Daft Punk ft. Pharrell Williams
You might not expect the new track from French electronic duo Daft Punk to be an old school disco ode – but that’s exactly what it is.
Featuring Pharrell Williams on vocals, the track has more in common with Earth, Wind & Fire than “Around The World”, with sleek synth lines and a jaunty melody. But lord, it’s nice they’re back.
Bow Down/ I Been Done
Probably the most telling lyric of “Bow Down/ I Been Done” comes before the minute mark, where Beyonce sneers ‘I took some time to live my life/ But don’t think I’m just his little wife.”
In fact, if you had any ideas about abandoning Beyonce for another pop diva, this hard and fast cut from her upcoming LP Mrs Carter will sort you out quickly – pitch altered raps compete with slick vocals above the chewiest, most screwed up beats that producer Hit-Boy could muster up.
