Poker Face? I hardly know her!

I dont think that is Common or Kid Cudi to the right of Kanye, but its probably close enough...

I don't think that is Common or Lady GaGa to the right of Kanye, but it's probably close enough...

Collaborations. Samples. Super groups. In this post-modern era, it doesn’t take much time for a chart topper to become sample fodder for another chart topper. So when I stumbled on this track whilst shamelessly perusing PerezHilton, I wasn’t shocked that the CURRENT number 2 song in America is now the lead hook for what is bound to become another chart topper. The Lady GaGa sample is AMAZING, and it sounds like some solid Kanye production on the track. Speaking of Kanye, his verse is refreshing: no auto-tune, not too much singing, no lovey-dovey crap. Just smooth Kanyeezy flow and hilarious innuendo (“… I love college / gettin’ brains in the library / cuz I love knowledge”). Kid Cudi shows that he really can drop a verse here and there rather than a repetitive-yet-catchy chorus, and Common just tears it up like always. Seriously folks, this song is bound to be a hit very very soon… so good!
