The 5 Most Underrated Songs of 2011
Time to check your iPods. The year is almost up and you’ve probably overlooked a lot of music that you should give a listen. Songs that were released but deserve more recognition than they received. Here are five of 2011′s most underrated songs (in no specific order).
Royce Da 5’9″ – “Merry Go Around”
Royce Da 5’9″ is known for being lyrical in his content. So there should be no surprise that he delivered just that on this record. He tackles the downside of his journey throughout the years, losings close friends and gives an insight on his past friendships. The Eminem produced record can be found on his newly solo studio album, “Success is Certain”.
Big Sean ft. Pharrell – “Get It”
This particular record is an album cut off Big Sean’s debut album “Finally Famous”. In a combination, Sean’s motivational rhymes in”Get It” led to be my personal favorite on the album. The beat gives you that smooth, laid back sound with a topping of soft drums. The record also features Pharrell Williams, who also produced the Finally Famous track.
Frank Ocean – “Can’t Be The Last Time”
Frank Ocean is no stranger to good music. He has recorded so many songs that it’s understandable to look over a track. “Can’t Be The Last Time” is one of them and it can be easily stamped as “album worthy.” The track was produced by Gil & Vince and appears on the unofficial Frank Ocean mixtape, The Lonny Breaux Collection.
Although The-Dream’s pen game is insane, it wasn’t necessariily the lyrics that made this record complete. The detailed guitar strings and 70′s inspired production sets the self-produced song off. The nine-minute Prince imaginative track, which debuted exclusively on Roc4Life, showcases Dream’s falsetto in the first half and drastically transitions into a sped up song in the latter part.
K’La – “All Your Love”
K’La’s “All Your Love” is absolutely refreshing. She kicks off the song with soothing vocals and represents for the ladies who know what they want. Towards the end, K’La switches it up and ends the love song with a few bars.
