I think, after Without You, it was a formula that worked and she stuck to it.It was mentioned somewhere recently that all of her cover versions are MOR blandy songs by men - and it's true!
For someone who LIVED AND BREATHED HIP HOP while growing up, she loves a good Mumballad
SUCH a great song. One of my favourite DEEP CUTSMiss You Feat. Jadakiss
Why was this not on the album properly? Why was it not a single? How is it not head and shoulders above Boy (I Need You) and The One?? Relegated to bonus track status in the UK and Japan, and then buried on the (brilliant) Remixes album, this JD track features some of her best vocals from that era, a strong melody, a killer beat, a tight song structure and a nice, brief rap section from Jadakiss. I also love the lyrics and was desperate to break up with someone so I could feel my oats to it (which I did). An overlooked gem.
Not featured. Sorry bout it.I know we haven't got to it yet, but I just had a moment to Looking In.
Well here I am
For all of them bleed
But they can't take my heart from me
And they can't bring me to my knees
They'll never know the real me...
To end a blockbuster, pre-divorce, pre-liberation album with that was... wig
