So I’m a little late with the review due to a computer crashing, but there’s no reason why I shouldn’t still share the awesomeness of White People Party Music!
White People Party Music! Don’t get offended, it’s all in good fun and the truth is there was no better title for Nick Canon’s new album. I was skeptical at first and who could blame me. Nick Cannon has never been a huge music icon. Yea, he’s successful from his many ventures but who can honestly say they’re a Nick Cannon fan?
Well it looks like Nick Cannon found his lane. He’s an intelligent man who knows where his target audience is. The album starts off with a few generic top forty pop tracks with the first one coming with production from Afro Jack. Normally this is the kind of album I would tear down and call generic and typical in normal copycat fashion. I digress because as this album progresses I see it for the true genius beneath the surface.
Nick found a way to attack his target audience and have fun while he’s doing it. With great White People Party Music songs like “F#$k Yo Birthday” ,“Phucking Awesome”, “White Lady” and “OJ” are wildly creative, on point and yet they still don’t stray from typical pop music.
For me the album started on track 4 “Pajama Pants” feat. Future. This was the point where I was truly able to see Nick’s vision coming together. It’s spot on and I just want to go back to college and get invited to a kegger.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think you’ll see me personally jamming this album while I’m rolling down the street, but in it’s own right it’s a masterpiece and the best thing Nick has ever put together in his music career.
A feature from his protégé Colette Carr on “Feel The Music” reminds me of what a disappointment she is and if Nick can put an album together this well then what happened to her below average 2013 debut. Her mixtape two years prior was fresh and creative and it’s been all down hill from there, but that’s another story for another day. In the mean time, Nick Cannon’s April 1st release is deserving of a perfect 10 score even if it’s not your kind of music. The creativity, the sense of humor and the above par production included. It couldn’t have been done better!
