i'm in your conscience
I don't mind features as long as it doesn't take away from the main artist or sound ridiculous. Let's use Nicki Minaj in Beauty and a Beat for example. I actually like this song, but her feature is a bit awkward. "Buns out, weiner, but I gotta keep an eye out for Selener"? Let's ignore the elephant in the room with the Selena reference because it was obviously written before the break up, LET'S FOCUS ON THE FIRST PART. Nicki! What are you going to do with that poor boy?
I don't like how some artists feel the need to join up with everyone in every song that comes on the radio. Pitbull, I'm looking at you. The main rule for last year is that if you're gonna be a generic pop song of 2012, you have to have 1. the generic club beat 2. the song needs to be about clubbing, getting men/women, or drinks, and 3. Pitbull has to be in there somewhere. Cause he was just in everyone's damn song early to mid 2012, it seems.
Then you have some artists that are better as features than they are with their own music. Nicki Minaj, excluing Beauty and a Beat, I prefer as a feature in other songs, like Rihanna's Raining Men. Lil Wayne is a much better feature than solo artist. Still not great of course, but he is more tolerable when he just has a verse to himself rather than the whole song. There are a few more I'm missing, but eh.
I mean, I don't mind features honestly, it just needs to make sense and sound good. And not be Pitbull. lmao
This would be fantastic.
Also when y'all mentioned Hanging On, the first thing I thought of was Active Child's song Hanging On lmao. :( I got excited for a second!!
