Rob G ft. Paul Wall & Papa Reu - Private Dancer
Houston native and Universal Republic artist Rob G has seen his debut album, The Inauguration, get delayed for over a year, with no set release date from the label. As many fans suspected, the delays were due to a lack of radio-ready singles. Thus, Rob headed back into the studio to record a new track. While Private Dancer is a strong contender for strip-club airplay (don’t knock the concept, records get broken off in strip clubs), it somehow manages to avoid most of the clichés associated with the subgenre. Grill master Paul Wall feels right at home on Dancer (it’s his favorite topic besides slabs and ice), but the true credit goes to Papa Reu, whose production work and hook should give the single the automatic “banger” seal. The Inauguration is currently scheduled to drop later this year.
