This is NOT worthy of Lasers. I think everybody who likes this song is either a fan of the mainstream, is not a 'TRUE' Lupe fan, or they have been waiting for a single for so long that they're just happy to have something new. Maybe a combination of all of those reasons. I, however, hate the mainstream, I have been a fan of Lupe since the 1st/15th mixtapes, and I am not just happy to have a new single. I was blown away by 'Shining Down' and 'I'm Beamin', but 'The Show Goes On' doesn't even come close to impressing me. I'm just a fan with constructive criticism, and I know that this is nothing close to Lupe's album potential. This song is not worth putting on a real Lupe Fiasco album, let alone being a single. It's probably only good enough to be on 'Friend of the People', if that were ever released. Lupe, you can do much, much better than this, and you know it. I hope this is only a hiccup, because I don't want to be disappointed; especially since we've all been waiting for 2 and a half years for this album. You're better than this single.

Personally, I think Lu killed it on this track. I think the people saying they'd be "disappointed" in LASERS if it's like this song are paying too much attention to the beat of the song. Lu is still Lu with his lyrics, he's preaching the whole idea of the LASERS Manifesto in the song. Again...I love the song, Lu killed it, and is it March 8th yet?

For some, the beat might sound mainstream, but lyrically its still Lupe, Let the show go on

Possible sample of Modest Mouse's Float On, am I the only one to note the similarities? However on that note love Modest Mouse, love Lupe, love life.

Atlantic won't release Lasers w/out a hit single. Lupe is friend of the people. You know the album won't sound like NOW 40 or sum shit C'mon Son!*Ed Lover Voice*

I love Lupe to death, but if this song is any indication of how his album is going to turn out I'll be disappointed. Lupe represents a lot more than all this mainstream crap on the radio, and for his song to sound like he was going for a top 40 hit is disappointing. Rap and pop's greatest enemy is autotune, I hate to see Lupe fall to it.
