ALBUM TITLE : NIGHT SPORTS
ARTIST : 3OH3
GENRE : POP / EDM
DATE RELEASED : 2016
The first track “Fire In The Heaven” sounded like a musical background of a Drake rap song or a Wale song. This alone could fuel a disappointment if you are looking for a Keisha type of music which they did with “My First Kis” in their early album. You might be wrong if you judge the album based on the first track alone. For an EDM band, it is quite uncanny if they venture into sounds which you would mostly hear in many rap artists. In fact, with this adventure, you can say that this EDM band from Boulder, Colorado is trying to push their mark to become more relevant to musical consumers.

Indeed, they were successful with tracks like “BASMF,” “Mad AT You,” and “Freak Your Mind.” These tracks can be mistaken for a Jason Derulo, Drake, or Chris Brown tracks. However, they even went further by producing a novelty type of song “My Dick,” which guys out there would definitely play on forever on their players. Who wouldn’t when it has funny lyrics like
” Every time I look at my dick, I’m like “Holy shit, that’s a big dick”
And every time I look at your dick, I’m like “Holy shit, that’s a small dick” or this line
“My dick is bigger than Mr. Clean
So fresh you can swish it like Listerine
Your dick look like Adam Levine
My dick like Pinocchio nose.
This album is not a huge disappointment, in fact they just achieve what they want when it ocmes to offering a more commercial album. With regard to listeners or consumer reception, that is another matter. I rate this record 3 stars out of 5 stars.
