffirm your faith in the true Justified experience.

So wait until you hear “Dress On.” This is actually a bonus track off of JT’s 2013 album – and it will take you back to the days of Future Sex LoveSound, where you’ll hear a good amount of influence from his side kick Timbaland. It’s the type of JT/Timbo combination that will make you say “ahhhhh, now that’s the real Justin that we know!”

A few words of warning: be prepared to be seduced.

[Top 40] “Thrift Shop” – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Wanz

Macklemore-Ryan-Lewis-400x300

If you have yet to hear this song, please remove the rock you’ve been sitting under. Kidding! But seriously.

Thrift Shop was brought onto the scene by newcomers Macklemore, a rapper hailing from Seattle and his producer Ryan Lewis. This song, which is about shopping, is a fifth and final single from their album The Heist. And yes, it’s actually hilarious. The chorus goes something like this:

“I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is f*cking awesome.”

Then there is a reference to R. Kelly’s bed sheets smelling like urine and then something about your grammy, your aunty, your momma and your mammy. A classic really, which still made its way to #31 on Ryan Seacrest’s Top 40 charts and the Billboard Top 100. Word.

What could be more entertaining than two white boys spitting rap, riding around on a bicycle and bearing $20 pimp jackets?

Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
