Ta-Ku - American Girl (ft. Wafia) (Estelle/Kanye Cover)

Straight up, this is the sexiest song I've ever heard. Holy shit you guys! If this can't get you pregnant, nothing will. Of course, half of this credit needs to go to Estelle (ugh and I guess Kanye), who was unfairly just mentioned in a Buzzfeed quiz entitled "Do You Remember These Obscure 00's Pop Stars?" SHAME ON U BUZZFEED. Estelle is queen. But while Estelle and Yeezy provided A+ material, Ta-Ku and Wafia have really transformed this song. For starters, they changed half the lyrics to say "Girl" instead of "boy." No but for real, this cover is a stripped back (and perhaps improved) version of the disco-infused original. The production is smooooooooothhhh. The drawn out piano is sensual. The base is sultry. The vocals are hot. Just when you think it can't get any better, they add strings. I feel like I probably made everyone uncomfortable with this review. well fuck you! If this song soundtracked every Nicholas Sparks movie ever made, Hunger Games would no longer be the hottest franchise, I tell you this much.
