Let me tell y'all, going from The Women of the Movement to "Lick" takes some adjusting, LOL.
Ok, I listened to the song, and then I watched the music video (WOW), and my overall take is that it's better than I thought it would be, but it's not as good as it could be. I was expecting a dancehall song, but "Lick" is actually a Murda Beatz track with a dancehall artist on it.
The intro is catchy; I'm fck'n with the beat just like I did when I first heard it on Chloe's "Have Mercy." That is my first issue with the track. It sounds like an alternative version of "Have Mercy." If I am going to call out Drake for remaking his own songs, I gotta give Murda the side-eye too.
Now, I do not doubt that Shenseea is talented, but she sounds too repetitive, and I hate that I cannot really understand her. Megan Thee Stallion carried the track for me, especially with that flow switch. I will be rapping Meg's verse👅.
As for the music video...that was wild. Megan looked so good!
SOUND AWWWF ON "LICK"
