The Truth About Music

Harris’ Song of the Week: Ray Charles by Chiddy Bang

The first time I heard this song I hated it. After hearing it a few more times, I still hated it. Then something changed. It started with the hook in the chorus. The way Chiddy Bang puts a hook together is unlike any other hip hop artist out there. They have a musical knack for nailing the sweet spot in a listeners ear and this song does just that.

Lyrically, this song is a mess. It’s utter nonsense. But from a musical standpoint, it’s pure gold. It sounds great and the groove is perfect. It finally looks like Chiddy Bang has a second big single (the first being 2010′s “Opposite of Adults”). Check out the video here.
