I grew up to the beat of electronic drums
Aww, phooey. The intro is reminiscent of the best Reg Guest/Wally Stott orchestral arrangement, then it breaks into something totally derivative and ordinary, vaguely recalling Britney. I would never have known this was Sade. I don't like to rely on past triumphs to gauge an artist's new work... but bring back Smooth Operator.
I was gonna say I really liked the intro, and then it went...nowhere. Almost like a remix played over her original vocal track.Something in Sade's vocals here remind me of Bjork...strange.
The Jay Z mix could grow on me, but I doubt this will. This leaves one more song we have not heard. So far, none of the new material is very good.
