The 7 Stages of Listening to Shane & Eboni Pearce's "I Like"

This month New Jersey based artist and Them Cloud Kids co-founder Shane and his potentially-life-ruining-shade-of-hazel-eyes had the audacity to team up with his fellow singer Eboni Pearce to put out a song that was part Erykah Badu's “Other Side of The Game” and part Drake's “Doing It Wrong” and I gotta level with y'all I ain’t been right ever since!

5. Confusion

When the second hook comes in I started to evaluate my life like maybe I should hit up...

6. Happiness

But then thankfully the beat came back and I was just like...

7. Dissatisfaction

Then it was over and I was just like....

You can check out the visuals for “I Like" below but don’t act like you haven’t been warned and try to blame it on the retrograde. I already pulled that trick.
