Closing out my latest dip into the mucky waters of Billboard’s Hot 100, I arrive at a song that features Jeremih singing that he wants to “take shots with somebody” to the tune of Whitney Houston’s ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody.’
I don’t know if the performers grasp the irony of glorifying hard partying using a song whose famous singer died after prolonged substance abuse.
In Billboard’s seventh spot this week is Jeremih with ‘Don’t Tell ‘Em,’ a song as stupid as the spelling of his first name.
The girl power wave that put women in the top six Billboard spots hits a wall with this lazy R&B jam that celebrates women as mindless sex objects.
Songs like this make me sympathize with Tipper Gore and Bill O’Reilly. Does Tipper Gore still care about offensive song lyrics?
