Following “Strange Clouds“, another single has blown in from B.o.B’s upcoming sophomore LP. This time it’s the rap/reggae/rock hybrid “Play The Guitar”, which features Andre 3000. Sure, the Outkast MC may have been booted from Beyonce’s “Party” when it came time to shoot the song’s video, but he’s having a full-on renaissance thanks to a feature on Ke$ha’s “Sleazy 2.0″ remix and a lengthy verse on this song, “Play The Guitar”. Get your licks in below.
Lyrically, it’s more of the usual from B.o.B — bragging, boasting, “stackin’ C notes” and rhymes like this: “When I hit the bar it’s like Cheers, everybody knows who we are.”
Andre has a fun time playing with words: “According to the Internet, 3000 got a big ol’ dic-tionary full of words, he must know how to use them.”
The thing that seems to be missing from “Play The Guitar” is a memorable hook. Do you see this song sticking around as long as B.o.B’s biggest hits “Airplanes” and “Nothin’ On You”?
