New Music: Gucci Mane, Spotlight [ft. Usher]

Filed under: Download, Hip Hop, Song — Tags: , , , — Greg @ 5:56 pm


Song: Spotlight [ft. Usher]
Artist: Gucci Mane
Album: The State vs. Radric Davis
Label: So Icey / Warner Bros. Records
Producer: Polow da Don
Notes: 2nd single from LP
Analysis: Mark my words, you will be hearing this one everywhere for the rest of 2009. Convicted criminal and gutter-flowed mixtape rapper Gucci Mane is likely to hold a Top 40 spot next to Miley Cyrus with this song, and deservedly so. This track drips of the spilled Heineken Lights of women flocking to the dance floor to get busy to their new favorite song. It’s a club song in the best sense of the description: loose, undeniably catchy, and stamped with the consistantly solid Usher on the hook. Actually, it will hit you much in the same way T.I.’s ‘Live Your Life’ did (whether that’s positive or negative depends on your mood and level of intoxication). There’s no reason that this can’t be the breakout song for Gucci and his simple, but humorous and sometimes surprising lyricism, but also has the threat of turning him into the next Flo Rida, which no respectable artist could ever recover from. Hopefully The State vs. Radric Davis has enough fire in it to keep Gucci’s name in our icey mouths. Gucci!
