Pass Or Play? “I Deserve It” Faith Evans ft. Missy Elliot and Sharaya J

June 25, 2014  |  

It’s not time to count Faith Evans out. The first lady of Bad Boy has teamed up with Missy Elliot again (Remember they did “Burnin’ Up?) to release a new single, they’ve proclaimed to be a summer jam. The track starts with a woman saying “Make it hot for the summer, make it hot.” It’s called “I Deserve It.”

Essentially, the song about Faith telling any prospective boos that like L’Oréal she’s worth it. The chorus goes.

Cuz a girl like me is worth it. 

Only want the best, cuz I deserve it

Just hold me down

You ain’t gotta be perfect

Cuz a girl like me is worth it.

And in addition to Faith’s vocals, which sound shockingly similar, if not identical, to how they sounded back in the ’90’s, rappers Sharaya J and Missy Elliot are also the track.

It’s jazzy but there are also elements of Hip Hop and old school R&B with some of the underlying production.

Take a listen to the song below and let us know what you think. Pass or Play?
