This was an easy week. Hip hop artist T.I. released another single off his Paper Trail album, “Live Your Life”,and this one features Rihanna, but the most remarkable thing about the track is the use of samples of the “Numa Numa song” (actually “Dragostea din tei” by the Moldovan band O-Zone) made famous as an internet lip synch video by Gary Brolsma in December 2004. Managing to produce an edgy, musical hip hop track while using samples from the Numa Numa song is an impressive feat, and deserves a Song of the Week nod.

The video of Live Your Life is not due out for a couple of days, but I will post it as soon as it is available. In the meantime you can check out the track on MySpace or TI’s official site.

The preview:

In the meantime, the original Numa Numa Dance….
