I did. Guess who I sawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! No, not Fu-leh-vuh N'Abania. But close enough! D'Banj :D. He performed at a corporate event on Friday night. Tiwa Savage performed too, but Cakes and I were late due to the maddening (or as Cakes calls it, demonic) traffic, so we caught D'Banj only. I have a short clip of his performance on Instagram. All I can say is, "His Waist!!!"
Anyways, the title of my post is incorrect. The real title is What I'm Obsessed With - Always.
Over the weekend, Cakes and I saw The Bestman Holiday. Personally, I prefer the first film and I don't see what was so awesomely great about this one. Maybe my expectations were too high? Anyways, I was pleasantly surprised to hear one of my favorite songs in the film, during a significant scene. Stevie Wonder's original version was used in The Bestman, and for this new film, the song was remade by Anthony Hamilton and Marsha Ambrosius. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this new version. So much so that I slept at 2:30am last night, replaying the song and I've listened to it 20 times this morning (it's only 10am, so do the math).
Without further ado, let's all listen to Always (or As, depending on which Youtube video you're watching).
- STEVIE WONDER - AS
Mr. Stevie Wonder, you are a master genius for writing this song!
- ANTHONY HAMILTON & MARSHA AMBROSIUS - ALWAYS
By the way, I think Marsha is underrated and should be much bigger than she is!!! Her voice is ah-MAH-zing!
Oh, and if your body starts to tingle from this version, I was not there by that time o! Drink cold water or jump into the nearest freezer.
Alrighty, I gotta go find go take an ice bath...
Toodles, pretty poodles, and stir-fried noodles!
