TRACK REVIEW: The-Dream – AK-47

The-Dream 1977

Written for DIY

Ever the populist, Terius Nash – unsung writer of Beyonce’s and Rihanna’s best songs – has penned this ode to the best-selling automatic rifle in the world. Actually, it might be a metaphor for sex or something. It usually is, in his case. This auto-tune-heavy track, from the expanded version of his online release 1977, is a typically falsetto-foul-mouthed, ingeniously constructed pop gem by the R&B love king, with a hint of the bruised ego found on the rest of the infamously revealing break-up album. He’s the R Kelly it’s okay to like more than three songs by.
