What's the story?
Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and Jermaine Dupri are just a few of the superstars who've taken note of newcomers Chester French, a duo of two recent Harvard grads (D.A. Wallach and Maxwell Drummey) creating pop music with a hip-hop nuance. SHE LOVES EVERYBODY, the group's first single from their forthcoming record, Love the Future, gives a tongue-in-cheek account of a guy who's smitten with a promiscuous, controlling girl. The video takes an oddly serious turn, depicting the duo being beaten nearly senseless by a dominatrix-type woman.
Is it any good?
She Loves Everybody demonstrates that a good song doesn't have to be complicated: the tune is built around a basic but catchy melody and repetitive yet memorable verses. Lead singer Wallach adds pure, plaintive vocals that pull the whole track together, resulting in one of those sticks-in-your-brain (in a good way) songs. Despite the great sound, however, the song's allusions to promiscuity and the video's violent scenes make them too mature for the tween set.
