Let it be known that Timo Maas isn’t our usual type of hype, but we gave his new album Pictures a chance because of these words: “featuring Neneh Cherry.” (We guess MIA’s “Buffalo Stance”-referencing video for “Galang” didn’t just motivate some of our favorite mixtapers to reexamine her work.) Cherry appears on “High Drama”, but truthfully her vocal turn is more in the ethereal, soulful electronica diva style than the faux tough talking British b-girl return we were hoping for. Turns out it’s Kelis who ends up doing a little snapping and rapping for Maas on “4 Ur Ears”, a song notable for her multiple orgasm (word usage).
What Is She Like Anyway?
