Track2Track: Love Affair
Paige Howard. A movie that was written and shot by the Oklahoma City team Daily Devotion became more than just a movie. The Christmas Eve premiere was shown in a local theater room in Oklahoma City. And by the end of the movie it was clear that more was on the line than awards and accolades. There are still real life consequences. Consequently it was when you really stopped and looked around the room that you noticed the people who were genuinely happy to see each other, and genuinely proud of the team of people that had put so much into a project. As the movie ended and the applause from the audience began, it was nothing but love that filled the theater room. This was an important moment in time. This same feeling is most felt on the Paige Howard Soundtrack that became more than just a soundtrack. It became a celebration of the bridge that was built between Oklahoma City and Tulsa, the perfect "Love Affair".
When Grand was rappin like Spitta,
Love Affair is the last track off the "Paige Howard Soundtrack" that tells the tale of two cities bridging. Along with a video video that showed scenes from the Paige Howard movie as well as the two cities coming together as one. Chris "The God MC" Cain one of the best storytelling MCs from way of Oklahoma City starts out the track by comparing the different styles of Oklahoma artists, and shows by the end of the verse that Tulsa and Oklahoma City have more in common than they even knew. And Tone was rappin' like Nas too.
But there's two sides to every bridge and for Tulsa it's Steph Simon. Steph Simon is also one of the best storytellers in his own right. He continues to tell the story of how Tulsa and Oklahoma City have came together and built a family.
From Eastside to the Northside,
If I had to sum up "Love Affair" into one word it would be reminiscent. Two of the best storytelling reminisce on how we got here. Whether traveling down I-44 or Route 66 the track proves that the two cities were never that far from each other. We were always paying the same tolls. And it's comparisons like Bobo's Chicken and TNT Wangs that are sprinkled through both verses that show that we were never that different. The only complaint I could have about the song is that it's short. But maybe that's OK because there is still so much story between Tulsa and Oklahoma City to be written. It's truly a "Love Affair".
