There are very few men who can get away with laying around surrounded by beautiful women without looking kind of lame. (Sorry, almost all rappers.) But American singer Mayer Hawthorne manages it somehow. His is a very unique blend of sleaze and nerd – so it works perfectly.
Dressed in tropical boardshorts and tuxedos, Hawthorne basically just hangs out with a bunch of model-types and implies that he gets laid all the time. This would be kind of gross if the song (and he, himself) weren’t more on the sweet side.
‘No Strings’ is another semi-crooner but with a Hawthorne’s playful edge. His whole vibe is like Frank Sinatra meets R Kelly, or something like that.
