The Nightingale

The small hours still belong to Sanchez

A handful of socially conscious cuts follow, all of which sport important sentiments and catchy hooks. With the exception of the crisp sing-along "World Peace," however, none add much to the preachy "reality song" genre. Far more interesting is "Ghetto Fabulous," a wonderful word-for-word interpretation of Jaheim's "Fabulous," right down to the spelled-out ending: "Never G-I-V-E U-P, keep your H-E-A-D U-P." It's a tune with a hip-hop edge that emphasizes Sanchez's ongoing relevance.

In other words, it's the perfect joint to lace a party with at 2:00 a.m. In the irresistible chorus, Sanchez seems to be schooling everyone who ever wrote off, or never understood, the necessity of lover's rock: "Don't hate on us/We're fabulous."
