Cori B., ‘Do My Thang’ – Song Review
The preteen performer sings about partying, dancing and just generally doing her thang. What, you thought she was going to follow in her dad’s footsteps and release a song about hoes and blunts? Actually, that would be hilarious, but Cori’s target audience is kids her age, so don’t worry, parents — the song is squeaky clean.
The opening line, “Finally made it to the weekend,” induces an immediate, dreadful feeling that Cori B. might be another Rebecca Black, just singing about her favorite day of the week. Thankfully, that’s not the case.
Cori continues: “Feel the music of the beat play / Got the spotlights on me / Pay attention, I can show you / How to do things my way / If you feel it, turn it up / Everybody put your hands up / If your body can get enough / We’ll party tonight all night, tonight’s the night.” Cori’s vocals may have been aided by some digital technology, but she sounds much older than her 10 years.
With its generic synth beats and recycled “Hey!” background chants in the chorus, ‘Do My Thang’ wouldn’t hold its own in the world of mainstream pop. But as a fun track aimed at the Disney/Nickelodeon demographic, it’s more than acceptable.
We’ll have to wait and find out if ‘Do My Thang’ leads to a full-length album. Snoop certainly has the industry connections to make it happen!
