10.6.13 - New Music - Pitbull & Kesha
Anyone who regularly reads this blog probably knows two things:
1. I have gotten rather lazy with my writing and more opinionated than ever, and
2. Pitbull kind of fucking sucks.
Pitbull is one of those artists that is always on the brink of losing his career, but just as he might be done, he reels us all back in with a hit and he’s got another year or two in him.
“Timber” is the rare moment when you almost forget how terrible he is and think he is wonderful, because the song is probably his catchiest effort yet. The harmonica and Kesha’s vocals will at first surprise you, but please, PLEASE don’t switch off. It becomes a whole new thing, and it will floor you.
What absolutely kills this song is the beginning of every chrous when K$’s vocals soar and the beat kicks in. Absolutely a monster. This is going to be huge.
