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.)
When this came out, I had the biggest crush on Usher, or as we said down in South Carolina, Ursha. I just knew I could join his fan club and profess my love sincerely and it would be enough to turn him gay and be my boo.
Then he grew up, cheated on Chilli, made a kajillion dollars singing about it, and is forever ugly to me. Some people grow into their features, but Ursha grew out of his. He always looks like a cross between a turtle and a penishead.
So I’ll just pretend I’m ten again and watch this, back when he was cute.
I like this song better than any ballad Beyonce has ever done, probably because LeToya doesn’t holler at me like I just crushed all her begonia bushes. Plus she’s adorable. And she seems more authentically hood. And Luda’s bars are kind of amazing.
