article imageReview: Paramore rocks on new single and video for 'Ain't It Fun' Special

Paramore's latest radio single "Ain't It Fun" is making its way up the Billboard Hot 100 charts, reaching No. 13 this week.
This new song is not your typical Paramore. It has an R&B, soul and gospel vibe to it than when you initially hear it on the radio, you will not believe that it is Paramore. I, for once, did not realize it was them the first time I heard the song on mainstream radio. The upbeat tune was co-penned by lead singer Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York, and it can be found on their self-titled fourth studio album that was released via their record label, Fueled by Ramen.
It is about a young adult coming to terms with the fact that the world does not revolve around them and that one cannot depend on their parents for everything. It is a huge wake-up call that is done in a manner that is both sophisticated and ironic.
"Don't go crying to your mama, cause you're on your own in the real world," Hayley Williams sings and subsequently emerges as a modern-day Tina Turner. The inclusion of the gospel choir in there is pure genius.
Their music video, directed by Sophia Peer, commences with the announcement that on December 2, the acclaimed rock group is attempting to break the most world records in a video, and for the duration of the video they managed to succeed this goal.
The Verdict
One thing is for sure. Their song's music video seemed like a great deal of fun to do, as they attempted to set all of these world records. The song displays their growth and maturity as a vocal group. The tune garners 4 out of 5 stars.
