“Yeah, a lot of people notice that. Lemme ask you a question.”
“Beyoncé dropped her record today?”
“Did it break?”
She didn’t actually drop anything, Bob.
“Then I am officially confused.”
Music doesn’t get released anymore: it gets dropped.
“When did that happen?”
Around the time of hip-hop’s ascension and the corporatization thereof.
‘Releasing’ is just as nonsensical. An eagle nursed back to health gets released; prisoners get released: music is just made available for purchase. It’s all just euphemisms.
“I’ve noticed you enjoy the sound of your own voice.”
Yeah, lots of people notice that.
