Four BIG Stars!! Amerie and Eve in a great Remix performance! Eve is driving, rapping hard and clean, getting two rap bites out of this delicious musical apple. Amerie comes out smoking, rocking with her beautiful upper register, in solo and a hip riffing background. I love the way she sings and she is a stunning looker!
The use of a real drummer dealing from the Tony Williams-school of hard rock drumming is great and he keeps the heat on, as he verbally shouts encouragement. Amerie responds great to his fiery drumming. Using only a guitar, bass, and drum trio for background support leaves her vocals totally exposed and she carries it off well! She is consistently on the mark since the singular success of the hit "Why Don't We Fall In Love" (still the only music video that I have ever purchased individually). This single, based on the version from the "Touch" CD, has been re-mixed over and over, demonstrating it's danceable popularity. ( I recently ran across an Australian re-mix of "1 Thing" and it's hot too!) Four BIG DANCEABLE Stars!
