Can’t Stop Now has a focused groove to start things off; Jelani Lateef sets the stage with the sequenced beats before laying down his inimitable flow. There’s a number of influences that are jockeying for dominance here. There’s a bit of 1990s NYC rap (e.g. Jaz-O, Nas) mixing with a bit of California rap (E-40, Too Short). Lateef makes a big splash with one of the catchiest choruses that we’ve encountered lately. The second half of Can’t Stop Now has both the instrumentation and the lyrical content pushing the other to a higher level. This is one of those bangers that will have fans singing along long after the song ceases to play.
