Music collaborations 2013: Good and bad
Bad: Fall Out Boy / 2 Chainz: "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light 'em Up)"
This video isn't the collaboration even if it's credited as one. No, it simply stars 2 Chainz (the real collaboration is here
). We acknowledge that FOB's return from a four-year hiatus was greeted with glee
in many circles. And yes, in the time they've been away, 2 Chainz has become kind of a big deal. Still, you're Fall Out Boy. Why on earth would you ask the Def Jam rapper to remix your comeback single? It borders on a chilling reminder of Sum-41's ill-fated team-up with Ludacris
. The lesson, as always: Pop-punk and rap just don't mix.
