"Baby You Summertime Fine, I Let You Get On Top, I'll be the Underline"

Throw this is in the category of high profile collaborations that did not disappoint and fully lived up to expectations. Off of J. Cole's new mixtape Friday Night Lights that dropped last week, the track is laid out over a soft piano beat that draws you in, hinting at an R&B undertone. Surprisingly though, the track lacks a true R&B hook and instead is more of a mid-tempo seductive track where both @jcolenc and @drakkardnoir do their absolute best to entice the ladies into a replay of the night before...morning after style.

Notable too is the effect that all this touring is having on Drake's voice, which comes off hella raspy on this track. Between this track and interviews with Sway, it sounds like somebody needs a break. When it comes, it'll be short too because he's set to tour Europe with Cole in January.
Ladies no matter if you summertime fine or wintertime cold, it's never a bad decision to hit it in the morning. My favorite line of the track, delivered by Drizzy Drake (of course)...
"I mean you kinda like that girl that’s in the US Open
I mean I got this hidden agenda that you provoking
I got bath water that you can soak in
Things I could do with lotion"
The sexiness is subtle, classy and delivered in a way that on first, second and third glance, appears to be irresistible to ladies' ears. Indulge folks, doesn't get much better than this in current Hip Hop, two stars entering/in their prime getting together on track that allows them to shine as lyricists and prove why they are the ones setting the bar these days...
