Single Review: Travie McCoy – Billionaire (ft. Bruno Mars)

“I wanna be a billionaire so fricking bad
Buy all of the things I never had
Uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen”

I’ve had this stuck in my head all week!

Gym Class Heroes frontman, Travis (or “Travie”, as he now goes by) McCoy has released his debut solo single recently called Billionaire, featuring the vocals of Bruno Mars (yes, the same Bruno Mars from B.o.B’s hit single Nothing’ On You).

This song is an ode to what McCoy would do if he had a billion dollars (which I am sure he is on track now). The lyrics are somewhat hilarious with McCoy declaring he wants to be on the cover of Forbes magazine, pull an Brangelina and adopt a bunch of babies, and visit Katrina hit areas amongst other things. The rich-aspiring track combined a lot of live instrumentation with reggae acoustics, coupled with a summer-infused vibe.

Awesome track! Love the beat and sound of it. I can totally smell a summer anthem in the air.

Let’s not forget about Bruno Mars. He kills the hooks again with his smooth vocals. The newcomer will be dropping his debut EP titled It’s Better If You Don’t Understand on May 11. I can’t wait for a single from this dude.
