“I’d Do Anything…” – Fat Joe’s “I Won’t Tell” Video

12.18.07 10 years ago 27 Comments

Usually, if the beat is wrapped tight, I can vibe to almost any song.

It doesn’t matter if the flows are as paralyzed as Lake Superior in January, the concept conveys more cheese than Kraft, and the lyrics are elementary, if my head’s bouncing, there’s just no denial on this front.

Good thing for Don Cartagena, because his new and completely cliche video for his utterly unoriginal single, “I Won’t Tell,” is like an apartment occupied by Sean and Dee Loc – a complete wash.

If you thought I was using a lot of punchlines now, listen to Fat Joe in this track. With zero depth, this typical single from the Terror Squad boss is nothing more than a poor attempt at “grown-folks music.” Actually, with the R&B feel, it just might have been better off as a J.Holiday solo track.

Regardless, the beat is sizzlin.

Produced by Steve Morales, the multi-track to this cut carries the vibe of a Carribean getaway in the middle of December. Not only do the slightly-uptempo drums hit with precision, they complement the mellow mood of the song perfectly. The layered synth-whistle, lush harp and sparkles put the listener on cruise control, picturing plush living, palms trees and daiquiris.

So, with music this hot, I can’t help but leap off the cliff with the rest of the lemmings. Joey’s sub-par song will definitely crack my rotation.

That is until I find the instrumental.
