This is good, but not as good as I thought it was going to be or should be. Was surprised it only made #9 or something too which I think is testamanent to it just not being the track it SHOULD be for them both
Most of the high profile duets that were released during these years were a bit underwhelming considering how they could have been instead, but I think this one is one of the best and as mentioned elevated the already good original version.
Least we forget, MJB's label wouldn't allow her on George's As for the American release of Ladies & Gentlemen, so there was a lot to boost this duet's charge. Musically on it's own it has plenty of oomph as it is. I mean, it bulldozed over the Enrique duet.
Legends only. Although Ms. George correctly was deferential to The Voice, who delivered all the stand-out moments. And who can forget that it's-so-2000-it-hurts video, where Whitney seems to get progressively more off-her-tits as the whole thing progresses. And who can blame her. Queens!
He definitely reigned it in for this one and let Whitney own the moment on her song, which is interesting because he certainly didn’t reign it in with Miss Aretha. He actually gets all the best ad-libs on that. She’d never let PATTI get away with that!
