‘Digital Girl’ is the fouth single from Jamie Foxx’s ‘Intuition’ album. It is not Foxx, however, that makes this track stand out to the hip hop community, rather the features by Drake and Kanye West.
Drake fever seems to have really set in leading up to the fourth quarter of 2009. Having inked a deal with Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment, the Canadian rapper is set to release his first studio album ‘Thank Me Later’ this winter. Drake mixtape ‘So Far Gone,’ which spawned several singles, has only increased the buzz surrounding his highly-anticipated debut album. Whilst it could be argued that his performance on this track wasn’t exactly outstanding, especially when compared with West, it demonstrates the young rapper’s industry presence and gives an insight into where the industry is heading.
Kanye West, on the other hand, provides the highlight to this single. Infamously unpredictable when it comes to musical styles, West seems to be enjoying his return to rapping. Although this single is hardly ‘Ye at his best, I would consider it a warm up. With several high profile collaborations and a number of other projects, the next chapter of the Kanye West story is unlikely to disappoint.
