La Toya Jackson Teams Up With B. Howard & Maffio For “Let Me Know (Dimelo)”
La Toya Jackson has only released a handful of songs since the late ’90s, so any new release is a cause for celebration for the diva’s eternally-parched Toy Soldiers. She has been silent since 2014 (a particularly bountiful year that blessed us with “Feels Like Love” and flawless RuPaul duet “Feel Like Dancin'”), but the drought finally breaks with “Let Me Know (Dimelo).” A collaboration with family friend B. Howard and Dominican artist Maffio, Toy’s latest is a sultry Latin banger.
“I came here to party, tried to work your body, callin’ out them hotties,” Brandon begins the song. “You ain’t ever had it like this!” replies the thinking man’s Jackson, before declaring, “Come to the floor with me!” And then the 61-year-old, who is currently appearing on Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition, starts singing in Spanish. (Toy already mastered the language on 1990 cult classic “Do The Salsa”). Throw in a verse from Maffio and some horns and you’re left with something of a bop. Listen below.
