This video has juicy production. The backup choreography is really rockin. The rest is just candy and sex. But it’s cute.

I really enjoy this songs dancehall-lite beats. And of course it’s catchy as hell; but the flip side is that it is another ignorable/forgettable club banger. I will absolutely shake my ass to this song every time, but it feels…empty.

The “drank”s are like the rainbows and sunshine opposite of the “drank”s in “Swimming Pools (Drank)” by Kendrick Lamar. Jason Derulo’s falsetto is not beautiful. Which, if we’re being honest, doesn’t have to be if he keeps that top off. X D But, I just want my falsetto dreams to be of higher caliber. I actually think that Ty Dolla $ign might have been the star of this one–kinda sad considering Nicki’s once GIANT presence in whatever she did. Her voice still has that quality that pounds through, so my ears perk when her verse starts; but her lyrics have lost the bite that they used to have. At least on this one…

This was a good catch for my dance time, but it really isn’t phenomenal.

2.5/5
