The Flopstars turned ultimate popstars have really got a chart topper here! Liberty X have had a unique journey into the musical arena and are clearly here to stay. This track was originally released by late 70s early 80s songstress Chaka-Khan. And clearly, the Liberty X gang have the vocals that truely give the song justice. Yes, it is THAT good. But just to add pleasure to an alrerady fantastic track, Liberty X joined forces with Richard X, the same man who aided by creating the music for the Sugababes two #1 tracks Freak Like me and Round Round. The music is completed with a pulsating bass line, reving and bleeping noises that give off the edgy modern R'N'B scene of today and vocals that truely rock.This colaborative single is nothing short of memorable hit material. Anyone who buys this will NOT be disapointed with their purchase and will put this amazing track at the top of their party list. So don't delay; but it now and send it to number one chart sucess, where it truely belongs!

This is Liberty X's 6th single, a collaboration with producer Richard X. Its the 1st release of their highly anticipated second album. Just to start off, if this is what the rest of the album will sound like..then its gonna be great! Being Nobody is a bootleg, sampling the music of Human League's 'Being Boiled' and the acapella of Chaka Kahn's 'Ain't Nobody'. Obviously you're gonna get the usual critics complaining that its yet another cover and they shouldnt ruin a classic! But that definitely isn't the case here. The bootleg works great and it sounds like a completely different song! If anything better than the original! This has to go to number 1! Truely the best song of 2003 so far! Well done Liberty X!

Richard X Made 2 Fatal Errors
The first error was re-using Being Boiled, when he'd already used it on Being Scrubbed.
The second error was making a track that appears to be exactly the same as Ain't Nobody by Chaka Khan. The whole point of mixing 2 records together in a bootleg is to make something that sounds new. It's also against the rules to include musical elements from *both* records (the synth accompaniment from Ain't Nobody, obviously played by Richard on a keyboard rather than sampled from the original.
Having said that, it's a nicely produced track. This production doesn't stop it getting boring quickly, but enjoy it while you can. I hope it goes number one!

A brilliant song done in a brilliant Way. This song is a collabiration with Richard X and it combines to be a brilliant single. There is brilliant singing by the Liberty X clan and the Music is fantastic. The words and music gel perfectly which may be surprising as it is a Mixture of "Being Boiled" and "Ain't Nobody" yet you cannot tell that they wern't written for each other thamks to the brilliant powers of Richard X.
All parts make you wan't to sing and dance along.
Abrilliant record that you should go out and Buy NOW!
