Cobra Starship, ‘You Make Me Feel…’ Feat. Sabi – Song Review
Synthpop band Cobra Starship have recruited singer/rapper Sabi for ‘You Make Me Feel…,’ a new track from their upcoming album ‘Night Shades.’
Backed up by a simple beat and minimal synth arrangement, charismatic frontman Gabe Saporta sings about finding the girl he’s been missing:
“Girl, I’ve been all over the world looking for you / I’m known for taking what I think I deserve, and you’re overdue.”
Sabi, a newcomer who scored her first big break by rapping on the Britney Spears track ‘(Drop Dead) Beautiful’ from ‘Femme Fatale,’ provides the chorus and the “na-na-na-na-na” melody that carries the song as Saporta sings “You make me feel that…,” but never quite finishes the thought.
‘You Make Me Feel…’ is more understated than some of the group’s previous work, but it feels like a potential summer hit.
Cobra Starship have been unleashing sassy pop songs on the world since 2006. (For a limitless supply of entertainment, scan their complete discography, which includes song titles like ‘Being From Jersey Means Never Having to Say You’re Sorry’ and ‘Pete Wentz is the Only Reason We’re Famous.’)
They recorded the ‘Snakes on a Plane’ theme song but didn’t score a major hit until teaming up with Leighton Meester for ‘Good Girls Go Bad’ in 2009.
‘Night Shades,’ featuring ‘You Make Me Feel…’ and another leaked song, ‘Don’t Blame the World, It’s the DJ’s Fault,’ is expected later this year.
