B.o.B: “That album is kind of like the song you’ve always heard, but don’t know why or where you’ve heard it. ‘1901’ was a song you’d hear in a store or a car commercial.
“My guitar player is really heavy into rock music, so I asked him whose song it was. When he found out for me, I went and bought the album. I like albums that have a sound to them, like all the songs were recorded at once. There’s a cohesive flow, all the way through.”
