Last time we heard from Richgirl, the stylish R&B quartet created by producer Rich Harrison, they were performing vocal acrobatics the thunderous beat of “He Ain’t Wit Me Now (Tho)” — but still had no album release in sight. But now it appears the ladies are finally ready to strut their stuff: check the just-released “Swagger Right”, featuring Fabolous and Rick Ross, a slinky new joint that may finally help Richgirls measure up to the hype. Who else hears early Destiny’s Child? Yes, we said it.
Harrison is known for tracks that blaze with horns and percussion (see Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love”, Amerie’s “1 Thing”), but here he creates an easy-going groove that lets the ladies shine.[wpaudio url="http://idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/rich-girl-swagger.mp3" text="Richgirl f/ Fabolous and Rick Ross - Swagger Right" dl="0"]
Fabolous sounds typically smooth on his verse: I could help get your swag elevated / My look is copywritten / You tell I made it.
But the song begs the question: HOW, exactly does one get their swagger right? We’re thinking you have to do more than hire a swagger coach.
