Gooped for her to get a chance to do that duet at such a massive event, I know it was a dream come true for Beb.
Believe becoming a staple of hers is not something I hate at all. Her version is so transcendent.
I'm really happy to read this mini thinkpiece on the title track because I feel it's easily dismissed (as I did at first) as kind of an extended intro or mood-setter, and hasn't really been discussed much.However, I'm here to gush over the title track for a bit. It's so fucking amazing. I didn't expect to be gobsmacked like that. It reminds me of "Running Away" by Roy Ayers Ubiquity, as well as some fun sprinkles of Sheila E., Control-era Janet, and Rick James. I love the catchy, call-and-response-esque nature of the hook. Like on the last album, this album is so excellent at drawing from these specific inspirations without sounding pastiche. She sounds like a scholar of '70s/'80s funk on this one.
I'm sorry but the whole "I dont know that much techno. Maybe I should go clubbing with my brother." when speaking about *wanting* to do a record partly inspired by techno next reads like a very bizzare flex to me nn. Anyway I expect something like "Overtime" as her idea of that and I'm definitely more than fine with that!View attachment 46043
