Song: Tek It (disputed year...we'll get to it)
When I'm playing "Ryan Radio" on Apple Music, I usually skip unfamiliar songs when passengers are in my car. I'm scared to try new things, and the inner teacher in me knows the importance of watching/listening to something before sharing it with the class. I'm not Tipper Gore, I'm all for doing what you want with your art, but if I've got a couple in their mid-70s in the backseat, I'm not gonna risk subjecting them to songs with subject matter that could potentially offend olds. I gotta keep that rating high.
Luckily, I rolled the dice last weekend and let "Tek It" play through when an algorithm of my past plays and tastes suggested it. I'm not entirely sure how old it is; I thiiiink it came out in 2019, but the album wasn't released until 2021, and its video debuted earlier this year. No hyperbole; I've listened to "Tek It" at least 30 times over the past week. I cannot get enough. It's IMO shitty writing and basically says nothing, but this song is simply "a vibe." It's incredible, and I may count it as a 2022 song for year-end blog purposes.
