I Beg Your Pardon, But The Time For A Response Song To An Old Pop Chestnut Is Long Overdue
Come to think of it, the Plies/Ne-Yo song “Bust It Baby (Part 2)” samples Janet Jackson’s 1990 song “Come Back To Me”:
Even though my affection for Ne-Yo is well-documented around these parts, I’m looking for something a little… sassier, and more call-and-response (seriously, I thought the song was sampling an Anita Baker track for the first two months I knew about it). Like a remix of Kiss’ “Forever” in which the singer is getting irritable with Paul Stanley’s mealy-mouthed proclamations of fidelity. Or an answer song to the Glenn Medeiros/Bobby Brown duet “She Ain’t Worth It”:
Yes. Yes. Someone has to make my day and jump on “I’m Worth It ’08” before it’s time to turn the pop-song calendar year to 2009. Just don’t let Bobby know, otherwise he might try to horn in on the recording sessions.
