Krizz Kaliko unveils a Birthday song, “BB” with T-Pain. Stream, buy, mp3 download.
But on their new single, “BB (Birthday B*tch),” Kaliko and Pain turn back the clocks with a club banger meant to celebrate a legendary 21st birthday.
Over an instrumental sure to bring listeners right back to T-Pain’s mid-2000s club records, Kaliko gets things started with a verse setting the scene for what is sure to be somebody’s crazy 21st birthday. And after an electronic and echo-y hook, T-Pain does exactly what T-Pain does: the Florida rapper spits a verse that paints a picture so vivid you can practically see exactly where he’s at in the club or, in this case, where he’s at (and who he’s with) after the club.
At a combined 83-years-old, this type of record isn’t exactly what fans expected from Kaliko and Pain, but “BB” is a pleasant surprise that provides more nostalgia than anything. T-Pain and club bangers go hand-in-hand and, after a stretch that included Pain’s revelation that Usher said he “f**ked up music,” it’s nice to hear the autotuned crooner back in his bag.
Krizz Kaliko – BB (ft. T-Pain)
My shawty made it 20 laps around the sun
At 12 o’clock it’s ’bout to be 21
At 1 o’clock everybody gon’ have to come off that
And she’ll be coming ’round the corner when she come to my bed
