Hours after the track went live on iTunes for those who pre-ordered his forthcoming People Keep Talking album, Hoodie Allen dropped the official music video for “Dumb For You”. This song is the second single off the album and it definitely highlights Hoodie’s tremendous singing voice. We’ve heard him put out hip-hop/pop songs where he sings a verse or hook, but his singing is especially placed in the spotlight in “Dumb For You”. He doesn’t even start rapping until 2 minutes into the song, which shows that labeling Hoodie as solely a “rapper” couldn’t be further from the truth. This is only the second song we’ve heard off the album (the first being “Movie”), yet we’ve already seen two prime examples of how versatile of an artist Hoodie is.
I have a feeling People Keep Talking is going to be an instant classic, so grab it for pre-order below!
