In moments of relaxation, it’s not a bad idea to revisit Terrace Martin’s sublime ode to Marvin Gaye with 2010′s, Here, My Dear.
“I Had No Idea” masquerades as a chameleon of sorts. Smooth enough for night portion of cookouts, but heavy enough in content to draw from our own experiences, Martin’s wizardry – both vocally and instrumentally – acts as the ideal and polar opposite host to Kendrick Lamar’s aggression-filled rant to a young woman who played him for a fool one time too many.
A prelude to aftermath of Sherane, perhaps?
