Maroon 5 Succumbs to the Random Rap in a Pop Song Fad
on April 20, 2012
Love this band and have all their albums. I'm 48 and grew up on all genres of music. I was around when rap first got it's big start on MTV and liked a lot of the early stuff. You could understand the lyrics, it was melodic and mostly not profane and raunchy. That has all changed. I just don't understand why so many pop singers/bands feel the need to add a random (usually unintelligible & vulgar) rap in the middle of their songs (i.e., Katy Perry, Nelly Furtado...). Most of the time, it doesn't even fit within the song. That's particularly true in this case. Why Adam, WHY? This is a perfectly good song, just re-record it without the ridiculous rap! Please somebody stop the madness.
