Dudes, are you feeling at a loss for words this Valentine’s Day? Don’t worry, steal just about any amorous line from Nigerian-American rapper The GTW’s track “Blow Me Away” and your special someone, or prospective special someone, will act like you handed them a rose.
The song, which features the vocal talents of Danny Brusco, is a tribute a head-turning young lady who inspired such lines as “Misses, you blow my senses/You and I should raise the census.”
Once more on the ’90s tip, this has that loose, genre-bending Daisy Age feel — but successfully updated for, like, this week. (Yessss! Bring it all back!)
But, getting back to his smooth romance. You can tell by his presentation that, apart from his prodigious talent, he’s just an average guy. So, come on. If he can do it, so can you.
For more material, download his freaking brilliant mixtape Don’t Smoke the Cigarette free and raid it for all it’s worth. It’s chock full of great lines to try out. Plus, with its mix of funk, house, kwaito, and other various vibes, well, it’ll blow you away.
Watch the video, ‘cus it probably wouldn’t kill you to rip a page out of his lookbook either:
