Rivers debuted this one at one of our Decomposed sessions, alongside co-writer Jermaine Dupri. There was a loose jamboree-chant goofiness to the track in that early iteration. And then news broke that Weezer would be joined by Weezy on the album’s Raditude version. So many of those words would seem so bizarre to a =w= fan in the Pinkerton era; at this point, those same fans are either watching through cracked fingers as Cuomo keeps pushing his skewed populism to its illogical extremes, or they just let Rivers run free from their minds long ago. Or, I guess, they are fans of the slowly Jonas Bro morphing Weezer and are super incredibly psyched about everything Raditude related, from its track names and Kenny G live collabs on up. But to the point: Here’s the Polow Da Don-produced “Can’t Stop Partying,” now less a jamboree, more a sorta morose paean to Patrón with a lazy Weezy verse. For you:
Raditude is out 10/27 via Geffen.
