Richgirl dropped the highly musical “He Ain’t Wit Me Now Tho” (oh the irony, right?) last year it seems, but then we never heard from them ever again. Well, they finally put out a new single, “Swagger Right”, which features Fabolous and Rick Ross. The joint was produced by Dre & Vidal, and of course if you don’t remember, RichHarrison, producer responsible for Amerie and others.
Richgirl always stood out to me because of their strong vocals, and the one chick that looks & sounds like Beyonce’. No for real, I bet you can spot her LOL. This song…I’m not a fan of songs that have the word “swagger” in them — it’s just an instant fail and attempt to latch on to a (dying) pop-culture buzz word. I almost wished as well that there were other features besides these two rappers (just not Nicki Minaj LOL). Fabolous sounds bored with hip-hop and Rick Ross is just bellowing loudly about nothing as usual. It detracts from the group a bit.
The visuals are pretty standard, but I dig this song in theory. They went for a stripped down sound versus their previous single, which had many moving parts relative to this song. It’s a straightforward beat, straightforward beat…it’s safe. Even video wise. I would have hoped that they would have pushed the envelope a bit because “business as usual” is not what is making strides this time around. I look forward to what they have coming up, because there is definitely promise here.
