Song: Poke Her Face [ft. Kanye West, Common & Lady Gaga]
Artist: Kid Cudi
Album: Man on the Moon: The Guardians
Label: G.O.O.D. Music / Universal Motown
Producer: A-Trak
Notes: none
Analysis: While the song title isn’t the most clever take on the original title (‘Pokerface’), this song is fucking fresh. A-Trak’s cuts and scratches and stripped down drum beat underneath the piano loop sample flips Lady Gaga’s dance hit into a brand new sound. Kid Cudi, Kanye West & Common all switch up their own flows into a more sing-songy style for some extra melody, which also comes from the hook borrowed from T.I.’s ‘Whatever You Like’. I’m actually not positive if this song will make the official cut of Cudi’s Man on the Moon, but it’s too good to not get an official release in some way or another. As of right now, it has my vote for one of the best instrumentals of 2009, and I’ve had it on repeat since I downloaded it.
Rating: 9.0
