I think we can all agree one of the most annoying trends of 2012 was the Bandz A Make Her Dance craze. That being said, one good thing did come out of it: The remix. No, not the one with Lil Wayne, or any others that I have heard except for the one I am writing about now.
Normally I would make a snarky sarcastic remark, but I do want to focus on this track as I have a lot to say about it. Poor French Montana slips his way onto songs with artists who I actually like as if he’s nudging me like “Will you talk to me now please?” to which I respond “Ugh, fine.” But this is only because this is one of the few decent French Montana verses. I did say decent though, that does not mean I want to go to your house for a sleepover.
LoLo Monroe, meanwhile, came out of nowhere. I had never heard of her and just assumed when I first heard of this remix that she would be similar to a Honey Cocaine clone, where I would have walked away immediately. I was pleasantly surprised by her verse, which may be my favorite on the song.
Wiz Khalifa raps about things that aren’t weed (well, mostly). That’s different, but the verse is a little overrated. I hear a lot of people talk about how his verse was the best, to which I respond a firm “hahahahaha no.” His flow is decent but the verse just feels like it is topically all over the place. At least the other verses stay on focus (for the most part). I do not want to say it is the worst, but I just feel like anyone who says Wiz Khalifa’s Bandz A Make Her Dance verse is better than LoLo Monroe or B.o.B is doing the listening thing wrong.
Speaking of B.o.B, his verse is excellent. B.o.B has the power to either seriously surprise me or just make me slouch back and click out of my YouTube tab (See Not For Long or Play The Guitar, but I still say that Play My Guitar was one of my favorite Andre 3000 raps. Actually that’s a good song to go listen to, B.o.B’s raps aren’t great but hey Andre 3000 is in it). So back to reviewing Play Th – Bandz A Make Her Dance, I mean. B.o.B sounds good if not more of the same above.
Juicy J gives us another rap verse that sounds much better than the original in my opinion, but I have heard others say he put his better work in the first. So if I had to rank these artists in the song, it would have to be:
1. LoLo Monroe
3. Juicy J
4. Wiz Khalifa
5. French Montana
None of the verses are really bad, but sorry French, our relationship is going to be a long and bumpy road if you want to gain my love. Overall, I would rate the song at about 9.5/10. I think I have gone over everything, 500 words later. Give the remix a listen below:
P.S. Oh and might as well listen to Play The Guitar, which I may or may not rate at 8. – no, just sharing the song for Andre 3000’s part:
