The latest leak from the forthcoming Carter IV is a case of the mentor (Lil Wayne) trying on the style of the protege (Drake). "She Will" is emo-rap, a moody ode to a loose woman, complete with a brooding beat by T-Minus and plaintive chorus rap-crooned by Drake himself. But in the verses, Wayne can't repress his playful nature, or his way with punchlines. "Some people hang you out to dry like a towel rack," Weezy raps." I'm all about 'I' – give the rest of the vowels back."

    “American Girl”

    Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

    It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
