"South Of The Border" moves from #63 to #17, making a Jump of 46 places on The Hot 100, which makes "South Of The Border", This Week's Power Hit..
“South of the Border” is the second track on the 2019 album ‘No.6 Collaborations Project’ by Ed Sheeran. The song features vocals by Camila Cabello and rapper Cardi B.
‘No.6 Collaborations Project‘ follows Ed’s collaborations EP series, left off at #5 in 2011. The 2019 album contains a massive list of collaborations from Eminem, 50 Cent, Bruno Mars, Skrillex, Khalid, Travis Scott, Stormzy, Justin Bieber, Meek Mill and more. In an interview with Charmalagne Tha God, Ed Sheeran called this album a ‘compilation of artist that he is a fan of.’
“South of the Border” sings about this amazing “brown eyes” and “caramel thighs” girl Ed meets at a bar. They hit it off quite strongly and he is willing to cross the border to be with her. Theoretically, Ed is talking about a Mexican girl, as Mexico lies to the South of the USA. Coincidentally enough, the collaborator Camila Cabello is from Cuba, which is also further South of the USA.
The entire song has a sensual undertone to it, where Ed, Camila and Cardi B boast about what they find attractive in each other. Ed Sheeran and Camila Cabello act as the two lead roles in the story. Ed Sheeran describes her as a girl with “brown eyes,” “caramel thighs,” “long hair” and most importantly “no wedding ring.” Camila describes the guy as “green eyes.” However, Ed’s eyes are blue in real life.
Cardi B’s third verse on “South of the Border” drops some interesting views on love. She talks about risking what you have for greater gain and that is the way to live. She might be talking about her career move from being a stripper to being one of the most dominant artists in rap today. However, this lesson applies to love as well. Cardi B also mocks Ed Sheeran saying he might have “jungle fever.” This phrase is slang for a white person to have a sexual appetite for black or exotic women. Finally, she also claps back at herself for being the best version of herself–she is a mother of a baby, has a massive musical career going on, has a love life with Offset, and she never gives up on any of it. #SLAY
"Don't Call Me Angel", is a song by American singers Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey. It was released on September 13, 2019, by Republic Records, as the lead single from the soundtrack to the 2019 film Charlie's Angels."Don't Call Me Angel" is This Week's Hot Debut entering the Hot 100 at #35.
I keep hearing people invoke the Moulin Rouge soundtrack cover of “Lady Marmalade” — starring Lil’ Kim, Mýa, Pink, and Christina Aguilera — in speaking about the new Ariana Grande, Lana Del Rey, and Miley Cyrus Charlie’s Angels soundtrack single “Don’t Call Me Angel,” and I sorta get it, but I also don’t. It’s a successor to the 2001 hit in the sense that, yes, multiple famous women are singing together on the same beat. That’s the beginning and the end of it. “Marmalade” braided voices together that had been circling the same hip-hop and R&B/pop scene. “Don’t Call Me Angel” is something else, something that could maybe only happen in an era where everyone exists in their own tailor-made internet with their own little network of music-app playlists and Netflix and Hulu recommendations. “Angel” blends styles that sound fine alone but struggle to jell together, such is the vastness of the space between the singers present.
That’s cool, though. Ari’s in her zone skating around the elaborate network of interlocking notes designed by frequent collaborators Max Martin and Ilya Salmanzadeh, and Miley’s Music City–by–way–of–the–club drawl and timbre are adaptable enough to keep her from breaking anything here. “Angels” strains to figure out what to do with Lana, such as she exists now, as a singer who does her best work at half the speed of her peers in the biz, whose last album was closer in spirit to glacial ’90s northwestern indie rock than anything on the radio in this decade. The beat here slows its tempo to accommodate Lana, which is fine because it ran a little fast in the first place. In the end, “Angels” is less of a meeting of like minds and more of a ride from the pulsing center of a city past the limits and into the laconic stretches outside.
