Nicole Wray - If I Was Your Girlfriend (Promo CDS)



生動的
Hand Clap伴隨渾厚結實的Bass鼓點貫穿全程幾乎隱沒無具體的主旋律編制附貼在歌曲的底處,Nicole Wray入主Rock-A-Fella廠牌後於2004年末發表的首支單曲"If I Was Your Girlfriend",在當時帶著與Urban市場慣性截然不同的音色,在欠缺強而有力的宣傳中登入舞池贏得一片叫好,當眾人還在她與Missy Elliott師徒關係生變的話題打轉時,她的全新出擊再次豪奪我的所有注意力。

這是一首冰涼感四竄卻力道奔張的Funk,一首高度表現R&B音種經過多年停滯發展後的新質感,也是一首不可多得的Ear Candy。身為領導者及嘻哈商業巨擘的Jay-Z極有慧眼地將就要被遺忘的Nicole Wray從滿佈灰塵的唱片層架上移籍至自身麾下,改頭換面帶著好比更新版的Chaka Khan/Teena Marie女伶形體,不過多了幾分甜美注入龐大的節拍換算著她在Bridge部分時的耳語式吟唱,乘上中段由Peedi CrakkN.O.R.E.的串場,結果就是一首撩人火辣的絕妙靈騷。

化作假想樂團主唱角色的Nicole Wray,抹上閃亮斑斕的80用色現身於靈感源自於當時知名音樂卡通片" Jem and the Holograms"(珍與野貓合唱團)的音樂錄影帶,瞬間獲得熱烈迴響,即刻進入MTV節目Monster Mix的點播排行,無奈困頓於鬆散窘迫的宣傳,這首單曲僅僅於Club Scene匯集了些搔不到癢處的共鳴,而拿下Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Sales22位的慘澹銷售成績,也視為她與Jay-Z合作契約的句點。
