Sk8ter Boy, Play Hard

To begin a week of new hip hop releases is Wiz Khalifa’s , “Work Hard, Play Hard.” The song begins with Amber Rose in a construction outfit…just kidding! It actually just depicts construction imagery and different aspects of an everyday 9-5.

Here is a link to the video:

If you have already watched the video or heard the song off of hotnewhiphop.com you might see that the melody on the hook might resemble a particular female Punk Rock artist. Avril Lavigne, the Canadian singer- songwriter had a major hit single called, “Sk8ter Boy” in 2002 off of her debut album, Let Go.

Here is a link to her video:

Apparently Wiz and Amber have sk8ter mentalities since they are drawing inspiration from Avril Lavigne. I am not here to judge as we all draw inspiration from different places; just acting as a bridge between old and new and thank you.
