Everyone needs a comedic savior, someone whose DVDs you can count on for a laugh, even if your day ended with your boss handing you a pink slip. In that sense, Steve Carell is my personal Superman. Canadian emcee/singer/producer etc. k-os, making his DJBooth debut today after a long and storied career (our bad), might pick Will Ferrell though, and after you hear Faith you’ll hear why. Produced by the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Faith is a smoothly chaotic (Get it? His name is k-os! Anyway…), that sounds like a Yamaha piano – understated, dark, and polished. Love him or hate him, guest star Drake can’t be faulted here; with an almost whispery aggression, he delivers his high-syllable verse immediately after a fitting sample from Will Ferrell’s The Anchorman flick. It’s k-os’ playground, though, and his equally clean verse and soul-soothing power on the hook remind us that this party was his idea – Drake just happened to receive an invitation. Many other great artists received an invite to jump on k-os’ newly released The Anchorman mixtape too, so be sure to check it out (Faith included).
