I honestly didn't think that he would push forward with this as the first single, but he shut me the hell up. I still think he could have done a better job with a single selection. I'm a big fan of his productions and I'm sure he will surprise on the new album with something different. I really hope he does because he can't keep releasing this same sounding music over and over. You're a producer, get creative. Give me something GOOD!! As for the video, I simply don't care for it. It looks like he threw a bbq in his backyard, invited people over, and recorded it. Tacky.
