Pro-C, “Bad Memory (feat. K.Will)”
Pro C (short for Problem Children… yeah) is a rap duo from J.Tune, set to debut in a new boy band later this year. When I first heard “Bad Memory,” I was also aware that Pro C would be releasing a second single before the group debut, so I decided to wait for that to be released before writing about the duo. But I was pretty disappointed by “Love Hurts,” so I decided to just cover their initial single.
“Bad Memory” has all the right features to reel me in: acoustic guitar, relaxed beat, immediately catchy and easily hummable hook, traipsing rap, and (of course) K.Will. Pair all that with a decent video and I’m done for.
I first heard the song by watching the music video. While this can occasionally be a dangerous practice, I greatly appreciated the fact that Moos and Buffy’s faces are never shown in the video. The editors had to get a little creative and the dynamic lighting was great, especially how it made the minimal choreography look even more intriguing. The video basically said, “Here, listen to the music instead of rushing to the comments to tell the world about your ovaries exploding due to the physical attractiveness of these feasts for the eye.”
