March is already a huge month for music – and it’s only just started. The Jonas Brothers dropped a new single, their first new release since Nick, Joe and Kevin decided to go their separate ways in 2013. It’s a big deal, apparently.
But what you probably didn’t know is that other artists – particularly 2 Chainz and Solange – also released new albums that have been unfairly overshadowed by the Jonas Brothers’ return.
Their song, yet another iteration of the stereotypical pop anthem we’ve come to expect from the JoBros, is called “Sucker.” It’s an ode to their significant others, distinguished by the hook “I’m a sucker for you.”
Everyone loves it. I seem to be one of the only ones who isn’t particularly impressed – in fact, when I told my suitemates I didn’t like the song, they promptly slammed the door in my face.
I respect their opinion. But let’s talk about Solange. Let’s talk about 2 Chainz. Their albums, titled "When I Get Home" and "Rap or Go to the League," respectively, are far more deserving of the praise that people have showered so lavishly upon the Jonas Brothers. Empowering, revolutionary and insightful, these albums are real. They remind us that music can be a work of art, a tool for social change, a medium for personal expression.
