Jeremih’s Song “Oui” Bothers The Shit Out Of Me.

I’m not a fan of Jeremih. I’m also not not a fan of Jeremih. In fact, Jeremih exists in a space where I typically forget he exists until one of his songs pops up on a Sirius station I listen to and I read the info and I’m like, “Wow, he’s still around, eh? Well, look at God.” Pretty much, he’s like Fanta.

Admittedly, I did like his song “Planez,” though it’s 100 percent because of J. Cole’s hilariously uncouth verse. Lightskint Jermaine’s entire verse was the type I would’ve wanted to write before I started caring about offending those who listened to my music, including my mother.

Well, Jeremih has a song called “Oui” that came out at the end of 2015 that is getting a lot of play currently. Because you’ve probably read books or eaten French fries, you know that “oui” is the French word for “yes.” Jeremih has decided to go the homophone route—given its pronunciation in English is “we”—and include the hook, “There’s no ‘oui’ without u and i.”

In a nutshell, Jeremih has an entire song about being a couple—you know, a “we”—but is spelling it like “oui” so he can take advantage of the letters “u” and “i.” Just no.

Last year, in a piece I wrote about “Post to Be” by Omarion featuring Chris Brown and Jhené Aiko, I said this:

Before we move on to the absurdity of said lyric—I contend that it doesn’t actually work—I’d like the congregation to turn to the book of SayHeffaSayWhat and take a moment to appreciate the grammar assassination that happened on the very title of the song. “Post to Be” is a shortened version of “Supposed to Be.” I’ve seen n–gas say “posed to be,” but “Post” is some new-level f–kery. That’s Twitter stupidity on acid remixed with everything Tyrese ever learned in his elementary school in Watts. In fact, I believe the type of motherf–ker who would think “post” works in that title ALSO doesn’t realize it’s dumb-dumb-n–ga shorthand for “supposed.” For them, “post” is a regular-ass word up there with “’pacifically” for specifically. Be that as it may, I’m a better person today because there is a song out there called “Post to Be.” And believe it or not, you are too. I have nothing to back this up with by the way. Juvenile.

I’d wager that “Oui” is as egregious as “Post to Be,” if not more so. OK, maybe not more. But they’re definitely West Virginian kissing cousins in the “Why, Lordt, take me now” English Olympics.

Here’s how I think Jeremih and his goons ended up with a song called “Oui” that represents “we.” They were probably in Paris or H&M and saw a sign that had the word “oui” in it. Somebody said it out loud and was like, “Ain’t it crazy how in English, we spell ‘we’ like double-ewe and eee, but in French they spell ‘we’ like oh-ewe-eye? That’s so crazy. In the land of France, there’s no ‘oui’ without a ‘u’ and an ‘i.’ I’ll bet nobody ever noticed that before. Oh shit! BANGER! We’ll kill the game.” More of that same questionable logic.

(By the way, “we” in French is “nous,” pronounced like “new,” but you know, whatever and shit. “New” is “nouveau,” etc. There really is an infinite amount of f–kery the current urban-music community could do with the French language. But again, whatever and shit.)

So, Jeremih and his crew hit the studio to write their new hit single, “Oui,” to represent “we,” since, again, there’s no “yes” without u and i.

Admittedly, this song gives me the red ass for those types of obsessive-compulsive disorder reasons that make it hard to enjoy some songs when artists color too far outside the lines. But the oui-we thing really bothers the living fuck out of me for the simple reason that it just doesn’t translate and thus doesn’t make sense, and I’m not the type of ignorance-is-bliss dude that just accepts good things because they’re great.

Here are the lyrics to the chorus of the song, courtesy of Genius:

If we
Tried that we could be
Somewhere the climate
Is warm, long as you around me
I swear that everything will be just fine
I wish that we could take some time
Go anywhere, baby I don’t mind
Grown man, in my suit and tie
Hey, there’s no we without you and I
Oh, yea, ah yea, ah ah yea
Hey, there’s no we without you and I
Oh yea, ah yea, ah ah yea
Hey, there’s no we without you and I

As you can see, the word “we” is spelled properly on Genius because to use “oui” would be insane and render the song completely nonsensical. You’d like to see it, wouldn’t you? Let’s go ahead and do it for the culture:

If oui
Tried that oui could be
Somewhere the climate
Is warm, long as you around me
I swear that everything will be just fine
I wish that oui could take some time
Go anywhere, baby I don’t mind
Grown man, in my suit and tie
Hey, there’s no oui without you and I
Oh, yea, ah yea, ah ah yea
Hey, there’s no oui without you and I
Oh yea, ah yea, ah ah yea
Hey, there’s no oui without you and I

And because I’m thorough, let’s just go ahead and translate what Jeremih proposed and got through label heads:

If yes
Tried that yes could be
Somewhere the climate
Is warm, long as you around me
I swear that everything will be just fine
I wish that yes could take some time
Go anywhere, baby I don’t mind
Grown man, in my suit and tie
Hey, there’s no yes without you and I
Oh, yea, ah yea, ah ah yea
Hey, there’s no yes without you and I
Oh yea, ah yea, ah ah yea
Hey, there’s no yes without you and I

As you can see, the song makes absolutely no sense when you apply the rules.

Now, in a world where Young Thug, Kodak Black and Lil Yachty exist, I realize that I’m being a bit hard on Jeremih. For one, he’s just trying to be creative. Check. For two, the song itself isn’t that bad. It might not be that good, but it’s also not that bad. Three, there are much bigger things to worry about in the world then another artist taking some R. Kelly-style creative license creating a song I’d never listen to if radio didn’t exist.

And that’s all well and good. But fuck that; it drives me nuts every single time I hear him sing the hook because it’s just not right. OK. Do you remember when Cousin Harold got shot in Menace II Society and Sharif stayed behind with his body while O-Dog, A-Wax and the chick whose name eludes me got Caine in the car to drive him to the hospital? His reasoning: “It’s just not right, OK!”

Same shit, really. The next time I hear “Oui,” will I be annoyed? Oui. Will I want to pull my eyelids down and pour WD-40 into them and then light them on fire? Oui.

Will Jeremih still get paid? Oui.

Is that just how it’s post to be?

As an aside, it has been suggested to me that perhaps Jeremih’s usage of “oui” for its u and i are about consent; basically making it a consent anthem. You know, that theory MIGHT have legs if this wasn’t the same dude who made the “Planez” song I referenced earlier. It’s just not plausible. At all. I’m not saying Jeremih’s rapey, I’m just saying he’s also not exactly fighting for women’s rights either. Basically, you know what else doesn’t exist without “u” and “i”?

Quit.

Quit? 

Oui.

  • Proverbs31WIFE!

    Bullshid has a u and I, no?

    • panamajackson

      I believe it does.

    • Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! I legit did that out loud.

  • The messed up part is that “Oui” is currently resting atop of my Ugly-A**, Ugly-Faced Sangin’ playlist. It’s an utterly ridiculous song that happens to be catchy and doesn’t vex me to the levels that any of Drake’s songs do.

    • ~*V. von Schweetz*~

      That ‘ah yeah ah yeah ah ah YEAH is everything!

  • miss t-lee

    I honestly forget this dude exists half the time. I’ve heard this song and the whole Oui thing bothered me too.
    However, the s/c version of “Down On Me” will forever be my junk.

    • BmoreLikeLA

      omg I forgot that song existed.

      • miss t-lee

        Only song of his I ever liked…lol

    • Val

      I actually didn’t even know he existed until PJ’s post.

      • miss t-lee

        He’s been around for quite sometime.

        • Val

          Interesting. I guess there’s a whole universe of R&B singers I’ve never heard of. Which is strange because there was a time, in the 90s until the mid 2000s, when I pretty much knew who every R&B singer was whether I liked them or not.

          • Jennifer

            Val, you’re bound to recognize one of his songs if you give him a listen. That Birthday Chex mess made the rounds for your listening pleasure and derision when it came out.

            • Val

              Lol If this song that PJ wrote about is any indication how familiar I am with his music then it’s likely I’ve never heard anything by him.

              • Jennifer
                • Val

                  Wait, is this a spoof of the real song or the real song? Lol

                  • Jennifer

                    This is the real song, ma’am.

                    BTW – I applaud you for avoiding this song for all of these years, but I’m a fan of schadenfreude, so you gotta suffer with the rest of us.

                    • Val

                      Lol I’m just amazed that anyone is able to listen to this song with a straight face. It would have been a good SNL skit.

                    • Deeds

                      Lol…Well damnn

                    • Nik White

                      Like “D” in the Box!

                    • KNeale

                      Girl you know I I I…love this song! Sometimes I have to remind folks to take stuff for what it is. Don’t go into the Transformers movie thinking you’re about to see Schindlers List. And don’t listen to this song thinking you’re about to hear the second coming of Songs in the Key of Life.

                    • Val

                      Lol Okay. but…nevermind. Enjoy!

                  • miss t-lee

                    LMFAO

                  • Lea Thrace

                    oh Val. The unintentional YET STILL INCREDIBLY appropriate shade in this comment just did me in.

                    • PhlyyPhree

                      Right? I legit laughed out loud.

                • miss t-lee

                  “masterpiece”

                • I HATED THIS SONG…. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

          • miss t-lee

            Maybe you just don’t listen to the genre as much as you once did?

            • Jennifer

              But, how? It was coming out car windows, at the lounge, at the bar. Lordt! I wasn’t listening to it so much as escaping it.

              • miss t-lee

                IDK. I’m just offering suggestions…lol

                • Jennifer

                  Just trying to learn some life lessons from Val. Maybe I too can avoid the next generation version of Birthday Chex.

                  • miss t-lee

                    I just wanna know how she avoided that song…that sh*t was freakin’ everywhere.

              • Val

                @miss_t_lee:disqus And @J3nJ3n:disqus

                Usually I hear new music through stumbling around youtube or on tumblr or fb. If something catches my ear then I explore and find out who the artist is. Otherwise the stuff I don’t like is just noise pollution and doesn’t even register.

                • L8Comer

                  I’m like this. It’s because I don’t drive. When I was younger I would listen to radio while I drove and that’s how I found new songs. There’s so many new people whose music idk. Ask me go name a Taylor swift or Bruno Mars song. Caint do it. Wait, uptown funk (cuz the super bowl) so I just what my favss are putting out. Lately I’ve been actively seeking out music cuz uber and my friends have cars. So if I hear a song I like I make a note of they lyrics and look it up when I go home. That’s how I discovered oui. In uber. N I Actually like it! Now Ima look up planez. si?

                  • LMNOP

                    Whenever I drive somewhere and put on the radio (probably 5 times a year) I am always like “wow, this is still happening? They’re still giving stuff away to every Xth caller? Still having people call in and tell them where they’re calling from? Still all these commercials?” In my mind it’s all stuck in the 90s, but it’s all still happening.

                    • L8Comer

                      Yes! Look, they still do those horoscopes they used to do when I was in high school! Shady ayus horoscopes. And re-mix hot songs with something silly… like I think R. Kelly’s I believe I can fly became a song about chicken wings or something. Still all dem commercials and the same 7 songs in rotation.

                    • LMNOP

                      People complain about the commercials on Pandora and how you can only skip some of the songs you don’t like, but you put on the actual radio and you just have to suffer through all that ish, a song you don’t like followed by 4 commercials, then another song, then some radio guy talking about nothing at all for 2 minutes, then more commercials.

                    • L8Comer

                      That’s why I like my ipod. My fave songs, no interruptions.

            Sh*t…lol

      • BrownBearBear

        Don’t feel bad neither did I. But I speak French and Spanish and I vouch completely for Panama’s essay. I do the same thing.

        • KNeale

          Ensename!

          Yo se un poco de espanol. Quiero hablar con fluidez asi que practico mucho y escucho a radio espanol. Sin embargo, tengo que aprender Frances porque muchas de los paises de Africa hablan en Frances.

          • L8Comer

            For French, I’ve always found speaking with west Africans from francophone countries or Haitians is the easiest. Anyone else find this? Hearing French people originally from France speak requires sooo much concentration for me…?.

            I’d just teach yourself. Especially if you’re on a budget. You already know Spanish. Get a book, practice conjugations and commonly used speech, then find some friends to speak with you. You really need to Hear it spoken and see it at the same time because so many words sound the same: maybe get a book on tape and follow along? Take your friends who speak it out for drinks and have them correct you. There’s always aps and stuff to test you too.

            • It’s the same for me… I am fully fluent Spanish speaker (half Cuban).. pero hearing accents outside of African diasporans kills my ears… I don’t want to listen to it… the rhythm, the pronunciation… just yuck… My husband was just saying this a couple of weeks ago… He is fully bilingual like me (Dominican) and he says he has a hard time understanding Colombians and Mexicans… etc because of the lack of (AAVE) for lack of a better term.

              • L8Comer

                I really think that’s what it is …we have a slightly different pronunciation and cadence in the way we talk that transcends continents and makes communication easier

                • Oh it is… there was a study done on the way Congolese Haitians spoke French and Kreyol with comparison afro-dominicans… there were only a few phonetic differences for it to be 2 different languages… That ish is beautiful!

                  • L8Comer

                    It really is.

                  • Lillie Emily

                    Congolese Haitians…is this a thing? Please educate me!

            • orchid921

              Hmm. I’ve always thought native French speakers talked way too fast! You may be on to something!

          • LMNOP

            Here’s a good resource: http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/french/

            And this is a list of free online language classes: http://www.openculture.com/freelanguagelessons

            I would also get a used first year college French book with CDs off amazon too, it can be a cheap old one, grammar hasn’t changed.

            Someone gave me this CD called French with Michel Thomas a while ago that was the best language learning cd I’ve ever tried, if you’re just getting started I’d recommend it as a good introduction. https://www.amazon.com/French-Michel-Thomas-Fastest-Language/dp/0071381651/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1467236219&sr=8-5&keywords=french+cd+michel+thomas Apparently there are also significantly more expensive versions.

              thanks!!

          • Que tipo de musica escuchas? Por ejemplo, musica caribena or como mariachi? lol Si quieres aprender cualquier idioma, tengas que sumergirse en esa cultura. Un libro no va a ensenarte nada. Dialecto es importante tambien.

            • KNeale

              Escucho a las noticias y canal cultural en el radio. En mi ciudad no tenemos muchos canales en espanol. Me gusta la musica y escucho a menudo. Sin embargo, los cantantes pronuncian las palabras y frases con gran emocion y si no sabes las palabras que puede ser dificil de entender. Asi que es muy necesario (para mi) para aprender por conversacion.

              Veo television y peliculas en espanol y usar subtitulos en Espanol asi que puedo escuchar y ver las palabras al mismo tiempo.

              Hay son muchos accentos y versiones. Quiero centrar en Colombia ahora, porque Colombia tiene la mayor poblacion afro de todos paises hispanohablante. Sin embargo, en estados unidos la mayoria de los medios espanoles es de Mexico o Espana.

              He encontrado en internet:

              http://www.voanoticias.com/z/537.html

              Que sabes de otra de podcast espanoles? De cualquier pais. (Me gusta podcast!)

              Finalmente, (este mensaje es muy largo) estaria dispuesto a charlar con la gente que quiere practicar conversacion? **bats eyelashes, stick out bottom lip** Por favor!!!

              • Bueno pa mi es algo distinto porque hablo como la caribeña que soy. La gente negra en Colombia sufre mucho… El estado Chocó es un buen lugar pa ver la cultura africana.

                Podemos practicar si quieres.. pero te digo en avance, hablo como una cubana y dominicana…lol

                • KNeale

                  Es muy diferente?

                • KNeale

                  If you’re interested, can we exchange emails? Maybe penpals at first as thats easier than phone calls, especially making energy to talk to someone you don’t know in a language they dont speak. Lol. I need practice writing too so if you are willing and able let me know.

                  There were too many words in here I didn’t know so I reverted back. =(

        Right. I’ve never heard the song. Don’t need to. Recent musical history tells me there’s an 80% chance it’s trash.

    • PhlyyPhree

      I never disliked Jeremih. I just never thought about him when he wasn’t randomly tonguing Karlie Redd down in a studio.

      I do still play “All the Time” (The Weezy-less version) all the time.*

      *see what I did there? HA!

    • KNeale

      The Late Nights mixtape is really good and generally Jeremih is underrated. Cuz when they let him have a radio hit its the most boring nonsense ever when I feel like he has plenty of other music thats good. I don’t know whats going on.

      • miss t-lee

        I’m good.
        Sadly, a lot of folks are like that radio hits are terrible, but album cuts are good.

    • panamajackson

      Like Kwame and those f*cking polka dots?

      • Who rocks the spot? BIGGIE!

        When I first heard that line, I felt for Kwame’s brother, because I went to school with the cat. There’s nothing like hearing your older brother get SONNED on the radio. *smh*

      • PhlyyPhree

        Mannnnnnnn….All I can say is Kwame laid out the blueprint for Meek Mill should he ever decide to try and return to the game.

        • Jennifer

          I feel like Desiigner would be a more fitting heir to the polka dot part of the empire.

          • PhlyyPhree

            I’m specifically referring to someone who got clowned SO hard and then was able to somehow turn their life around and become successful with the help of a few well placed pop singers. Then again Biggie had to die, so I’m guessing someone who have to volunteer to off Drake hunh?

        • I saw Meek in a Naija music video the other day, I was like, this dude be getting “Continental Ls”

        • miss t-lee

          Well you kinda played yourself with that one.

        • HoobaStankyLeg

          Ha I caught that too! My mom was like: What happened to the closed captioning. I had to explain to her that this young man is the real life Can’t Get Right.

          On another note, I heard his XXL freestyle and was pleasantly surprised that I understood about 45% of it, and the way he made something so depressingly morbid sound so melodic impressed me.

  • Other_guy13

    He still makes music. After Birthday Chex I figured he was dead….who knew?

    • HouseOfBonnets

      He has been keeping KOD playlist on fire for the last three years.

      • The fact that KOD and Magic City somehow run mainstream Black radio scares me to no end. No disrespect to strippers, but we’re going to let strippers determine the radio for EVERYONE?

        • HouseOfBonnets

          I mean that, constant replay of the same three songs,annoying host and hearing songs from as late as 2008 on old school stations made me give up radio a good 4 years ago.

          Mainstream black radio imo is horrid.

              Will read but next time warn me for NSFW cover photos lol

            • PhlyyPhree

              So I just read this article…..I got stuck on the part about Foxy Lady being the strip club that changed Magics life….
              That’s the strip club my family and I went to during our family reunion this year. If anything, it encouraged me in my decision to stay off of drugs.

          When I was working in radio, I was taught that for certain genre/artists/songs, you take it to the strip clubs first and let the strippers work it. If they like it and put it in rotation? You won.

          You cackle but it’s true lol

      • Mr. Mooggyy

        Whatever keeps the booties bouncing is ok with me!

        • PhlyyPhree

          And that’s exactly how it works

    • Val

      Dead though.

      • Other_guy13

        It’s an option

  • Jennifer

    1) That song is by Jeremih?! I didn’t know he was still making music.
    B) I could barely understand the words anyway, so ok…
    III) I’ll probably still jam to it – I couldn’t understand the words in the first place. Meh.

  • Ghettoprincess

    First I see some Bryson guy winning an award for what I thought was a Trey Songz song and now I find out this isn’t Trey Songz either. Is Trey Songz even a thing anymore? Get off my lawn? Oui

    • Jennifer

      Those poor R&B whippersnappers of a certain age. When Trey Songz becomes the example by which you’re all compared, we have certainly entered The Last Days.

      • miss t-lee

        Agreed.

      • All the young fellas with R&B potential in middle school heard Trey was getting all the panties thrown at stage and said eff all this harmony, tonality and ish.

        • Jennifer

          They gave tonality the finger and then told harmony his mama’s potato salad was trash. No respect.

          • I still remember Prince just staring at Trey Songz during a BET Tribute like, “If I could just stomp out this talentless ninja’s eyeball with my left heel!”

            • Jennifer

              YES! And, if the Purple One had stomped out his eye, that would have been the biggest achievement of his life. We should all be so lucky.

            • KNeale

              Hate to do it cuz these jokes are good but I seent Trey Songz live and he can actually sing. I admit he does weird things with his voice (I think he’s trying to be unique or something) on some of these singles but he can actually sing.

              • Lol, did you ever see the video of him performing Purple Rain live at the BET awards?

                • KNeale

                  No….but now you’ve made me afraid.

                • Prince was like…

                  • Chaud_et_Froid

                    CRYING!!!! I’m so stealing that image.

                    Thanks in advance,

                    Management

              • EVERYBODY SAW HIM DO THIS….

                https://youtu.be/FH3hrjGGUOA

                • KNeale

                  Lol!!!!

        • Well, considering how moisturized his peen was during that time period, could you blame them? Really? LOL

          • I know about 3 to 4 girls in Boston who swore they fainted at a concert he had in Boston 4 to 5 years ago. If only snapchat or vine had been in vogue back then.

            • At one point, Trigger Trey was the Black Tom Jones. It’s wild to watch, because he was a skinnier Jaheim when he first came out, but he went for them panties, and the cash flow followed.

              • I still remember when he popped too, right after Successful ft Drake came off. Lol, this ni&&a was one of the first to take advantage of the golden age of R&B and Hip-Hop emo.

        • Boom

        • Janelle Doe

          He sings? I thought he was the young actor in that movie about Steve Harvey’s book?

      • Or a punchline/butt of a Drake song

      • ChokeOnThisTea

        Amen!

      • orchid921

        I got floor seats for a Trey show a few years ago on some hookup ish … I have never seen so many thirsty younguns in all my LIFE!!

    • HouseOfBonnets

      I like me some fuckboi trigger trey like the rest of them but I think we’re giving him waaaay too much credit on others sounding like him. Have y’all heard Y.A.S. at least for me I can tell a semi difference.

      Now if you were talking about August “My twist-out stay poppin with the freshest coconut oil” Alsina or Chris “Me vs. Everybody on IG/Show my azz every year on the BET awards/Dance the pain away” Brown then it would be a different story.

      *Shade was intended

      • Jennifer

        Shade was evident. lol

        • HouseOfBonnets

          Long as y’all knew lol

        • Nik White

          And approved!

    • ChokeOnThisTea

      My sister and I were talking about this. Like, all these cats sound the same. She thought Tinashe was Jhene Aiko.

      • E_Deshon

        Shiiiiiiiiidddd is she not?

        • ChokeOnThisTea

          Lmao!!!

      • orchid921

        OUCH!!

    • Trey Songz should NEVER be a thing.

      • Your Mama

        church..tabernacle…amen..

    • SororSalsa

      He won multiple awards, and I still couldn’t pick him out of a lineup. Perhaps that’s what he was trying to avoid…dude had that hat pulled down like he had warrants.

      Jeremih still surprises me…when “Birthday Chex” came out, I would not have guess that he would still be around now.

      • grabo2003

        50 Cent kinda assisted with his prolonged stay with that ‘Put it Down’ collabo because apparently Jeremih was about to be dropped by the label until that collabo.

    • IlikeHotCheetos

      This sounds like my mom! ?

  • MsKey

    I HATE HATE HATE that song..along with that one by Kent Jones..” she said konichiwa” or whatever that song is. I broke a fingernail trying to change the channel on the radio.

    • Proverbs31WIFE!

      Konichiwa is MY jam. Sapa naboo lay!

      • Yo… I can’t have my sis in these streets talmbout “Sapa naboo lay”.

        It’s … “and she say, ‘sak pase’ and I say, ” n’ap boule.”

        hahahaha

        • Proverbs31WIFE!

          Lissssen…..???

        • Your Mama

          you the real MVP for that correction b/c i’ve been singing naboo lay too

        • dmcmillian72

          OMG!!!!! I burst out laughing so hard I gave myself a headache, had to push my chair away from my desk, remove my glasses, and wipe the tears from my eyes!!!!! BWAHHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! Thank you so much for this! I needed this laugh this morning!

    • panamajackson

      That song is something else.

    • MsKey

      ugggh, its on right now…I Really hate the intro…uhh, uhh, uhh..shut up

    • mmmmohmygot I hate it too. SOOOOOOO much hate…He keeps saying she said all these #BasicAss foreign words…to the tune of a conversation that makes ZERO sense…like….whaaaa???

    • PhlyyPhree

      WHOMAGAWD.
      I loathe that song. Like….I just don’t understand. My mom always told me if I don’t have something of note to say, shut the fuck up!!!!

      • Bellaknows

        Mama is a wise, wise woman.

  • YeaSoh

    Ummm this blaspheme ovuh my JAMMM shall stop right now!

    • panamajackson

      • YeaSoh

        You don’t know my life

  • Val

    PJ, you know me and you are cool and stuff but how are you going to write a post about a song and not post the song, Man?

    • panamajackson

      But…but…there’s a link to the song in the post!

      • Val

        Okay. I guess I’m busted for skimming. Lol

        *goes to listen to song*

        edit: after hearing the song I think I’d actually like it had Neo done the song. Seems like something he’d sing.

        • JennyJazzhands

          I read every word and didn’t see a link, either.
