Amerie — 1 Thing
Or: "My God I Can't Believe It's Not Crazy In Love!
" But this is better. No Jay-Z to fall back on here, no trumpets to cover up the gaps, just that relentless off-kilter drum sample, each time going deeper and deeper into your head until it's the first thing that you hear when you wake up in the morning. It needs something more than Beyoncé, who's too busy making sandwiches for her man. No, this song needs Amerie, in her clicking high heels and the glorious sound of her "bing-bong-bing-bongs"
. A song for crowded dancefloors, for heat, indeed, for Hell
