This is the third single from Attention Deficit, American hip hop rapper Wale's debut album. On this track, Wale raps about the type of woman he has his eye on.
This features southern rapper Gucci Mane and Weensey aka Wink, lead singer of Backyard Band, a go-go band from the Washington, D.C. area.
The song samples Backyard Band's go-go rendition of The Moments and The Whatnauts track "Girls." The original soul number was a #3 hit in the UK in 1975.
Wale explained to MTV News how the song is a nod to the go-go sound that was prevalent in his hometown while he was growing up. (Check out E.U.'s 1988 hit "Da Butt
" for an example of the go-go sound). Said Wale: "I brought Gucci on the record because when I was growing up, Master P, Juvenile and a lot of these other Southern artists used to play with the go-go bands. It's almost trying to pay homage to that era, when I came up. Now you can even see Jim Jones or Shawty Lo perform with some of the go-go bands where I'm from. This is my attempt to kinda show you that. I think we did a pretty good job of executing it - we gonna have some fun with pretty women!"
Songs About Movies
Iron Maiden, Adele, Toto, Eminem and Earth, Wind & Fire are just some of the artists with songs directly inspired by movies - and not always good ones.
The Guns N' Roses rhythm guitarist in the early '90s, Gilby talks about the band's implosion and the side projects it spawned.
The Murderdolls frontman on how growing up with horror movies led to a life of shock rock.
Jules Shear - "All Through The Night"
Shears does very little promotion, which has kept him secluded from the spotlight. What changed when Cyndi Lauper had a hit with his song? Not much, really.
