WONGIE SONG OF THE WEEK: rita ora feat tinie tempah - r.i.p.
rita ora feat tinie tempah - r.i.p.
[it's definitely interesting to see the progression of how far the definition of a 'popular music' goes these days. case in point, rita ora's current smash has elements of dubstep, hip hop swagger, a sweet sample from nneka's 2009 anthem "heartbeat" and the poppiest vocal hook i've heard in awhile (thanks to rapper drake no less). weirdly, the mash up works wonders and offers rita a possible #1 this weekend on the UK charts. edgy pop lab experiment = success!]
