French rapper/club girl Uffie (born Floridian Anna-Catherine Hartley) hooked up with Pharrell for this new single off of her upcoming debut, Sex, Dreams, and Denim Jeans. Mirwais, who helped out on much of the album, produced this track, and it sounds much more like something out of fellow Frenchies Justice’s playbook than most of the stuff Pharrell has been up to lately. Which is probably for the best. His verse is kind of lame and unimaginative, and is mired in a layer of Auto-Tune that sounds a little dated at this point.
By and large, though, this is a solid club track, and not nearly as frenetic as the title might imply. It starts out with a revving enging, and would sound good blaring from the back of a truck.
People accuse Ke$ha of stealing Uffie’s style, and the opening line “I wake up in the morning/I don’t know where I am” is reminiscent of “TiK ToK”‘s “Wake up in the morning feeling like P Diddy.” But, of course, this is better.
Sex, Dreams, and Denim Jeans has been delayed for a while, but will be out later this year on Ed Banger. [via Nah Right]
