Slim Thug - Smile

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Slim Thug
  • Track: Smile
  • Producer: Jim Jonsin
  • Album: Boss of All Bosses

Houston's Slim Thug admitted to our own DJ Z that, as far as choosing a follow-up to Boss of All Bosses lead single I Run, his prioridad numero uno was to “keep it street.” As it turns out, Slim's label had other plans, and the emcee may want to reconsider his decision to quit hitting the gym (as he discussed in last week's exclusive interview)—the new single is aimed squarely at all the females who'd like nothing more than to pose for a picture with the Houston icon. Asking a lucky lady to “Smile for the camera,” Slim goes on to tout his “supersized swag” and, of course, blow off all his haters as I Run producer Jim Jonsin dresses up a tried-and-true chord progression in swirling synths, arpeggiated bells, and sweeping strings. Smile may not be “street,” but it has undeniable hit potential—here's hoping the single serves its intended purpose and has women nationwide flocking to record shops on the 24th.
