Kanye West, Eric Hudson

As soon as you rip open the packaging on Kanye WestGraduation and take a complete listen, there are several tracks on the album that will musically jump your way.  For this reason alone it is no surprise that Flashing Lights, featuring singer Dwele, has been selected as the fourth single on the now platinum-plus certified album.  The song opens to an assembly of wavering violin strings that slowly fade into a Timbaland-eqsue club beat mastered by producers West and Eric Hudson.  (This is what West meant when he created Crack Music.)  Be forewarned, as singer Connie Mitchell repeats the phrase ‘flashing lights’ during the song’s intro and chorus, it is not wise to operate a motor vehicle; you might end up blowing through a red while vibin’ out.
