When Alicia Keys said she was going to do some crazy collaborations with The White Stripes for her next album I was excited.
I just didn't expect her to do two bland ones with Bono (although one that was for a good cause) and Cham.
Ghetto Story has a classic 90s raggae sound. It's been a big hit in the Caribbean for years. Akon & Alicia just fuck that up.
The girl lived in Hell's Kitchen. It's wasn't the best of places in the 90s but damn the girl is starting to stretch it.
I like Akon. His collaboration with India.Arie is great. His one with The PussyCat Dolls was aiight. The dude doesn't have to collaborate with every artist he hears though.
