Sean Kingston – Beautiful Girls

First Hit #1: August 11, 2007

This is the worst song ever recorded.

That’s my personal opinion, of course, guided by the fact that the chorus makes me want to jab a screwdriver into my ear. It’s got the problem that endemic to 2007 – it’s very repetitive – and it’s even got a bit of gratuitous autotune on the backing vocals. The primary issue is that it’s just very annoying, the chorus – which trivializes suicide as well as being incredibly dumb in its own right – grates at the best of time. Once it got ubiquitous, what was annoying became enough to get me seething with rage. Not helping matters is that the whole affair seems to be built on the Christmas section of a preprogrammed Casiotone.

It’s awful, it’s lazy, it’s too repetitive, and it makes me hate absolutely everything I can see.

Not everyone is going to hate this bit of watered down reggae nonsense, but I absolutely loathe this song.

    The lyrics mix gangsta bravado with, “Who cares what others think of our relationship” and “If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, make an ugly woman your wife.” At least the latter song came from Jamaica. It’s hard for me to hate completely on a song which samples “Stand By Me” so thoroughly, The new melody is fine, but I can’t defend the autotuning, neither now nor almost ever.
