When I heard this, I instantly liked it. I also hesitated to post it, because there is something about this song that makes it feel like a guilty pleasure. Not that you should feel guilty about liking anything (this is still my jam). I really do enjoy this Left Boy track, so I’m trying to narrow down what it is that’s making me unsure about it. Here are the prime suspects:
– The name “Left Boy,” because what is a Left Boy? It sounds like a slang term for a male prostitute in a foreign country, sort of.
– The “Ay” reminds me of a Rihanna noise—one of those noises that she makes that can inexplicably bring a song to the next level.
– The hard “r” on “hater” in a context other than “Hate“
– The YouTube tags read: LEFT BOY OUTRO RAP ELECTRO DUBSTEP HIP HOP BEST DOPE SWAG ILL AMAZING FANTASTIC ORGASMIC COOL AUSTRIA NEW YORK
Hm. I still haven’t quite figured it out. Listen for yourself. Should I feel guilty for liking this?
It’s got an insane video too. Check that out below.
