It's been a very long time since I've done musical theory but I know this rhythm is quite common, especially in dance and even some punk/metal.
So, some songs have 4 beats to a bar but it has 2 triplets and 1 double.
In total, it consists of 8 notes however there are 3 accented notes. Like this:
1 2 3, 1 2 3, 1 2
It's not 4/4 (although you can count 4 beats) and it's not 6/8. (2 triplets to a bar).
Is it 8/8? What's the time signature?
