LOVERS part II feat. Wakadanna (Instrumental)
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.
