Will Smith's comeback single "Switch" was a surprisingly huge hit earlier this year, and this follow up could turn out to be almost as big. "Party Starter" is similar in style but raises the tempo a notch, and is somewhat better for it, although the looped sample used throughout can be a little annoying at first. However, it does have one major flaw - it sounds as if the family-friendly rapper is trying too hard to sound cool. OK, so he might not actually be the coolest guy in hip-hop anymore, but the track is nevertheless unashamedly catchy. Just don't take it too seriously.
