Another day, another single down... ...and this time it's yet another one of @Remorque's 7s. 49. Sugar Daddy Average: 7.3125 Highest score: 10 x 1 (@Daniel_O) Lowest score: 3 x 1 (@Petty Mayonnaise) My score: 8 Squeaking past Thank You by the slimmest of margins is our lowest-rated Macy Gray song, which was released in June 2018 and served as the second single from her tenth studio album, Ruby. Without @Petty Mayonnaise to tank it, this would have landed at #41, but here we are. (If one person had given this half a point less it would have tied with Thank You. Our #1 and #2 songs in the rate are separated by an identical margin.) @Daniel_O becomes only the sixth voter so far to lose a 10+ score (and only the fifth to lose a 10, as @ohnostalgia hasn't actually lost a 10 yet despite the elimination of her 11). The lyrics are deliberately ambiguous and don't get much deeper than "be my, be my sugar daddy and provide me with your candy", but I guess that's to be expected when one of your co-writers is Meghan "I'm bringing booty back" Trainor. (On the plus side, the Motown influence works well with Macy's raspy tones.) At the time Macy told Rolling Stone "I love this song, I loved making it. I believe it’s going to be the song of the summer." Far more interesting is the video, which features Macy attempting to sing album track Tell Me at a nightclub and getting heckled, before launching into Sugar Daddy and getting the crowd bopping. The video is a tribute to the 1972 Billie Holiday biopic Lady Sings The Blues, which starred Diana Ross. Ross's son Evan Ross appears in the video, as does ex-Pussycat Doll Carmit Bachar. Sugar Daddy could have been the third single from the album if Macy had chosen to include Stop, Drop, Roll on Ruby. That song features bassist Nik West and was released as a standalone single back in June 2017, complete with an eye-catching video that featured a plus-sized dancer performing in front of the American flag just ahead of the July 4th festivities: At the time Macy said, “This is just a fun video for the fans, I have a ton of new music coming soon, just wanted to send a message, that I think is very much needed right now, about freedom. Accepting who you are, and being you, is the most important thing. As long as your not hurting anybody then you’re alright. No matter what people say.” But back to Sugar Daddy. What did you all think? @abael (5) doesn't appear to like anything about the song: "Macy's voice doesn't suit this song at all, and the basic producing isn't saving this." @Trouble in Paradise (8) surprised himself: "I never NEVER would have imagined that I would enjoy a Macy Gray song called “Sugar Daddy” as much as I do." @Music Is Life (8.5) probably thinks the song should have ended a lot earlier: "0Ooo that intro! Love it! The rest of the song is good. The little interludes are cute. It’s a bit of a bop but nothing really special. The bridge made this a little bit better cause handclaps, but they didn’t really do anything with it." Finally, @Daniel_O (10) will regret this going quite so soon: "Another big contender for my 11. This is the first Macy album I listened to, and It's really solid! Some great tracks. Sugar Daddy is super fun."
