Well you knew it was coming. After the massive success of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Ni**as In Paris off their hit album Watch The Throne, it was only a matter of time before everyone and their momma jumped on the bandwagon and created their own version of the song. T.I. dropped his version back in October, and a slew of other big-name stars — including Chris Brown, T-Pain, Game, Trey Songz, Young Jeezy and Busta Rhymes — have also done verses over producer Hit-Boy’s lilting beat.
Next up to bat are Pitbull and former “Watagatapitusberry” co-star Sensato with ‘Latinos in Paris.’ Rapped in both English and Spanish, Pitbull and Sensato drop lyrics like, “Flow so hard that chico get crazy/Este chico esta loco” and “Yo voy en una moto en pantaloncito/Porque yo no me recolta un dominicano in Paris.” The video was shot by David Rousseau who has shot numerous videos for Pitbill including “International Love” with Chris Brown.
I’m glad Pitbull and everyone else on the bandwagon are getting a little shine, but I hate the fact that music has gotten to the point where instead of being inspired by one another, artists seem to only want to copy one another. Where’s the originality??
