Leighton Meester “Somebody to Love” f. Robin Thicke



Fresh from the cult of Gossip Girl, this 3:32 of pop ecstasy negotiated a maze of dead-end links (here’s my nod to the team at Universal Republic) into my iTunes folder and has been on repeat ever since. It was produced by music mastermind Mike Caren, whose credits include seeing to the chopping and screwing of albums by T.I. and Twista, Juvenile’s Reality Check, “Swagger Like Us,” Handsome Boy Modeling School, and can you believe it? Asher Roth’s “I Love College.” Quite a man, who, at only 17 years old, became the Manager of Rap Marketing of Atlantic’s ‘Big Bear’ imprint.1 Partial production credit goes to Oligee, who Wikipedia has not yet honored with a stub, but runs a pretty tight MySpace with cool photos. Well done, all!


  1. Which, we assume, had nothing to do with this.
