“Flashing Lights” by Kanye West.
It’s been all Reggae all the time (I just answered my phone with a Shabba lyric), but this morning I woke up with Kanye on my mind. And while “Good Life” might be better when one is leaving for Grand Cayman in the morning with their phenomenal new boyfriend, I went with “Flashing Lights” because the video was only recently released.
Like everything Kanye produces, the video is good, but it’s being called “ground-breaking” and getting the kind of praise only Kanye really gets. The video is not entirely safe for work (there’s a woman strutting around in her underclothes for most of it). The song, though, like every song on the Graduation album, is straight fire.
UPDATE: Damn it, I hate when I repeat the Song of the Day.
