We had Toni Braxton's 'Get Loose' as our Song Of The Day yesterday and because we know the idea of a new Toni Braxton single is not exactly everybody's idea of an exciting start to 2009, we're writing about it here again today to make sure you give it a listen.
Points of note:
» It's a Darkchild production.
» It sounds like an R&B 'With Every Heartbeat' (sort of) (not at all).
» T‑Br has recently been in 'Dancing With The Stars' in America, which means that the "dancing shoes" references in 'Get Loose' are a bit like the rug-cutting imagery in Alesha Dixon's 'The Boy Does Nothing'. It is all very clever. ('Clever' = 'staggeringly obvious and bordering on patronising but you've got to do what you've got to do in this climate etc'.)
» The "get your back up off the wall" business is v good indeed.
» The rest of the album will probably be shit but one decent song per album is sort of par for the course with The Braxto, isn't it.
» 'And them's the brax'.
» Oh dear.
