Could “Lemonade” be the comeback single that Danity Kane needs? They sure need it. Since late 2013, Danity Kane has slowly teased out its return to music: a song here, a tour there, not much else otherwise. What’s worst is that “Lemonade” hints of yet another hiccup, as Aundrea Fimbres doesn’t appear in the song. All that said, the song itself recalls how Danity Kane initially broke out from its iffy Making the Band origins, with savvy pop adaptations of rap at the moment.
“Lemonade” isn’t to be mistaken for Gucci Mane‘s breakout hit of the same name, though it’s pretty infectious, too. Set to snaps and a buoyant redux of the locker-slam rhythm from Clipse‘s “Grindin’,” the remaining trio tease and taunt club onlookers who can’t help but stare.Fans have already compared Dawn Richard‘s opening verse to Beyonce‘s “Partition” delivery, but what’s great is how it actually offers room for dead-eyed “Rack City” emcee Tyga. While guest rappers can often sound as if they’re interrupting pop songs solely to make themselves heard, Tyga actually fits in here.
