i’m not gonna lie, this song is super catchy and the video is beautiful. i will probably put it on a mix cd. in my mind, this is kelis’ millenium version of “i will survive”. when i first heard that kelis was transitioning into dance/pop music, i was jazzed. i love club bangers. but can you throw some glitter on a hood rat and call her a diva? i haven’t really figured that out yet. the twink inside of me wants to say yes and while the effort is appreciated, i have to wonder….will i ever see kelis flipping tables with kool-aid dyed streaks again? that’s the bitch i know and i love. doesn’t she remember when cher did this in 1998? (believe, pre t-pain auto-tune) or madonna in 2008 (hard candy)? they both hit a huge jackpot with their club/dance shift but have they done anything else since? …..no. when your songs can be remixed a million different ways, i’d find it hard to try and come out with something better. is kelis ready for discotheque lockdown?
