Boy is there a lot riding in this single. It marks the premiere of not one, but two high-profile new Sony imprints - Mariah Carey's Crave Records and hip-hop hit machine the Trackmasters' new eponymous label. That's a mighty heavy weight to lay upon the petite shoulders of this charming young female quartet. Fortunately, they are up to the challenge. They are as adept as swapping soulful lead vocal lines as they are at blending smooth harmonies, making the most of the song's playfully romantic lyrics and sleek infectious jeep groove. Hip-hop credibility comes via a guest appearance by Nas, though it if likely that most pop programmers will go directly to the rapfree mix, which lets the ladies cut loose without obstacles.

This is the very first site that I designed in Netscape Composer in 1996 in Geocities, which gave away free websites. My computer was so slow that it actually took me hours just to put three pages together of Mariah stuff. The Composer was free and most of this was hand written HTML. I didn't use tables back then (smile), I didn't even know what tables were. Thought it would be cool to look back.
