24 October 2012 – Kanye West – Golddigger (ft. Jamie Foxx) / Stronger – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

Scott, imma let you finish, but this is one of the best videos of all time.

In all seriousness, Kanye West might be a gigantic jackass, but he makes some catchy, compelling music.  This song is really sparse musically – a little horn, mostly heavy bass and drum – but combines the hip-hop rap style of Kanye with the soulfulness of Jamie Foxx’s voice.  It’s a nearly perfect song.

Kanye has a tendency to make perfect songs.  This one, a tribute to his bravado, is far less sparse, and still, despite the fact that he’s a complete jackass lyrically, is brilliantly catchy.  Lyrically, it’s cocky, but any song that can make an Apollonia reference is OK with me.
