In the never ending quest to expand my musical horizon, this song came across my laptop screen not too long ago. Actually I was suggested another song by Banky, but this one was more to my liking. Remember, I’m not super versed in his genre. Banky’s own CD Baby page suggests that he sounds like Urban R&B with some soul.
Being a musician that prides himself on being fairly well versed on things, I’m embarassed to admit that I really know nothing about the Urban style. So while I hear elements of Hip Hop and certainly some dance stuff too, I don’t really get where to hear the Urban thing comes from (maybe that’s the dancy stuff I hear in the song). It would be great if someone who really knows this style to comment here and make sure I’m properly educated in this style.
Mind you I don’t go out to a lot of clubs for the purpose of dancing, but I can image a room chocker-box full of scantily clad women and sharp dressed men. The vibe is loud music and fun, fun, fun. The song is obviously about fun. I think the call and response of the chorus is what really hooked me in. What is probably fun for Banky is all these people getting sweaty and grinding down each other and shouting out his words for the call and response.
Even though its totally out of Character to me… I have to say it’s grown a bit on me. As I’m sure it will if you give it time for you. Get it on iTunes, it’s there now. Go to your next party in need of music and crank it up. Really, go buy it now.
