** Hat zwar die Vekäufe nochmals ordentlich angekurbelt, warum man seinen eigenen Song aber dermassen verhunzen muss, versteh ich beim besten Willen nicht. Vor allem über den Autotune-Einsatz kann ich nur den Kopf schütteln!
* The original song was horrible enough so I wasn't expecting anything good from this.
The inclusion of Nelly and some awful autotune makes this a lot worse than the original and makes for a very uncomfortable and torturous listening experience. Third worst song of 2013 so far behind Best Friends and Bubble Butt (Remix).
So glad this horrific pile of shit failed to reach the top 50 in Australia. Last edited: 25/10/2013 13:54
* not sure whether this is worse than the original, since this is at least more honest in its hacky over-commericalism, ultimately its proof that country music in America serves the same role in the marketplace as reggae does in New Zealand, something which I can sympathize greatly with my fellow yanks.
** I never really cared for the original, but this reeks of a cheap cash-in. Why would you even need to add a rapper to this? Well, this video might go some way to explaining that (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otLFNnX6lqs).
Anyway, as for the rest of the song, it's just so stupid and unappealing. All those crap lyrics about your car and other nonsense that doesn't make any sense. All that overproduction. All those horrific sounding vocals.
Though I don't hate it as much as others on here, this song provides clear examples of the troughs of country music, both by itself, and when mixed with other genres.
*** Every change made from the original makes this a lot worse. There's not a single improvement. The excessive autotune sounds horrible, as does the thudding, thumping beat replacing any semblance of real musical instruments. Nelly is unnecessary and out of place and while his useless verse is no good, he's at his worst with his endless random interjections throughout the chorus and verses.
I unashamedly adore the original and this is near on unlistenable.
