The visuals dropped yesterday, revolutionary shit.
Jay- Z reportedly designed the logo himself, and decided to go with a simple look. Uber simple. Combining it with the Hello Brooklyn song he had a few years back was ingenious though. Few can compete with his brand marketing.
let me caveate this by saying that I actually like Maroon 5 (don’t judge me) but this song is off. First, wear the fuck is there a payphone even at? Even if I ever believed Adam Levine was absolutely alone without a single cell phone around, or iPad with facetime, have you tried to find a payphone lately? When I was a kid every parking lot, street corner, grocery store and gas station had a payphone. Nowadays you can’t find one to save your life. I’ll wait….. To add insult to injury Wiz Khalifa’s verse was terribly off topic. I thought he would come on and talk about how he stole Adam Levine girl and how he has a pocket full of change, like more quarters nickels and dimes than he has tattoos and he still wouldn’t give Adam money to call his girl. Nope not the case, his verse was all about how he has money now and haters, who used to be down but now things have changed…. and was that a stab at Kanye at the end of the verse??!? I’m not instigating but both these dudes running round with somebody’s sloppy seconds so who can really say anything? Actually with Kim K it’s like thirds or fourths by this point (if the lil bow wow rumors are true). But I digress, this song could have been good like a decade or two ago when only the superrich/ drugdealers/ superrichdrugdealers had cell phones and the rest of us had to wait til we got home to make that all important call.
