Strange Clouds

I was about to call B.o.B. the world’s most popular rapper turned rocker/pop sensation, and then I remembered Lil Wayne’s musical transformation (see also: How to Love). Considering both Bobby and Weezy have joined forces for a new single, is it unreasonable then to think that Strange Clouds will be the biggest hit in music history? Ok, yeah, that is a little unreasonable, but you get the point. This one’s aimed at the charts, especially with proven hitmaker Dr. Luke cooking up an atmpospheric beat that’s as dark as it is catchy, a formula that’s worked for B.o.B. before (Airplanes). Vocally the esteemed Nothin on You creator walks both sides of the line nicely, one minute flipping off-kilter rhymes (first Top Chef reference in rap history?) and the next delivering party-ready vocals on the hook. For his part Weezy is, well, Weezy, alternately promising women some serious acrobatics in bed and proclaiming his gang ties. While we’ve yet to get either a title

(the album will also be entitled Strange Clouds) or release date for B.o.B.’s highly-anticipated sophomore album, Strange Clouds soaring up the charts will ensure both happen sooner rather than later. So how about it Booth Nation, does this one have #1 written all over it?
