    It is some of the best what I consider "pop hip hop" out right now. Wale's latest album is impressive and that comes from a serious hip hop head who turns his nose up at most things on the radio or what is considered mainstream.

    Well, I don't much care for the Wale guy rapping, but I decided I needed to look up the guy singing the chorus, Sam Dew.. because that's legit. Cloudeater is the only other thing I see him in, kind of experimental-ish music, does he do any r&b? He should.

    More stuff like



    All the other Cloudeater stuff was experimental/rockish stuff. Guess I'll have to look further.

    I was about to post that one for you.

    That is how and Sam Dew and Wale met up I believe. Wale remade that track on his album and replaced Dew with Lloyd.

    Love that song too. Original and Wale version.

    Terrible video though.

    Give this one a shot.

    lol @ the Sabotage remix, I listened to part of that yesterday and SWORE the backup vocals were a chick, and then I see the video. Still, I don't much care for the rapper, Sam Dew is where it's at.

    From the early 90s. When a female singer did not have to be hot to get a record deal:

    Adele (sp?) isn't hot at all and she may be the most popular female musician out there right now

    Touché

    Well, I guess the world just loves a fat white British girl who sounds like a fat black American girl when she sings ;)

    Early 90s was kinda special though. Girls actually tried to tone down their hotness.

    Speaking of which:

    One of my favorite all time videos. Blues Traveler Run Around. Pretty boys bouncing around on stage while the real band played backstage behind a curtain. Lead singer John Popper is a rather ugly man and, back then, was horribly overweight.

    PS. The girl in the 'Dorothy' costume always did it for me.
