Chromeo - "Jealous (I Ain't With It)"

In the four years since their last album, Canadian duo Chromeo’s brand of electrofunk is more “in” now than it ever has been. “Jealous” takes advantage of that fact: It’s bold, propulsive pop, and it’s easy to hear the immense appeal of the song, which could piggyback on the success of “Get Lucky” and “Blurred Lines” to become massively popular. It’s the fourth song we’ve heard from the new album, following the Toro Y Moi collab “Come Alive,” “Sexy Socialite” and “Over Your Shoulder.” Listen below.

  1. It is no “Get Lucky” but it’s definitely one the most pop sounding things Chromeo has done yet.

  2. I don’t expect we’ll be hearing this on the radio like blurred lines or get lucky, which is sad because Chromeo is better than most of the garbage that gets played constantly on the radio. And that includes the new Pharrell song.

  3. It’s certainly better than another Canadian group’s attempt to piggyback on the success of “Get Lucky”:

  4. Lyrics: 4/5 Clever as always
    Verse: 4/5 Nice, interesting development

    Overall sound: 4/5 definitive Chromeo without sounding stale
    Production: 3/5 Just imagine the sound if this got the investment top bill artists get with their music
