The fact that Lil Wayne has recorded and released a single titled Star A Fire is the definition of irony. Is there another artist, not named Drake, who sparks as much dialogue as Weezy F? To answer my own rhetorical question, no, no there is not. As for the song itself, the record co-stars Christian Milian, who plays a "hot girl" that Wayne, strangely, tells his mother about in the song's pre-chorus. The veteran R&B singer and Young Money signee suggests they burn it up, romantically speaking, with her man playing the role of the lighter. In the end, if you're a fan of catchy, pop-driven innuendos, there is a lot to like about this single. If you don't, you might as well cross Tha Carter V, Pt. 1 off your gift wish list; it's due out just in time for the holiday shopping season on December 9.
