TALAAAA. Do you have a bonsai sized cheetah on your lap in that pic? Because that's what it looks like. And if seeing is believing...I want to know where to acquire one. My guess would be Ebay. Anyways, we're here to talk about this song, not your bad-ass miniature pet. "Tell Me" is such a winner. That's not to say it doesn't have a few things working against it. All the names in that title are a real mind-fuck. Like, when I read it I thought I might be having a stroke. But then I pressed play and my world was brighter. When I hear it I feel like I am underwater. There seem to be Mulan-type gongs in the background. And to top it off, there are some spliced up synths that are giving me straight Justin Timberlake/Timberland vibes. If that sounds like a cluster-fuck, you're right. But it's a beautiful hot mess. Also shoutout to WA$$UP, the Korean girl group present on this track. I was convinced based off the dollar signs that you were a member of the A$AP clan. That is basically the equivalent of thinking that Mike Tyson is Michelle Kwan. So yeah, a real plot twist.
