Plies ft. Keri Hilson - Medicine

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Plies
  • Track: Medicine
  • Feat. Keri Hilson
  • Producer: Polow Da Don
  • Album: Goon Affiliated

After hearing Plies pay tribute to a woman/sexual euphemism with the borderline-unrhymable name of "Becky" on the lead single off his forthcoming Goon Affiliated LP, I was half expecting the rapper to one-up himself with a follow-up centered around, I dunno, oranges (hey, he is from Florida). Though I found that cut's slight lyrical awkwardness hilarious, Booth readers who didn't share my amusement will be happy to hear that second single Medicine is much, much lighter on the forced rhymes. If this mellow love jam rings a bell, there's a good reason: a version of the record with Three 6 Mafia as the lead artist and Gucci Mane as guest feature was leaked to the 'net back in July. Since then, the rights to Polow Da Don's tuneful, keyboard-driven beat have been purchased by Plies' people at Atlantic Records, who also elected to retain Keri Hilson's silky-smooth chorus. With Plies' sing-song sex talk and a catchy melody to boot, Medicine has undeniable hit potential, but will it be enough to cure Goon Affiliated's no-release-date-itis? For now, we can only speculate...
