Song: Change
Artist: Yolanda Be Cool
Album: Ladies and Mentalmen

Oddly, I just assumed Yolanda Be Cool were a straight-up Swing-House band in the vein of Parov Stelar based solely on their international smash "We No Speak Americano," but that's not really the case at all as you can't find one moment in their full length debut with that sound.  Don't assume!

"Ladies and Mentalmen" is a club/dance record with elements of hip-hop, vocal house, reggae, world, and pop utilizing a long roster of various vocalists, with Crystal Waters being the most prominent.  Waters was on the albums first single "Le Bump," but I've been going crazy for current single "Change" featuring Nola Darling that starts with a nod to Honey Boo Boo.  Nothing wrong with that!
