Hmmmm… So Lady “Baby You’re A Firework” decided to tackle the lyrical intricacies of Jay ‘n’ K.‘s Watch The Throne highlight “N***as In Paris”? That ish cray!
OK, so the fitted was a nice touch and K.P’s version isn’t awful. However, after seeing homegirl from YouTube turned legit recording artists Karmin tear up Busta’s verse from Breezy’s “Look At Me Now” last year, the bar has been raised significantly for any “Beckys” with a hip hop dream and a mic. In all fairness, Radio 1 typically offers artists the chance to step out of their comfort zone and tackle material from the “didn’t see that one coming” end of the cover songs spectrum. So, props to Katy for even having the balls (”...so hard, motherf**kers wanna fine me”) to get her Kreayshawn on with a Hov and Yeezy future classic but I think she really is better off croaking over pop beats about girls… kissin’ ‘em and California ones.
