Beenie Man feat. Janet Jackson
Released: 16th September 2002.
What we have here is a great track. An all round top song with great vocals, a great tune, a rhythmic beat and an amazingly hot video. Janet has a brilliant voice and she only proves it further with this song. It's all been put together well and it deserves to be a big hit - hopefully it will make the Top 3.
Following collaborations with Mya and Jamelia, the reggae MC teams up with one of the world's best singers for a simple, Neptune's produced jam. All three involved parties contribute the sounds and styles that work best for them, and it makes for a pretty good combination. Unfortunately the song doesn't seem to go very far, and Beenie seems to be an acquired taste I have yet to develop. Would work well as background music on a warm summer evening, but instead will regrettably remind us of the current lack of sunshine!
