"What if You Would Just Come Right Out of These Clothes, You Can Finally Feel the Wind When it Blows"

I'm finding it harder and harder to dislike anything I hear from Sean Kingston. Most of his tracks are borderline pop, sing-songy anthems, but they're catchier than those Deadliest Catch style Alaskan Crab pots. There's just something about that Jamaican accent mixed with a little autotune (that isn't too over the top, settle D.O.A. fans) and carefree, upbeat lyrics. I feel like Nicki Minaj is becoming somewhat polarizing too with her audacious outfits and somewhat in your face demeanor. I'm becoming somewhat of a fan though, she definitely adds to this track nicely with that South Jamaica Queens based accent on the track.

Looks as if this is going to eventually be a video, give the making of the video a look.

I call it feel good music, you may call it over-manufactured pop, but live a little, these tracks are harmless feel good anthems perfect for summer. For all you who care and overanalyze like ya boy, Dutty isn't anything more than a West Indies pronunciation of the word dirty. Like any "cool" phrase these days, dutty can also have a positive connotation, i.e. "those kicks are dutty" meaning fresh or hot.

In the context of this track with the bridge:
What if you would just come right out of these clothes
You can finally feel the wind when it blows
Don't be scared to be free to let go, show it off
Feel like letting go
Oh oh oh oh
I'm taking it as a description of a really cool girl who has an edge side that is fun, but fun of inhibitions. Yea, I'm a dreamer who chugs life by the glass but still claims it's half full, but I feel like this track was an anthem for the escapades I got into last weekend in Tampa. More specifically at The Venue where "Everyone is a VIP"...or at least outta-towners unafraid to dance themselves clean while getting a little damaged. #idontgetdrunkigetsodamaged

Regardless of interpretation, this hits the spot for a mid-tempo, feel good summer hit that's meant to be played on repeat...try it...oh and this goes out to those dutty gyals in the Tampa/Clearwater area...special daps &lbs to Aylissa...pretty sure we took stares all night like the elevators weren't workin', think Save The Last Dance style on the dancefloor...#goodshit
