Coinkydink Or Coinkydonk? Day-O-Gimme-A-Break

This is a true Coinkydonk or Coinkydonk because it is a coincidence… or not.

Both Lil Wayne and  Jason Derulo have recently released new singles that sample the same song!  Sure, it’s different parts of the delightful ditty, Harry Belafonte’s Day-O, also known as The Banana Boat Song from Beetlejuice, but still.

  • Lil Wayne’s 6 Foot 7 Foot
  • Jason Derulo’s Don’t Wanna Go Home

Derulo’s song also heavily samples a song by Robin S. called Show Me Love:

Which incidentally happens to share the same name, Show Me Love, as a song by a Swedish pop star named… Robyn:

In closing, doesn’t Lil Wayne bear an uncanny resemblance to Howard Stern semi-regular, Beetlejuice?

"Weezy and the Beet"

Who am I kidding… I’ll just have two single guy anthems.  Women, you can keep yours.
