Wiz Khalifa – ‘Work Hard, Play Hard’

It just about works

The first track from Wiz’s new album (‘ONIFC’, due out in August) is – unsurprisingly – all “diamonds”, “champagne” and “rolling up”. It just about works ’cos the beat’s good, but then comes the chorus – ‘Black And Yellow’ big, but completely mismatched with the verses either side. Record label bods are pulling Wiz in two different directions, and it shows.
