Following in the tradition of fellow production star Kanye West, [artist id="1161216"]Swizz Beatz[/artist] has conjured up Monster Mondays to dole out free joints on the Web featuring some of his celebrity pals. His latest offering, "Ass on the Floor," corrals [artist id="3217246"]Diddy-Dirty Money[/artist] into the mix for a slickly atmospheric dance-floor-filler.
Reinvigorating the rapid-fire drums made famous by Major Lazer's 2009 party must-have "Pon De Floor," Swizzy adds the spacey sheen of synth chords as the Dirty Money ladies croon about drowning their sorrows over a frustratingly volatile relationship.
"You're the love of my life/ But you hurt my heart twice/ Now I'm drunker than a motherf----- / Trying to find my way back to your heart you motherf-----," Kalenna sings.
Production duties aside, Swizzy plays hypeman, commanding the lovelorn souls to forget the drama and "get ya ass on the floor/ Them haters can't tell you nothing!"
The track's amped-up rhythm is somewhat at odds with the melancholy lyrics, as Diddy also laments potent heartbreak in his verse.
"That love's gon' get ya, motherf----- / Smoke weed, listening to Sade/ I left my pain in Paris/ Why can't you see sh-- my way?" Diddy spits.
The vibe of the song definitely stays on track with the naked emotion the Bad Boy mogul promised on the trio's long-delayed effort, Last Train to Paris.
"One of the things we're trying to represent is emotion," Diddy told MTV News last year. "Not being afraid to show emotion on record. A lot of records out right now — no disrespect to them, but they're all surface. It's about what people have or a dance. All our records are gonna be about love, feelings and emotion. Last Train to Paris is a love story and the most vulnerable album I've ever been involved in. It's raw emotion — you get a feeling, a vibe."
In addition to his Monster Mondays series, Swizzy has been staying busy in the studio and recently previewed some joints from his upcoming Haute Living album on Ustream. Tracks included a thumping midtempo banger featuring Chris Brown, and another song boasting the breathy vocals of his [article id="1650147"]new wife Alicia Keys[/article].
