The only thing I’m thinking about, and thinking hard at that, is if I can get with this song.
Now, I’m going to backpedal and give J. Hud credit for her last self-titled album. In hindsight, that album grew on me majorly once I adjusted to the fact that Jennifer is just a belter. Period. She will never really NOT be a belter. The songs grew, the production made headway into my heart, and “No One Gonna Love You” become my repeated jam on many occasions. Despite the bad grammar in many of the songs and titles, I ended up enjoying 3/4′s of that album.
“Think Like A Man” suffers one minor pitfall — Ne-Yo. Why & how Ne-Yo weasels his way onto duets with all these great singers (relative to him, of course) baffles me. But this song is just fluffy and asinine enough to not even really matter. The movie that it is taken from is seemingly trying to bring the blockbuster soundtrack back like in the 90′s. Rick Ross is always meh to me. Unneeded and clearly there for perceived appeal. Give me a version without him and without Ne-Yo, and I’m good I think. Kevin Hart’s comedic appeal is always fine with me at this point as well.
So — Who’s going to see the movie? Who likes this song? Who cannot stand Steve Harvey? Just wondering. Spill it!
