  1. I think this might be the first thing Drake has ever done that I have actually liked.
     
  2. Take Care with Rihanna?

    (His delivery is a big part of why I don’t like him. I also don’t like a lot of his lyrics.)

  5. Going back to my Des'ree writeup, the main reason I didn't include the album is because What's Your Sign? is so incredibly awful that I would have felt bad making you all rate it and I would have felt worse if any of my faves ended up with a lower score than it.

    What does one even do with lyrics like this?

    What's your sign? Do you know?
    Let me guess? You're Scorpio?
    What's your rising? Where's your moon?
    Scorpios are pretty cool. See I'm a Sag
    So they say. I'm a butterfly, I like to play
    I'm always aiming into the sky
    I point my arrows, extremely high

    'Cause everyone has a sign
    Whether supernatural or divine
    Believe or not, if you're so inclined
    'Cause in this great big universe
    We're the stars on earth

    See the man, over there. He's a Leo,
    Check his hair. Virgo eyes.Aries smile
    I like the Leo. Check his style
    When the night is good and clear

    I hear the whisper in my ear
    If you follow the northern Star
    You will always know just where you are

    We are stars doo doot, doo doot, doo yeah.
    We are stars doo doo doot, doo doot,
    Doo yeah. We are stars. 'cause in this great big universe
    We're stars on earth

    So what's your sign. Let me guess? I dunno
    I do confess. What's your rising? Where's your moon?
    I dunno, but you're still cool!

    [repeat inanities from earlier in the song until someone switches it off]
     
  6. The song is automatically cancelled because it has no mention of Libra in the lyrics.

  7. It's a good thing Toni had the taste to dedicate a whole album to it.

    I see what you mean! It's missing "work work work work work work, you see me I be work, work, work, work, work, work, you see me do me dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, here's something 'bout that work, work, work, work, work, work".

    Also how can you hate on Drake when he gave us this:

    You used to call me on my cell phone
    Late night with your canine love
     
  9. Thank you for summarising my two least favourite Rihanna and Drake songs respectively.

    I'd take What's Your Sign? over either of them.

  10. We now have seven ballots, and the seventh one is a doozy.

    Three more until the leaderboard update...
     
  11. IS THIS ME?!?!?

    (But thank you for voting x)
     
  14. I also did enjoy the mentioned songs here but not Exhale so much.

    I did actually vote here in your rate on day 1 for all that matters.

    Full Moon
     
  15. Well, Exhale isn't in this rate, so it sounds like you've enjoyed all the songs you've heard from this rate so far. Maybe you should vote in the rate after all.

  18. I will be getting started on this song list over the weekend. So many extras are giving me anxiety but I remember I did pjsc, PJOPs and Pj00s all at once and was fine so this will be too!
     
  19. Wait. I want in. Mised is one of my favorite albums of all time, Whitney's my favorite singer of all time, and I love Never Say Never. This gives me an excuse to dive into Monica too.

  20. Excellent! Looking forward to your scores.
