SONG FOR THE MOMENT (SEPTEMBER): TYRESE Feat LUDACRIS-TOO EASY
'Fast Five' is currently filling peoples DVD players with torque injected adrenaline, but how's this for more fuel? Co-stars, longtime friends and '2 Fast, 2 Furious' collaborators; Tyrese and Ludacris have got together for as Ludacris dubs; "An 'Open Invitation' to the rest of your lives". 'Too Easy', the lead single off 'rese's new album ('Open Invitation' the follow up to the double, creative classic 'Alter-Ego'), is hard R&B with brag and swag built for a Jag. This car music is formidable. Armed with the confidence of his rapping alter-ego, Black-Ty, Tyrese shows he doesn't just make incredible ballads (like 'How You Gonna Act Like That', 'One', 'Come Back To Me Shawty', 'Gotta Get You', 'I'm Sorry' and the next single 'Stay') with lavishing lines like "Just pulled up to the club in a McLaren got you like “oh”/We hopped out and the girls followed us as we escorted to the top floor/Got bottles in one hand, cash in the other/Stacks flying everywhere, need an umbrella/Cards unlimited, keep on spending it, cause I got money to blow". Ludacris brings more one-liners with a trademark, strong, 'oooooh' inspiring, stellar 16 as he spits "Good Lawd! This the New Testament/There’s one life to live for dead presidents/So being frank don’t insult my intelligence/Get it? Meaning money, I’mma get it!/You love it don’t ever own it, you rent it, you just a tenant/Forget it, I’m in the Guinness like Dennis, I’m just a menace/To society, Luda will pop eyes for the spinach". Still it's clear this is Tyrese's track. It's clear his "Brazil all the way to Tokyo" swag is going to extend further around the world. This track may not be down to earth but it's hitting the global airwaves. Turn up your radio. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
