Whoa, have you heard Nicki Minaj's remix of "Hold You," the sexy hit single by smooth reggae dude Gyptian? If the answer is no, then you are way, way, way behind the game (and potentially celibate) 'cause this lusty little tag-team track totally dominated the Summer 2010 baby-making season.
Oozing equal amounts of rap raunch and reggae romance, this slow, sweaty jam has got a little bit of everything for everybody.
Do you dig dirty talk and crazy babble? Well, Ms. Minaj has got semi-sleazy stream-of-consciousness stuff for you, like, "Body smokin' cigarette ... Tell 'em to skeet." How about gentle erotic suggestions? Perfect 'cause Gyptian's already whispering in your ear.
Bottom line: This song is so sweet, sticky, and superpotent that sexual intercourse might not even be a factor and you'll still be asking yourself, Am I pregnant?
Gyptian with Jagged Edge and 112's Slim as part of the Florida Memorial University's Homecoming concert. Friday, February 11. The A. Chester Robinson Athletic Center, 15800 NW 42nd Ave., Miami Gardens. The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets cost $40. Call 305-626-3657 or visit fmuniv.edu.
