Music Recommendation – Single – Kid Ink ft. Trey Songz, Juicy J, 2 Chainz, and Chris Brown, “Show Me” (Remix)

show-me-remixIn case the original “Show Me” did not have enough Trey Songz, Juicy J, or 2 Chainz for you, the remix should definitely do its job. I really admire this remix in that it overs a solid rap verse from Juicy J (in fact one of his best), sensual RnB from Trey Songz, and an alternate piece from Kid Ink. Add that with Chris Brown’s already dope role, and subtract a couple of points for 2 Chainz, and you have a remix that gives you everything you may have wanted from the original.

Combining Chris Brown and Trey Songz vocals has proven to be a great thing, but the way that these two overlap on this song turns out incredible. The lyrics feel a bit too raw (and slightly cringeworthy) at times, but these artists are not exactly known for keeping it subtle.

Overall, I would rate the remix at:

8.75/10

Music Recommendation – Single – DJ Drama ft. Trey Songz, 2 Chainz, and Big Sean, Oh My (Remix)

I said earlier I would post a bit about DJ Drama over the course of this blog’s life, and I will hold on to that promise for a while. Oh My, though not my favorite DJ Drama song, it is my second favorite and is an all-timer on my list. But why does this track hold a special place in my heart?

The Oh My remix is way better than the original, which is still decent. 2 Chainz has a very weak verse, but the hook is definitely fire. Trey Songz delivers the message that he wants to get in your pants pretty well, and Big Sean drops some good bars in a short time period. If you like any one of these artists you will most likely enjoy this song.

Really the only reason this song is in my all-timer list is because of the hook. I’ve listened to this thing so many times, Trey Songz kills it. But overall, I’m afraid I can’t give the song above a 8.5/10. Big Sean’s verse is good and Trey does well on his, but the hook is really the reason to listen to the song. Verses aren’t very memorable, but still solid. I still think it is worth a listen, after all it was my favorite song for well over a year:
