berhana - Janet

Berhana!! I will strongly resist the urge to call you Benihana, because I'm digging you and your first single "Janet". First off, this song is bringing the people multiple Fresh Prince of Bel-air references. Clips of the show are interspersed throughout the track, and the title comes from actress Janet Hubert, who played Will's Aunt Vivian. As a 90s kid, I have to respect this. I mean, I never watched the Fresh Prince of Bel-air, but I feel obligated to act excited it about when other people discuss its pop culture relevance. And Will Smith was so awesome before he raised monstrous kids.*** Anyways, I'm getting off topic. This song rocks. It's a prime slice of indie R&B. Makes me want to wander through bum-fuck Brooklyn in summer with my friends and eat popsicles. There are legit pop hooks in it. The most obvious comparison to make here would be Frank Ocean. That riff is eerily similar to "Super Rich Kids." Watch your back Franky, Benihana is coming for you!!
