Chromeo - Jealous (I Ain’t With It)
The song premiered on BuzzFeed yesterday and is officially available on iTunes.
“Jealous (I Ain’t With It”) is the fourth single released from the electro-funk duo’s newest album (out March 12th). With over four years since their last release, it’s great to see little more pop than what we’re used to with Chromeo but with their same touch of their introspection and commentary.
Did I mention it’s catchy? Damn, is it catchy. And before you are filled with despair at the catchy, slightly-typical chorus (especially after a year of “Blurred Lines”), check out what Dave 1 (the lead singer) said about the inspiration behind the song:
Guys are all schmucks, let’s face it. I don’t know why music constantly extols this fictitious macho fantasy persona — we’re all just puny insecure oversize children. And it would be funnier to embrace it.”
