The lateral move to a pop-ish, radio-friendly song is tricky. Even if you’re just dipping your toes in it to fulfill some album checklist, it can sound really weird if you don’t know what you’re doing. Does Joey Bada$$ have it all down on “Devastated?” I’d say so. It’s at least competent, although missing that x-factor that makes these songs infectious and pervasive. Still, I have a hard time knocking versatility.
