Surprised there isn't more long-winded 1-star reviews on this page. It's probably a sensible and healthy thing to do as dwelling on the awfulness of such a song can make feel like they're staring into the abyss and putting the energy into enjoying something else like an eclair or a day at the zoo. Plus you guys are lucky enough to not have this get to #1 in your country this year, sadly I cannot say the same thing for mine.
There's already enough point-by-point detailing as to how awful this song is on the internet regardless, so instead of mentioning anything else, this review will only focus on the part in the first verse when Chris Brown, in the character of Lil Dicky, has woken up in his body. He is so thrilled about the fact that he, a white man, has woken up in the body of a black man because he now has a chance to get away with saying the, you guessed it, "n-word" and naturally mentioning of the "n-word" becomes... well, of course it does.
There's so much to unpack there. Lil Dicky, the new favourite i r o n i c c o m e d y white rapper who's primary claim to fame is making h i l a r i o u s p i s s - t a k e s of stereotyical rap music beloved by white people who are still absolutely terrified of listening to any rap music they deem too "threatening" (in fact, they basically don't respect the genre at all full stop), fulfilling the fantasy of every edgy white dude's dreaming of being "allowed" to say THAT word, through the means of Chris Brown's body, a man who's awfulness surely needs no words at this points. It's so monumentally detestable that I suddenly feel the urge to call every member of Hoobastank and personally apologise to them for ever calling their biggest hit the "worst song ever". To say nothing of the rest of this song, this moment will probably remain etched into my memory as the single worst moment in a pop song to ever exist unless I somehow manage to discover something even more terrifying. For now, though I don't wanna know. I'm just gonna have a lie down and maybe listen to some Young Thug to heal my mind.Laatst gewijzigd: 19/12/2018 12:57
