Rockabye (feat. Sean Paul & Anne-Marie)
Best song around by far! Clean bandits music is amazing, Anne-Marie stunning voice & Sean Paul well, a league of his own. Such a meaningful song, shows the group know what real life is live, this is a group that I wish I could meet.
I really like it! Gives a good story about struggling mother's and shows though sometimes it's bad, everything will be ok.
Meaningful lyrics sung by the beautifully paired voices of Anne-Marie & Sean Paul over a pleasing melody of dancehall beats intermixed with slower "lullabye" sections... Great song!
I can't even tell you what this song means to me as a single mom of a four-year-old son. I loved Sean Paul before this song but he can pretty much do no wrong in my eyes now.
This song as well as the video are awesome. The lyrics are touching and if people just take time to listen to them they will understand what this different world from theirs is all about. All they need is to be a little open-minded to stop judging. And, if they truly take a few minutes to listen to the lyrics and watch the video, all it will do is touch them! How can anybody remain cold when it comes to a loving mother and her young child having a close relationship? After all, she is willing to sacrifice herself and pole dance in order to provide for her six year old who needs to go to school and have as much normalcy around him as possible. Her son is happy, not sad and you can tell he doesn't feel judged and just that is a huge accomplishment on her part. She is doing her best and, her best at this point is more than good enough if you ask me. This is a work of art!!! Personally, I would make sure as many students and parents see this in a school surrounding...I think this is where it would have the biggest positive impact if followed by a discussion period.
It would be a great song but features Sean Paul's verbal diarrhoea in it. I know there's a radio edit where he's omitted but I cannot find it to download.
