“Slow It Down” is the new single from the human R&B song factory The-Dream, and it’s about how everyone should stop making fired-up top-40 EDM and make some slower, sexier songs instead. So naturally, the video isn’t about any of that stuff; it’s a narrative thing packed with ’50s signifiers and romantic longing and ass-shots. It also has Fabolous casually tossing a football around onstage, like a secondary character on Happy Days or something. I really like it. Watch below.
The-Dream’s new album IV Play is out 5/28 on Def Jam. Also, there is a very real possibility that Fabolous is better at slick R&B guest-verses than any other rapper in history.
