B. Slade, née Tonéx, Anthony Williams or any other number of other monikers, pays homage to the '80s' Minneapolis sound popularized by the likes of Prince with his latest track, "Sexy B*tch."
The party-starting song is meant strictly for the dance floor, thanks to guitar strums played by Jamey Arent and bass from Kenneth Diggs II. The two create a funk-infused groove that's more memorable than the Akon-assisted David Guetta track of the same name, and does much to modernize the sound despite the intro having a bit of Timbaland flare and at times sounding like something Adam Lambert might sing.
It also packs energy, as B. Slade lays out self-penned lyrics listing out his likes about the sexy woman on his arm and his confidence that "she's looking for a tiger." Clearly, he's convinced he can be that for her, and we can be convinced, too, as he roars through the bold tune with backed-up boasts, a killer beat and a few lines borrowed from Janet Jackson's "You Want This." This is one jam that's sure to be filling out party mixtapes over the next few months.
