Sexy neo soul and slow electronic R&B are so hot right now (for reference, think anything you’d hear from Solange’s record label, Saint Records, or the minimal-beats output of AlunaGeorge).
Jordin Sparks of American Idol and R&B pop fame has decided to get hot. Damn hot.
Production responsibilities fell on the shoulders of Salaam Remi for this one. Oh he’s only the guy who produced Fugees’s “Fu-Gee-La“, Amy Winehouse’s “Tears Dry on Their Own“, Mis-Teeq’s “Can’t Get It Back” (YES. MIS-TEEQ. I WENT THERE. YOU’RE WELCOME.), Jazmine Sullivan’s “Bust Your Windows“, Alicia Keys’s bleedin’ “Girl on Fire” and Miguel’s “How Many Drinks?“. So, yes. Quite the CV.
Jordin co-wrote this little didy with Elijah Blake. He also wrote this little banger of a tune. Well done lad.
Well done all the lads. All the lads and ladies. All the lads and ladies that made this happen.
Just when you thought Janelle Monáe’s PrimeTime couldn’t get any sexier, she’s gone and made this absolute baby-maker of a video that stays on the classy side of sexy (take note Miley…). How often can you say that about a video set in a strip club? Not very often, reader. Not very often at all.
Be sure to give her album The Electric Lady a listen. It’s kind of a given that it’s amazing given that it features collaborations with Prince, Erykah Badu and, of course, Miguel.
