Metro Detroit native Mike Posner turns 28 today

Take a moment to consider Mike Posner. He turns 28 today, and he's scrambling to be one of the top crooners to that generation that's stuck "up in the club" chasing that one elusive perfect night before facing a lifetime of debt service in the feudal corporate state.

But, hey, he's from Southfield. So when you're listening to the boy-voiced vocalist head-bob his way through "I Took a Pill in Ibiza" or "Cooler than Me," you can do it with a little bit of hometown pride.



As for naming a song "Beneath Your Beautiful" just to tease those who love good grammar, that's where he loses marks with us. Grow up, chump. And happy birthday.
