Lil Wayne f/ Christina Milian “Start A Fire”

Tunechi wastes no time to let loose the studio quality version of “Start A Fire” just hours after he and new beau Christina Milian debuted it at the AMAs. 

Wayne doesn’t hold back on the verses and on first listen, it’s easy to see why he had to be bleeped out for an awkwardly long time. It’s not unusual for longtime Wayne listeners so that doesn’t bother me too much. Milian sounds nice on the CDQ even though I can’t quite 100% get behind the lyrics… feels a little too cheesy. I’m not sure I’ll be bumpin’ this on the regular, but I won’t turn off the radio when it comes on this winter.

Find this on Tha Carter V (Pt. 1) come December 9th.

2014 AMAs Performances

The AMAs are ongoing at posting time and I’ll update as the night proceeds and the videos are uploaded to the interwebs.

The highlight for me so far was Lil Wayne debuting a new song from Tha Carter V alongside his new muse Christina Milian. It’s called “Start A Fire” and sounds like it could have some mainstream legs to it. Full song and explicit version TBD (Wayne’s entire second line was bleeped out for an awkwardly long amount of time… and it was probably fantastic.)

After Tunechi and Christina pranced off the stage, Nicki Minaj and Skylar Grey performed another rendition of “Bed of Lies” in all-white attire. It was a little strange to see some cuts of people dancing with it, but I appreciate that Nicki keeps pushing one of her deeper songs that doesn’t rely on sex appeal. Skylar’s voice was piercing throughout as she continues to slay those hooks. Always great to see the next A-list single she’s involved in.

UPDATE: The studio version of “Start A Fire” can be heard here.

More 2014 AMAs Performances by Iggy Azalea, Sam Smith & A$AP Rocky, Ariana Grande & The Weeknd, and Fergie with YG & DJ Mustard.

Added Mary J. Blige “Therapy”, Jessie J, Nicki Minaj, and Ariana Grande performing “Bang Bang”, and Iggy Azalea & J. Lo with “Booty” to close it out. Yup, this song closed it out. #JusSayin

Also debuted tonight: more of the “Guts Over Fear” video that drops in full tomorrow (or maybe with tonight’s midnight release of Shady XV) and Waka Flocka stars in a humorous commercial for Pine Bros. cough drops. I would rather watch this 5x than Fergie’s performance once.
