I wonder if this will be the big song of the summer. When I lived in New York, particularly in Harlem, it seemed each summer there would be one song that I heard constantly throughout the day, from cars and apartment windows and those guys who walk around with boomboxes on their shoulders; although that doesn’t seem quite so common anymore.
