In The Mark Beaumont

DEV ft. Sage The Gemini - Kiss It
(From YouTube; 2014)



Realest shit written on the internet hitherto in 2015. I hope Nicole gently coos it to her firstborn in the same way that mum dukes used to sang Robin The Frog's cover version of Halfway Down The Stairs to me when I was knee high to a grasshopper.

DEV and Sage The Gemini both dropping new singles in the past couple of weeks is a timely reminder that I'm still salty Kiss It wasn't the biggest pop/rap single since Dark Horse. It's cold out here on the innanet as a Kiss It stan when the only other troopers you can find ridin' for the cause are this Nicole E bird and an ex-Melody Maker writer renowned for being even more clueless about anything rap-related than the paper's other infamous Simon.

That new Sage The Gemini single is one of the saddest examples of industry-assimilation in recent memory. Inversely, that new DEV single is a perfect example of why Boom Clack will always triumph over Boom Clap:

That new Sage is dire. Gotta say I prefer "Drop That Kitty" when it comes to recent pop-rap crossovers. The recovering X-Ray Spex fan in me will always have a soft spot for Charli XCX.

LOL @ Step.

Zara - bloody 'ell, that's uncanny.

SE, I actually wish Drop That Kitty was a Charli & Tinashe song since Ty just gets in the way, imo. Pimp C is the only person who could ever get away with RHCP interpolations.
