EDM is the new wave of the future for music. No, seriously. Ludacris is the latest artist to jump on the bandwagon of EDM craze with his latest single “Rest Of My Life” featuring Usher and David Guetta. Usher opens the track with his airy vocals to the house-electro production by David Guetta. Luda raps, “They say what don’t kill me can make me stronger/So two drinks tonight should help me live longer.” The song isn’t exactly innovative. Like any other EDM track, expect to see 20 somethings fist pumping when this drops in the club.
“Rest Of My Life” is the follow-up single to “Representin” featuring Kelly Rowland from his forthcoming album Ludaversal. In comparison, well, there really is no comparison between the two tracks. “Representin” is what you’d expect from Atlanta rapper with its bass and seductive lyrics. It sounds like Luda! “Rest Of My Life” on the other hand sounds like he’s just doing something that will get radio play or top charts because its the new “it” thing to do. But Luda’s in a league of his own as a rapper. He doesn’t need to do what’s hot at the moment. And if he does, it should sound original. “Rest Of My Life” just sounds forced.
