With a slow, smooth beat, you might think that Shawty is a love ballad. But before you peg Plies as this year’s Ne-Yo, take a closer listen to the single, featuring T-Pain. With lyrics threatening beat-downs to any who would cross his lady, and a warning that he might “F**k up your whole life,” this song has a definite edge. Although the vocal effects seem a little out of tune, this tight number ought to do well.
