A Chick And A Dude Review Drake's 'Find Your Love'

While the Internet kids still try to decide whether Drake's second single, "Find Your Love," is an emo jackpot or an underwhelming sing-a-long, two of VIBE's resident critics, Tracy Garraud and Chris Yuscavage, took to the IM box (and their iTunes) to hash out their opinions on Toronto's great half-white hope. 


i was taken aback by how experimental he went

usually artists dont go that route for their debut

they just basically glorify whatever the hell made them popular in the first place

which is both a good and bad thing

Good point. He's also been successful, pun intended, doing a couple different things now, though. So I was more surprised that he went SO heavy with the singing on this one

Like, as a guy, I automatically know that this song isn't for me 30 seconds in. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, but...

yeah this is definite pander

but it works!

here's why

if there's a guy in class

who always brags about being a great singer

and consequently

sings in your ear all the time

it's insincere

there's a different agenda there

but when you have the dude who doesn't uphold himself as a profound vocalist

just the regular guy


i cant sing, but ima try

LOL, this is a great explanation



the everyman is killing it these days

Very good point

my question for you is, how much should we applause this?

on the same level as a trey songz?

does he get more credit bc he can't sing?

I was JUST about to say that. If I'm Trey right now, I'm like, 'Damn, Drake! I thought we were boys!' 'Cause this all up in his lane...I could see him singing this exact song and killing it

But you're right

I don't know if you get the same reaction if this was Trey singing


yeah not at all

i think right now it's all about vulnerability

Because Drake sounds like he's struggling emotionally on this one...And the fact that he's not a true singer adds to it, for sure



who wouldve thought

the way to woo a woman

was to pop in a song by a nonsinger

hahaha! Times are changing!

tis true my good fellow!

Go out to the club and hear your favorite rap song by someone that's not really that good of a rapper....then head up and pop on your favorite song by a guy that can't REALLY sing. Way of the world today, I guess


how do you feel about this sounding like a relic from 808s and heartbreak? 

It really does. He's definitely on his Kanye ish

Know why I know this song is a hit? I've now listened to it enough times to barely even pay attention to the words and it still sounds like a hit.


Advice from Drake

There's a great way to determine what to do with your life


but the question still remains

when is this dude going to SPIT

that's what propelled him here

where is ransom?

ignorant shit?

Very true. I think it'll be on the album. It's gotta be.

i just dont want him to pander too much to the females

they weren't with him in 08

I feel like WE want to hear that....But 10 million other people don't. This is what they want to hear. Drake singing, Drake making "Over." I'm convinced there will be at least one or two joints on the album that WE are like, 'DAMN!'

he couldve at least given us a street single though

come on

yeah, the street single woulda been nice.

I think it'd have a whole lot of people less nervous

than they are right now


i was caught so off guard by this

i felt deceived


but this shit is mega catchy

i want to hate it

It's gonna catch on. For sure...

And just wait....in 2 months, you will HATE (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) this song

Because this is the type of song that Hot 97 is about to have on back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back

now this would be a quintessential rapper...

drake doing hooks

j.cole doing verses

they are each other's weakness and strength

a hybrid of them would be RETARDED


i hope that collabo mention wasnt just for blog fodder

Nah, I figure they gotta do SOMETHING in the future.

But who knows....

yeah, drizzy may not want to be next on cole's slaughter list


final thoughts!


Drake, congrats on having another hit on your hands. The Drake haters are definitely about to be out in full force...but this one is a winner


P.S. Start rapping again....soon


here's my note

Drake, you have enough panties on stage. If I throw mine, will you rap?



and we out!

Pharrell And Robin Thicke To Pay $5 Million In "Blurred Lines" Lawsuit

Marvin Gaye's estate has finally settled its lawsuit against Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke regarding their 2013 hit single "Blurred Lines." A federal judge reportedly ordered the duo to fork over nearly $5 million in damages to the Gaye family, Billboard reports.

According to a ruling from Judge John A. Kronstadt, Thicke, Williams and William's company More Water From Nazareth Publishing Inc. will each have to pay $2,848,846.50 in damages. Thicke will have to pay an additional $1,768,191.88 and Williams and his publishing company will pay another $357,630.96 to the Gaye family in separate payments regarding their lawsuit. In total, the damages amount to $4,983,766.85.

The Gaye estate is also entitled to receive interest on the damages against each party and will receive a  running royalty of half the "Blurred Lines" revenue.

As previously reported, Marvin Gaye's estate filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Williams and Thicke back in 2013. They claimed their single sampled Gaye's 1977 hit "Got to Give It Up" without permission. Both Williams and Thicke's legal team attempted to get the case thrown out but were denied an appeal in Mar. 2018.

Oprah Responds To Viral Video Of Her Eating Unseasoned Chicken

A hilarious old video of Oprah Winfrey making an uncomfortable face as she dives into a piece of unseasoned chicken has been circulating the Internet all week. While these sort of silly videos wouldn't usually garner a response from the billionaire, Oprah surprised everyone when she shared a video explaining the chicken-eating experience and her initial reaction.

To give you some context, the video is a clip from The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2006, in which O invited her guest Anna Ginsberg to make her award-winning chicken dish. After one bite, it became clear that Oprah wasn't too pleased with the chicken's bland taste. She even asked at the time if she could add a little seasoning.

I often think about the time Oprah did a cooking segment with a woman whose chicken recipe won $1 million, and Oprah's jaw dropped when she tasted it and realized the lady didn't even add seasoning pic.twitter.com/rfs7PS1Jc3

Now, more than 10 years later, Oprah is setting the record straight. In her new video posted on Instagram on Thursday (Dec. 13), she noted that she likes to provide a pleasurable experience for her guests but also live in her truth. On that particular day, she was presented with a dilemma. "I was having a moment of trying to decide: Do I want her to have a great time? What is my real moment of truth?" she said. "Because the truth for me was that I'm used to having salt and pepper on my chicken. That's just the truth...That's what I was thinking, 'This chicken needs some salt and pepper.'"

So that's that; Oprah has spoken. She may have played it off at the time, but like many others, she would prefer her chicken with seasoning.

Kanye West Calls Out Drake For Sneak Dissing: "Stop This Already Bro"

Clearly, Kanye West is still holding onto some ill feelings about Drake. The rapper recently reignited his feud with Drizzy in an epic rant on Twitter on Thursday (Dec. 13) until the OVO artist was forced to call him back.

It all started when Kanye shared a screenshot of a text asking whether he wanted to give Drake clearance for the 2009 song, "Say What's Real," which samples Ye's past track. Seems like a simple request, but it turns out, Kanye has been trying to get in contact with Drake for the past six months to no avail. So, Kanye unleashed a series of tweets, putting Drake on blast.

"Been trying to meet with you for 6 months bro You sneak dissing on Trav records and texting Kris talking bout how’s the family," he wrote, mentioning his past collaboration with Travis Scott on "SICKO MODE."

He also brought up past allegations in which Kanye was accused of telling Pusha-T about his secret son. "I told you I ain’t tell Pusha about your son," he added. "It’s all love bro bro but don’t play with me. You stay too close to be playing all these industry games bro... I would never intentionally try to hurt you bro I never even heard none of the diss records That ain’t my MO never did a diss record."

Kanye also furthered the rumor that Drake bought out the first two rows at Pusha-T's show in Toronto and hired people to try to jump him. "Buying first two rows at Pusha show got me hot bro," he continued. "Stop this already bro. You getting people hurt out here And over what."

After 34 minutes of ranting however, Kanye revealed that Drake had finally picked up the phone to call him, most likely in response to the madness online. A happy Kanye responded: "Mission accomplished." Drake seemingly responded to the rant on Instagram shortly after the call as well, with a string of laughing emojis.

So clearly all you have to do to get Drake on the phone is tweet about him until he gives up. Check out Kanye's tweets below.
