Um… OKAY?!?! This is the best song she’s released in years. Easily her best since “We Belong Together.” It’s an old school R&B jam like something she might have recorded in the early 90s, and you know that’s a compliment, y’all. I love the sexy groove. I love the gospel back-up singers. And most importantly, I love her voice, which sounds rejuvenated. After her disappointing invisibility on her last single, it’s great to have her hollering at the front of the pack again.
Now, I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Mariah’s had this song laying around for a few years. It’s not specifically about Obama. She doesn’t shout out Malia or anything. But even if I’m right, who cares? Any excuse to get a sweet hit from MC is an excuse worth making.
