Fifteen years from now, using the term “OMG” may be as dated as calling someone “Daddy-o” or saying “that’s so money” is today. But damn if Far East Movement don’t know how to write a catchy club song using whatever acronym they want. On “If I Was You (OMG),” their fourth single from their Free Wired album, the group gets some major help from G-funk godfather and our own Posted artist himself, Snoop Dogg.
Music today has few steadfast rules, but one is this: Adding Snoop to your track, even Auto-Tuned, is an automatic status upper. In “If I Was You (OMG),” the boys (whom we’ll forgive for their flexible use of grammar, as it should be if I were you) — and Snoop run around the club lighting shots on fire before heading over to a girl-on-girl steel cage wrestling match. Yep. Just another Tuesday.
With cameos by model Rosa Acosta and singer Natalia Kills, both Snoop and Far East Movement are clearly in their element, but don’t try to emulate them by wearing sunglasses in the club. You need a No. 1 song to get away with that.
