Rocki Evans - Fantastic

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
Lady and a Tramp
Album:
More Songs About Girls

I’m feeling nice today, so I’ll spare you the “Who’s on first?” routine (just this once, though), so let’s just say that this new single, the first Booth feature from up-and-coming singer Rocki Evans, is titledFantastic,” is pretty fantastic

excellent. The latest entry in the “unusually upbeat breakup joint” R&B subgenre, this cut finds production/songwriting duo Lady and a Tramp pairing a compulsively head-noddable swung percussion rhythm with a chopped sample from Jackson 5 classic I Want You Back as the up-and-comer, ironically enough, informs an ex that he doesn’t want her back – as it turns out, life without her is just fine, thank-you-very-much. Topped off with a few rapped bars from Kanye West (originally found on Brandy’s Talk About Our Love), the record has an undeniably catchy vibe, but is it truly, um, superb? If you think so, you’ll be able to hear Fantastic and plenty more songs about girls on Rocki Evans’ aptly-named More Songs About Girls LP, due out next Tuesday, April 6.
