Some of you called it. Produced by Will Simms (Pussycat Dolls' "React") and written by him, Philippe-Marc Anquetil ("Run For Your Life", "MORE"), Michelle Escoffery (All Saints' "Saints & Sinners") and Kumi, the track appeared on "WALK OF MY LIFE" as an album one.
This one is so much fun with a matching title to boot. It has so much going on with that chanty chorus, those little guitars accompanying it, the knocking as if the neighbours came to complain, the Rock Master Scott & the Dynamic Three sample and that feature. Oh god, that feature. Apparently it's David King, who toured with Kumi as a backing vocalist a couple of times. This feature is the only reason this got an 8 from me and not full marks. I mean, I don't really mind the guy, but he made the whole thing sound like a demo. And you're telling me that Kumi couldn't find anybody, anybody for a feature who could bring this to a whole other level? I don't believe you.
Like I need to explain what this one is about, dddd.
Drunk as rock and I do my thing
Everybody's next door, do you wanna go? Coming in
Air con's broke
Oh, I can't stand it
So stay in our wet t-shirts, you say?
Well, these things happen regularly
It feels like a funky day
For what it's worth, it's OK
So hottie with the body take me along
Sounds like a fun time.
Oh look, @Yeziirl (7,5) is putting scores into our mouths, "that guy is annoying… probably one of the cringiest Kumi’s songs due to this unnecessary featuring. If you don’t mind the guy, I would probably say it is like 8.5, but too bad…" We'll decide for ourselves, thanks.
I enjoyed @otenkiame's (8) commentary until the last part, "I dig this song. Don't care about that random guy either, because this just screams all kinda fun to me. I love the addition of party vocals for the hooks, and think Kuu sounds so natural and fun here! It just fits its title perfectly, and would make for a fun party song if I had any friends." I'll be your friend, boo.
@Sprockroster (8) showed his musical knowledge by noticing the smaple, "I would have liked more sample use here as it works well. Set that roof on fire."
@Music Is Life (10) had a blast to this one, "This is a bit of a banger to be honest. That chorus is extremely infectious, and I love that it opens the song. The verses make me wanna dance my ass off too. The guy’s verses is a lot of fun too."
And finally @Cutlery (10) thought that the feature worked perfectly, "Yeah, this is a big, dumb blast of fun! I don’t mind at all that Kuu isn’t singing for a substantial portion of the song because the random features just fit in place"
Kumi mainly performed this during the tour in support of the album and the performance was a lot of fun. She also looked snatched.
