Last week was a break from the usual hip-hop and dance songs that dominate the Worst of Music series. This week, it’s a return to the same old with a hip-hop song that even uses autotune. The worst song this week is by someone calling himself Trey Songz featuring Nicki Minaj with Bottoms Up.
Not surprisingly with a title like “Bottoms Up,” there’s a lot of talk about drinking. And there’s also a fair bit of implied hooking up with drunk girls. I guess even when you’re a hip-hop superstar like Trey Songz, it’s not as easy as shooting fish in a barrel. The song goes down hill fast when Nicki Minaj starts up. Her rapping doesn’t sound the slightest bit natural as if the computer did all her work for her. And what the fuck is with the shout out to Anna Nicole Smith? Random and unnecessary. If it wasn’t WoM worthy before Nicki started, she definitely sealed the deal.
So congrats, Trey Songz. You’ve won the prestigious Worst of Music award for this week.
