I’ve waited so long for this EP. Due to delays, two singles were released to hold us over: Jidenna’s “Classic Man” and Janelle Monae’s “Yoga.” Although this album is a compilation of artists signed to Monae’s Wondaland Records, I am such a fan of hers that I downloaded it without listening… Grrrrr
Unlike my previous reviews, I am not going to break down the music genres because I’m not even sure if one has been identified for this group. Once downloaded at approximately 7AM on this past Friday, I begin blasting the music. I should mention that I downloaded the “explicit” version because I’m a badass, duh. Any who, first up was Deep Cotton’s “Let’s Get Caught.” Great melody, vulgar but not surprising. I already had the two singles that were released and am tired of hearing them so I skip to the last few songs. They are a snorefest and the remix for “Classic Man” was highly unnecessary. On the other hand, my husband loves Roman GianArthur’s “iKnow.” Due to his requests to hear it, that song and St. Beauty’s “Going Nowhere” are growing on me. I guess most of my disappointment stems from hearing better songs (in my opinion) on YouTube than what was released. Despite that, I am still looking forward to debut albums from all of the new artists and will gladly return this one so I can get credit on my next Wondaland purchase. Is that possible?
I hope Janelle remains imaginary friends with me after this. I still love her and am looking forward to more music, that won’t put me to sleep… … … Yeah, so… Pink Gumbeaux is under construction. I am 90% done with the new site: pinkgumbeaux.com. Although I will continue to have a presence on Blogger, it will no longer be my main blog *insert tears here* Till then, you know I need friends so like Pink Gumbeaux on Facebook and follow me on Twitter and Instagram.
