Yesterday was Miss Patti Patti’s birthday so I had to find a jam to celebrate. Obviously she had a lot of hits before this one, but I think when this song came out I was old enough to know it was out and who it was by. Basically, I just remember being in the car on the way home from the bowling alley when it would come on and my parents would turn up the radio. Every single time. Because everybody loves Miss Patti Patti. And she did her good singing on this song too.
(and she still has the best black person nosejob in all of the entertainment industry)
The lead singer should become a star if they go solo, right? Diana Ross…Justin Timberlake…Patti LaBelle…Beyonce…so why didn’t it work for T-Boz?
Because she was making music like this. I’m not saying you can’t make a hit singing about masturbation (::ahem:: Tweet’s one song) but this song is kinda awful. I love that it exists though! The whole thing just makes me go “ooo this is bad and ridiculous…I’m mad everybody involved thought this was poppin.”
Brandy…boo…I love you. You are one of my favorite R&B songstresses of all time. The craftmanship that goes into your records is unparalleled in music right now. You have the best background vocals in your catalog of any R&B singer making records.
But this is straight boo boo. I am so mad with you for this.
So, how bout I didn’t even know this song existed? My only knowledge of The Good Girls is "Your Sweetness" which is really their only hit. This song is sooooo silky smooth though! This is like if Sade was a girl group who had a New Jack Swing producer. I’m in this phase right now where I really like seductive basslines on repeat and this totally fits the bill.
This is why the Internet is amazing. I would’ve gone my whole life without knowing about this and that would be a shame.
Holy. Shit. I mean, the video is cheap and the song took a few days to grow on me, but Dawn is DANCING in this. I am not even kidding. My own pelvis is sore after watching all this gyration.
You need to get this EP. Straight up, BEST R&B album I have bought all year, especially if you like R&B and dance music. Not techno bullshit either—actual “make your body move” dance music. This is the worst song on the whole album, forreal. This shit is so flawless.
Ok I need to end this post because I am stanning so hard right now. But damn Dawn. She is putting in some serious work…(while Aubrey is off crying on the Celebrity Apprentice, wearing one of Rihanna's old Kool-Aid-Red-Wigs.)
