B.o.B. sounds a surprisingly aggressive note in “Strange Clouds,” the lead single from his upcoming sophomore disc: Given the huge success he and Bruno Mars had last year praising beautiful girls all over the world, the oft-bespectacled Atlanta MC isn’t necessarily one you’d expect to brag about the number of rappers who wake up on his dick. But brag about it he does, over a dubstep-inflected beat by Dr. Luke that feels similarly pugnacious coming from that tween-friendly dance-pop king. Expect a preview of the new album (due out next year) at this sold-out club show, which B.o.B. is billing as “Strange Clouds: One Night Only.”
