Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz feat. Usher & Ludacris
Released: 2nd May 2005.
Hip-hop fans are in for a treat this week as Southern yelpers Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz release the single of their career. "Lovers & Friends", featuring megastars Ludacris and Usher, is an oh-so-smooth hip-hop ballad with fine vocal performances from the boyz, and an addictive mellow piano beat - the second huge urban slowie of 2005. "Get Low", in a complete change of pace, is an equally enjoyable, straight up-and-down party anthem. Featuring Busta Rhymes, Elephant Man and the Ying Yang Twins, this stomper, with its infectious call-out hook, is hip-hop party perfection. These two tracks stand out alone, but together, this is the single best hip-hop buy of the year.
