Good for him. Anyone else think that "Locked out of Heaven" song has crazy Police (sting) vibes? Pretty good song.
I was at a outdoor street festival and this cover band started playing it. And I start dancing and say "good! Finally an old song. I love the police"
And I got laughed at. Cause it was that song. Hadn't heard it

writing your own bad music < performing a better song well even if you didn't write it
Performing a song you wrote on your own at getting to #1 > Song written by 6 other people and has Mac Miller on it

Check that again, because that song he wrote "on his own" was actually written by four people.

My mistake. Still, he wrote it. Also, no Mac Miller.

Sounds like your real beef is with Mac Miller. And essentially the only reason he was chosen is because he's around the right age, popularity level, and white. And if you're against the same prevailing stigma against interracial couples that still pervades popular media then by all means, we are on the same side in this discussion.

But that goes to blame more on hesitant label reactions to audience perceptions. I wouldn't fault the (great) song for it.

I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about, outside of the song being a bland pop song with an awful rapper.

It's all good. I will. When she stops doing her bad Mariah Carey impersonation and making forgettable pop music, lets talk.
