Travie McCoy Classes Up His Solo Album With A Shot Of Ke$ha On “Want U Bad”

Apr 12th, 2010 // 4 Comments

After flying high with his mellow jam of wish-fulfillment “Billionaire” with Bruno Mars, Travie McCoy’s brain goes back in the gutter on the girl-scouting track “Want U Bad,” featuring the restroom stall regular Ke$ha. Travie’s got his sights set on the Pixies fan in the song—doesn’t he know it’s impossible to get in Ke$ha’s pants as she refuses to wear any? Listen to “Want U Bad,” from McCoy’s debut solo album Lazarus, below.

Travie’s unleashed yet another catchy song full of playful, flirty rhymes—we have a feeling this album might be one of the underdog hits of the summer, and its success might inspire McCoy to stay solo a little bit longer, especially since Gym Class Heroes’ fanbase seems to have quieted down the past few years.

    Travie, love the song, it reminds me of something, but my memory fails me. I’ve been getting your name wrong all over the place. No offense intended. I spell things the way I need to at the time I spell them. For example, I do not spell Kesha, Ke$ha, but Rose, and Rose, spells Ron, not Ron, but Sire. (Did that get a rise, Sweet Cheeks?)

    I would like to see “Want U Bad” do very well when it is released. I think it is both fun to listen to, and good for the relations of people who deserve to be supported. I will buy it.

    I loved “Billionaire,” even though I long ago lost desire for money or fame, unless it is necessary for some other thing. I thought the acoustic version with Brandon Mars divine. His voice is beautiful and he can pick.

    Louis Armstrong and his wife did a track with Jimmy Rodgers long ago. I see that kind of collaboration and it brings joy to my heart. If I had a billion, I would spend some of it on bringing back the banjo as a popular instrument. Beats from Africa are the soul of it, and blues, gospel, and everything good, flow naturally from it.

    Really glad to see you smiling, Travie. Joy.

    Joy to you, Rose.

  3. Sounds like the author of this article dated someone who cheated on her with Kesha. What’s with this article?

    • Where’d ya get that from? Noting that she doesn’t wear pants is not a thinly veiled dig at her being a slut or anything. Seriously, the gal doesn’t like pants! (But what pop star DOES wear pants nowadays anyway?)
