1. LOVERS part II feat. Wakadanna

So I guess this is the sequel of the first “LOVERS”…even though I’m not sure who did the original?  LOVERS II is a really mushy ballad from Miliyah and features your normal ballad instruments like strings and piano.  At least it changes after a while by getting a little more upbeat as an R&B track.  As for Wakadanna, he should’ve stayed off the track because his gritty rap lines really don’t fit this sweet lullaby tone of the track.  It’s a nice track, but Wakadanna kind of ruins it for me.

2. Mukuchi no Uta

The B-side also carries that lullaby quality to a further level which is something I wouldn’t expect Miliyah to pull.  Mukuchi no Uta is luckily a Wakadanna-less track and it’s nice to hear something so bare-boned like this.  The only instrument is really acoustic guitar and some background sparkles and such.  At the halfway point, a beat is added but doesn’t take away the mood of the song which I really liked.  Good track.

3. LALALA feat. Wakadanna T.O.M. Remix

So we get one of Miliyah’s older A-sides and has gotten a remix here.  Seeing that Wakadanna was involved worried me quite a bit lol.  From the beats of the song, I was expecting some hip-hop here because it has this 90’s flavor to it.  Basically it reminds me of a Mary J. Blige track.  Miliyah sounds good though once again, could’ve lived without Wakadanna…he just irks me SOOOOO badly in this track.

 

 

After “HEART BEAT”, I was kind of wondering what would’ve been next (I was seriously hoping for an album…seriously Miliyah? another single?).  LOVERS part II isn’t a bad single…not as good as her last, but this actually worked…BUUUUUUUUUT…Wakadanna had to come and basically ruin 2/3 of the single.  I mean his rapping is nonsensical and just hoarse and annoying as hell…if he wasn’t there, I would say this would’ve been my favorite but as it stands, not bad, but not amazing.
