25 Songs That Should Have Blown Up in 2012

WZRD "Teleport 2 Me, Jamie"



Artists who get their start in rap are often criticized for making the jump to another genre, and Kid Cudi was no stranger to this when he began making psychedelic rock as WZRD. But the experimental side project with Dot Da Genius yielded some fantastic results, one of the being long-distance love anthem, "Teleport 2 Me, Jamie." The song is built on a sample of Desire's "Under Your Spell," which was popularized by Ryan Gosling action thriller, Drive. Cudi recaptured the heartbreak-meets-infatuation appeal of the original record to great effect, but the indie origins of the production likely kept it rooted in a mood to esoteric for the general population to latch onto.
