Good evening readers, welcome to the first of two reviews released on MikeyMix tonight! The first track we will be discussing is the latest release by producer and DJ, David Guetta.
Guetta‘s latest track, entitled ‘Light My Body Up’ was released today and is a collaboration with Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne. This is the fourth time Minaj and Guetta have worked together and this track definitely proves that they are far from finished making hits.
The beat of the track is incredibly bouncy and I can definitely see this song being a hit in the clubs around the world. The bars provided by Minaj give some serious ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ vibes (could this potentially be a teaser as to how Minaj‘s upcoming fourth album may sound?), the chorus is also strong as it has given Minaj the opportunity to fully utilise her vocal talents.
Lil Wayne‘s verse on the track however is quite forgettable and I feel like if he wasn’t featured not much would’ve changed with the track as his contribution wasn’t much compared to that of Minaj‘s.
I first heard this track a couple of hours ago but I have to be honest and admit that I have had it on repeat for a while as I do thoroughly enjoy the track: it’s nice to see Minaj return to the rap-pop sound of her second studio album.
My two biggest critiques for the track have got to be: Lil Wayne‘s contribution and the abrupt end of the track, it feels like theres something missing.
With all the above in mind I will be giving this track a 2.5 out of 5 star rating because although the song is good I can already see it being overplayed on the radio and I just know after 100 plays I’m going to get bored of it.
The overall production of the track isn’t anything special either and this is definitely “just another David Guetta track”.
The track is available for purchase on iTunes and is available for streaming on all streaming platforms: Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal
What did you think of the track? Let me know in the comments below and I’ll be sure to respond!
Until next time: stay safe, be happy and keep on jamming!!
