Conor Maynard Feat. Wiley - ‘Animal’
It needs less of Maynard and a lot more Wiley
There’s an episode of The Simpsons where Bart leads a trip to Shelbyville to recapture Springfield’s famous Lemon Tree. On the mission, flouncing nerd Martin is paired with arch-bully Nelson, who reluctantly finds himself having to provide muscular protection for his weedy companion. This is how I imagine Wiley feels about Maynard on this track. It needs less of Maynard and a lot more Wiley.
