Listen To This: No One!

| Filed under: Listen To ThisMatisyahu

al_355e8459e2b34ed8adbb6bcf.jpg

This is gonna be a huge radio hit!

Matisyahu's latest, One Day, is one of those songs you know will have everyone singing along in their cars. It is pleasing on the ears, uplifting and extremely commercial.

The track features Akon, whom we wouldn't call ourselves a fan of but we sure like listening to him on songs.

Our only critique with Matisyahu's One Day is that it sounds A LOT like Alicia Keys' No One. But, hey, steal from the best, right? That song was a hit and so will this one!

    Matisyahu is amazing!!! Recently played at Higher Ground in Vermont. Best show ever. He is HUGE! Well over 6 feet tall & what a performer. One Day is a seriously awesome song - was his encore song & amazing!

    sounds good!



  4. 4

    It's a good tune but isn't it a hit already??? It's like the official song of the Vancouver Olympics already. Sounds a bit like K'naan's 'Wavin Flag' too.



  5. 5

    awful crap only an idiot would like



  6. 6

    omg Perez! it does not sound anything like it



  7. 7

    Glad you are finally getting around to noticing this wonderful song. Late, but hey, you finally caught up to the rest of the world!



  8. 8

    meh



  9. 9

    One Day isn't even really a new song… Too bad it took Perez so long to hear it! It's wonderful, just like all of Matisyahu's music. It's different than the first stuff he came out with, but so, so, so good.



  10. 10

    Yes. No one listen to this.



  11. 11

    A good start but it's lacking something. Can't put my finger on it but it sounds like a thousand other songs. Sorry Perez….



  12. 12

    first



  13. 13

    I'm confused, hasn't this been out forever?



  14. 14

    fcuking jew music, just as bad as those three old jews trying to rap that sounded like nails on a chalk board.



  15. 15

    love the song…I actually don't hear how it sounds like Alicia Key's song…it's an awesome song…



  16. 16

    Thanks for introducing me to a song I've been hearing on the radio (in KANSAS CITY) for the past MONTHS. Great "find" Perez. So you got lucky on a FEW artists that hit it big (and only ONE with any staying power); it doesn't mean you know anything about what the public is going to like. What was the name of that guy on your label? Hmmmm, even though you shamelessly and tirelessly plugged him on your site, I still can't remember his name . . .



  17. 17

    are u serious? this song has been around forever. do u think u discovered it? cuz ya didn't ya fat fuck. oh yeah, learn the proper usage of prepositions (like "of")



  18. 18

    Jew Power! Still, a bit to "electric" and overly produced for my taste.



  19. 19

    the original with out akon is sooo much better



  20. 20

    well i do prefer the original version of this song
    you know the one that came out a year ago

    but what ever
    i guess this i ¨new¨for perez



  21. 21

    I was unfortunate enough to hear a radio interview with him…wont shake womens hands for the moral?religious? uncleanliness of menstration so on & so forth…Please go & fuck yourself
    Religious righteous rap??? Kinda like punk conservative lullaby



  22. 22

    Don't you mean "Listen to this: One Day!"?

    Also, I'm glad that you finally chose someone with talent for this feature. Matisyahu is not perfect, nor is he very consistent, but he makes some great music.



  23. 23

    Love his music. Seems like he is losing his Hasidic look…hope not for the wrong reasons



  24. 24

    OLD! This has been on the radio forever. wtf?!



  25. 25

    the song is better without akon but the song is amazing, nonetheless. great stuff. jah bless.



  26. 26

    you are like 7 months late on this one Perez. songs been out since the beginning of the summer.but i do agree it is earfully orgasmic



  27. 27

    this song has been out for a long time you fucking douche

    and it doesnt normally feature akon

    you have no idea about music

  28. smore says – reply to this


    28

    Am I in the twilight zone- this song is so old!!! But will agree- very very good :)



  29. 29

    I like this one!!



  30. 30

    WHERE THE FUCK HAVE YOU BEEN PEREZ! This song has been out for a while now! Stop listening to all that shitty music instead.



  31. 31

    This was a hit 8 months ago. Are your for reals?



  32. 32

    this song isn't new… its been out for months, in fact its was on Sirius Alt Nation's top 19 in September



  33. 33

    Ummm you fat fuck this song isn't new..it's been out for a wile..the Akon part is new



  34. 34

    Uh I would like it if Akon wasn't on it. He's gross.



  35. 35

    Gee, Perez, is this going to be as big as that Leona Lewis song whose title I can't even remember? According to your expert instincts, it was going to dominate the airwaves, but… not so much, huh?



  36. 36

    Re: blacklily.of.the.valley – you're ignorant and an idiot.



  37. 37

    P.S. This song is awful and annoying.



  38. 38

    Sounds like too much autotune………=/



  39. 39

    I have been listening to and loving Matisyahu for years, he's a great musician.



  40. 40

    he is amazing, I saw him open for the Dave Matthews band in 06 and he is GREAT!!!!



  41. 41

    Re: ellied – Yes, a silly cocksucker like you would know



  42. 42

    This isn't even going to get any radio play at all.



  43. 43

    Really Perez? This song is old news, and it's annoying as hell. My local alternative rock station plays it (what seems like) every fifteen minutes. How can you possibly be this far behind? Come on, man!



  44. 44

    THIS IS A FREAKEN AMAZING SONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THIS SONG HAS BEEN OUT SINCE HIS CD DUMMY PEREZ TELL YOUR SISTER SHE WRONG SINCE SHE WRITES ALL YOUR GOSSIP



  45. 45

    are you kidding? I love Matisyahu and this song has been out for awhile.



  46. 46

    NBA 2K10 FTW!!!



  47. 47

    UGHHHHHHHH i fucking hate how e-v-e-r-y single song Akon does, he starts it by singing "aaakon and _______ (so and so). every single fucking song. i HATE him!!!
    matisyahu is good, saw him in nyc & rothbury. original is much better without that polygamist nag on the track.



  48. 48

    Perez, good pick, but you're usually more up to speed. Disappointed in the latency of this post. Get your act together, you're slacking!



  49. 49

    This shit isn't new, i heard this along time ago asshole.



  50. 50

    i'm sorry perez, but this song has been out for a long time. and it's A LOT better without akon. i'm not religious at all but i love Matisyahu :)



  51. 51

    Yeah …a little late to the party ..I was listening to this song last summer…It is a great song..spread the word



  52. 52

    me like !!



  53. 53

    Are you accusing him of plagiarism? Oh I feel a lawsuit coming! Perez is going down!!!



  54. 54

    Ok perez this is kinda old news i have been listening to this song for months and he is amazing we all know it



  55. 55

    i agree. sorry perez but they IS kind of an old song :/ but i will agree its amazing. i love him as an artist. it also happens to be featured on most of the commercials for the upcoming olympics



  56. 56

    Wrong!! Alicia Keys STOLE from Matisyahu, not the other way around, if anyone did any stealing! Mat's song was around way before keys, just cause YOU happen to become aware of it now does not make it fresh and new!



  57. 57

    he's a freakin tard….. Im so Jewish & so stoned. who are u really?? Get some sorta self that makes sense u fuck tard.



  58. 58

    I could have sworn I heard this song like, a year ago on the radio. Is he JUST releasing it as a single?



  59. 59

    damn Perez….did you really just hear this song? Its been around forever…and yeah…I like it a lot.



  60. 60

    lyrics lifted from a greeting card and noisy 'music' that sounds like every other piece of crap out there.. no thanks.



  61. 61

    Love MatisYahu is amazing- I go to the school in montana and he came to missoula's caras park for hemp fest. So cool! Best night of my life!



  62. 62

    This song is definitely not new!



  63. 63

    No, Matisyahu is not just releasing this as a single. This song is very very popular and is in no way new–I would have thought Perez would have either done his research or have been more musically in touch. it IS true that the remix with Akon dropped in early January, but I think that the remix looses the original feel of the song. Im not sure I like the commercialization of this song, however–it is something with a really really deep meaning that i dont really think is "uplifting, commercial, or (should) have everyone singing along in their cars." Music IS for the people, but you have to GET it.



  64. 64

    Old news, Perez.



  65. 65

    what the fuck.
    this is oldddddd



  66. 66

    This is NOT a new song!!.. This song is over 6months old already, it came out right before summer started and it already is all over the radio, just not bullshit pop radio… Just because Akons on there suddenly u have an intrest in it? The origional was better cause Akons whack ass wasn't in there… And it sound ABSOLUTLY NOTHING like Alicia Keys!!!!



  67. 67

    Better than most of the crap you tend to go overboard for



  68. 68

    Matisyahu's AMAZING! yes, this song has been out for awhile, but still, glad to see it getting more recognition… If anything, it gives publicity to something that is worthwhile…. much like Michael Franti, he has an important message of love and peace… I hope and pray that people gain that out of this song. Thank you for giving it more publicity… I cannot argue with the message of peace love and equality being spread, no matter the means…. and no matter how late….



  69. 69

    Matisyahu I love, but Akon I can't stand.
    .
    I love how you think you've "discovered" new music, but this is an old song. It's like when you "discovered" MGMT, even though I'd had their album for a year before your magnificent discovery! Idiot.



  70. 70

    LOOOL this song is so old! If anything, No One resembles One Day.

    Re: KDIZZLL – people like you make world peace impossible..if you don't like the song that's one thing but hating on someone because they are jewish…grow up.



  72. 72

    Re: KDIZZLL – Well, I guess the neo-Nazi movement is alive and well on the Perez forums…



  73. 73

    da fuck perez? this song has been big for a ill minute!



  74. 74

    Love reggae and Matisyahu is amazing reggae singer, love his tunes.



  75. 75

    Ummmm..Been listening to that song since before its' offical release late spring/early summer of 2009.. Stop staring at guys asses and get with it already….



  76. 76

    Re: KDIZZLL – Reggae music is not jew music, get a life idiot



  77. 77

    The Hassidic(sp) dread. He's sounding more like Bob Marley. Nice little ditty. Bet anything he grew up in Crown Heights, even though I heard he's from New Jersey. Well done!



  78. 78

    I've been listening to this album for months! It's my fav! I saw him play here in Calgary in October…amazing! He has been my favourite for years now. I hope he doesn't get to big.



  79. 79

    It's got a nice little bump to it and I love Matisyahu anyway so two thumbs up on this one!



  80. 80

    This is sooo much better without Akon! My 8 year old son knows all the words to this song :)



  81. 81

    Love it!

    Bravo Matisyahu!

  82. LeBon says – reply to this


    82

    It doesn't get cheesier than this. Terrible song.



  83. 83

    Enjoy the new one! I saw him in concert, Virgin Fest I think 2008, and he was one of the best performers I had ever seen, climbing all over the stage set up, it was great!!



  84. 84

    sounds like jay-z's forever one

    good song though



  85. 85

  86. 86

    this sux!!



  87. 87

    Perez. Maybe you should peel away from cutting and pasting from other gossip web-sites and turn on the radio. This song has been out for a while and it sucks!



  88. 88

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Matisyahu!

    And Perez… he came out with THIS song, WAY before Alicia Key's came out with hers!!! Are you trippin?!?!

    Mati came out with this album "The Light" back in May of '09 man. Check your facts!

    Preach on Matisyahu! It's time for the sons and daughters of Abraham to come together and unify! Let's unite the past with our future, and get back to basics!

  89. 89

    Perez, I am pretty sure this is already a hit. It has been out for awhile.



  90. 90

    sounds more like Wavin Flag



  91. 91

    This song has been out for a while now… however i think that this version is blegh… the one without Akon is MUCH MUCH better… why mess up a great thing?? And this song has way more meaning to it than Alicia Keys' 'No One' - i like her but this goes much more deep.. SO if u havent listened to it without AKon you should..;)



  92. 92

    This song is so old, Perez.



  93. 93

    This song is so old. Like always, too busy famewhoring and sucking up to Gaga to realize what's going on in the world.



  94. 94

    Good song.
    I heard it on Sirius radio months ago.



  95. 95

    one day….don't fight no more, no more wars. come on people, let's practice what we aim for… no more hate, even for perez :] im sure he's trying to tell you something!



  96. 96

    hey.. heads up.. i heard this song in JULY.. at rothbury.. somewhere you would never be seen at.. so get with your "latests" perez



  97. 97

    i heard this during the summer on nba 2k10.

    hes jewish?? i thought he was black



  98. 98

    The song featuring Akon is a mess ! I don't get why such a cooperation between the two of them !
    Akon is no singer, he uses a fake voice, saw him during a festival in october in Paris he doesn't even sings on stage all he was thinking about was taking his shirt off and jum in the crowd, USELESS !
    I really love what Matiyahu does, i mean his latest album is huge, but not with Akon!



  99. 99

    you cant tell a hit anymore. remember leona's last single.



  100. 100

    Where the F have you been? This song was released this summer. Pretty sure the whole album came out in August.
    He & this song are amazing. This song can really turn a bad day around.
