This month’s ‘ten years ago’ throwback track, and yes I’m really late on it. I can’t even properly classify this as a throwback, to be honest, because it’s not like I haven’t heard this in a while – lots of Aaliyah stays in rotation. I do remember mornings at school when people would be bumping this from their rides before first period started though. ‘Try Again’ was on the charts for 27 weeks, and peaked at #4. Nice. My criteria for throwback is that I gotta know this song, which ruled out this Tamar Braxton song I found out while researching – I’ve never heard it before. Hell, I didn’t even know she existed. I like it!
+ Super early on this: I’ll be doing a mini twenty minute set for my buddy Snacks for the five year anniversary of his weekly radio podcast. Hint 1: it won’t be any r&b. Hint 2: it will be all 2 live crew. This got me thinking: five year anniversary, huh. June 14th would be the anniversary of my first wordpress post, the post with the now classic amerie remix (rest in peace Jun Seba), and that was also five years ago. Should I do anything fancy? Goodness, how time flies. (also a ‘we’re fucking old’ for good measure)
+ I am GIVING AWAY SOME STICKERZZZ so gimme an address and I will send you some.
