To put it lightly, "Donkey" makes today's radio fodder seem revolutionary. I really thought we had reached rock bottom when Brantley Gilbert released "Kick It In The Sticks" back in 2012. It seems as though Blackjack Billy had something to say about that when they released "The Booze Cruise" last summer. And when Tim McGraw released "Lookin' For That Girl" I honest to god thought they couldn't do worse if they tried. Well... they did worse. I'm passed the point of being angry or disappointed about it. At this point it's hilarious. It's as if label execs are playing a huge game of "who can release the biggest pile of crap to radio".
"Donkey" features processed vocals, obnoxious melody and production, coupled with lyrics that basically go like "I'm gonna ride a donkey to the club and have sex LAWL". There is literally NOTHING listenable about this song. I can appreciate a good novelty song, but this... this is embarrassing to not just country, but music in general.
I say this with caution, but I truly believe that we cannot get any worse than "Donkey". It is deeper than bottom of the barrel. It goes through the barrel and smashes the concrete beneath.
RIP good Jerrod Niemann.
