“They say this is a big rich town…” The intro music for hit series “Power” is arguably one of the most catchy show theme songs of all time. Not only does it serve as the perfect backdrop for the series’ drama, but it also bangs in the club–what a win-win. But on Sunday, when the first episode of the final season aired, fans were disturbed to find singer Trey Songs vocals replaced Joe’s sultry crooning.
Black Twitter erupted in anger, wondering why 50 and his team would opt to mess with an amazing thing. As the saying goes, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
But 50 wanted to do something fresh, telling BET he wanted to bring youth culture into it.
“It played for six years…any record I play for six years is good but old to me,” the mogul explained.
Despite his good intentions, fans aren’t feeling it. So 50 addressed the heat saying, well, he may just change it back. He captioned a video of himself addressing the feedback saying, “Y’all better STOP this bullsh*t right now.”
“These motherf*ckers talkin’ ’bout Trey Songz. Man, you ain’t even bought a motherf*ckin’ Joe CD in years, now you talkin’ ’bout Trey Songz. Trey did that sh*t as a favor for me, man. Sh*t, [if] y’all keep that sh*t up…f*ck it, i’mma have to put that motherf*cker back the way it was!”
He followed up his commentary with a hilarious meme saying #JoesVoiceMatters.
Just change it back, 50. Power to the people.
