Eiminem’s new single from his upcoming Marshall Mathers LP2 album came out recently. It’s always refreshing to hear him bring something new out, even if it’s a small part in someone else’s song. I think Em is back to form in this single. He samples Billy Squire’s The Stroke. It works perfectly. I just heard it a few times the past few day’s and it’s quickly become one of my favorite songs of this year.
I first the heard Eminem‘s distinct rap as I was half listening to the radio a few day’s ago. I looked at the song title on my SiriusXM and I saw ‘ My Life – .50 Cent, Eminem, Adam Levine. I was taken aback for a second, and had to rewind the song. Now after listening to it a few times since, at first I was sort of disappointed with Fitty’s opening rap, but then he did pick it up in his second one. Em’s is as alway’s good, and I guess, it’s not so weird with Maroon 5‘s Adam Levine doing the hook, as Eminem has done collaborations with Taylor Swift and Dido in the past. All in all is a good song, and it’s nice to see .50 back.
Ah, good old Paramore. Although, this isn’t old Paramore. This is a different sound, and it’s a little reminiscent of early 2000’s pop-rock, like No Doubt.
Paramore’s Now is the first single off their new album Paramore, and it has been stuck in my head since I first listened to it last night. It’s actually a really good song. The lyrics have meaning, the guitar is crazy, and it doesn’t really hurt that I love Hayley Williams.
She can do no wrong, in my eyes.
Except that crazy hairstyle she rocked in the music video for B.O.B’s Airplanes… That was… Interesting.
Anyway, here’s the audio released by FueledByRamen, hope you enjoy the song!
