No offense to Mr. Harris, of course, but Mariah Carey’s “I’ll Be Lovin’ U Long Time” was pretty OK for summertime consumption the way it was, and this version–which is going to be the official single release, according to word on the e-street–seems somewhat superfluous. Surely there was a song that actually needed some assistance out there that could be transformed into “I’m Real ’08” by a few throwaway “heys” in the background and a couple of tossed-off verses?
