Here's the opening of Rae Sremmurd's "Come Get Her," a nicely produced, lyrically questionable song off the debut album SremmLife:
"Somebody come get her, she's dancin' like a stripper
Somebody come get her, she's dancin' like a stripper
Somebody come tip her, she's dancin' like a stripper
Somebody come get her, she's feelin' all the liquor"
Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo decided to cover that song. We don't know why. And Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo decided to post a clip, above, of the cover of that song. We, again, do not know why. We would have accepted "No Flex Zone" reworked as "No Sweater Zone," but not this. Never this.
(We also would've accepted Cuomo just linking out to this killer Kanye/Weezer mashup album, Yeezer.)
In less uncomfortable news, Pitchfork is speculating that Weezer may be teasing a White Album to follow their self-titled albums colloquially known as the Blue Album, the Green Album, and the Red Album. On Wednesday (Jan. 13), the band changed the profile photos on their social accounts to blank white boxes.
After a four-year quiet spell, Weezer returned in 2014 with Everything Will Be Alright in the End. In October 2015 they popped back with "Thank God for Girls," which has a loco video. There's also a new one called "Do You Wanna Get High?" We're guessing now that it's a plea to Rae Sremmurd.
