Outasight knows a good time, and on his fun-loving debut record Nights Like These, the Yonkers, New York, native has a blast mixing pop, rock and rap into a potent cocktail. Opener "Let's Go" takes its title literally, kicking in with hand claps and a serrated guitar riff as Outasight heats things up with motormouthed flow, while the uplifting "I'll Drink To That 1" builds with careful acoustic picking and cinematic spirit. "Ready Set Go" drives forward with a bright electro thump and more of Outasight's playful raps, and the smooth crooning and hypnotic, pulsating club beat of "Under Lock and Key" drips with emotion. It's a party record, and it's due November 27th.

Song Stories


Mariah Carey | 1995

Serendipity stuck when Mariah Carey rediscovered the glitchy Tom Tom Club hook, a sample of which is the heart of this upbeat slice of dance pop. "I had the melody idea for 'Fantasy' and I was listening to the radio and heard 'Genius of Love,' and I hadn't heard it in a long time," Carey said. "It reminded me of growing up and listening to the radio and that feeling the song gave me seemed to go with the melody and basic idea I had for 'Fantasy.' I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
