Nicole Bus: You

Remarks:

This song is currently #24 on the US R&B chart. It is my favourite song of 2019 – as of February! It sounds for all the world like some other song I have heard before, but I cannot put my finger on it. Which might be the point: as it turns out, it is a remake of a song produced by Isaac Hayes in the 1960s (“As Long As I’ve Got You” (1967) by the Charmels), set to a hip-hop beat from the 1990s (“C.R.E.A.M.” (1994) by the Wu-Tang Clan), and produced in the 2010s (by Needlz).

Nicole Bus is herself a mix of White Holland and Black Curacao.

That man is fine, many find yeah
So fine that’s why he’s mine yeah

Flyin’ around in the blue
As long as… baby
