We don’t throw around the term “panty-dropper” too often. Robin Thicke’s a given, Trey Songz is occasionally awarded the title and now I can safely say that Mike Posner’s can and should also be added to that list.
Slated to appear on his forthcoming album Sky High, Mike Posner’s new jam is called “Looks Like Sex” but if you want my honest opinion, it also kinda sounds like sex. Maybe it’s Mike’s raspy voice or maybe it’s the fact that his phrasing is so seductive, but Posner might soon have the monopoly on baby-making jams.
The song begins with some slinky synths, perfectly complimenting Posner’s gritty vocals. The booming drums give the song heft and set the atmosphere for Mike’s perfect pick up line: “That ass makes me wanna ooh, ooh, ooh/You know exactly what you do, ooh, ooh/I would really like to take that home/Everybody here knows/She looks like sex.” And Posner’s so suave that even while singing about a great ass, I’m pretty sure the lady in question doesn’t feel the least bit objectified.
The song goes on and as Mike repeats the hook several trillion times, and we can almost picture the video: Mike is with his entourage in a sweaty yet posh club. He spots his prey, struts over to her like a boss, and in about three seconds flat has closed the deal and is on his way home to get it on watch a chick flick with his ladyfriend. Done and done. Get yours, Posner.
