I tend to run hot and cold on Brit soul phenom Jamie Lidell, but I’ll admit to enjoying his album Jim, and being more curious than ever as to what he has up his sleeve.
As it turns out, Jamie has a new album scheduled for release in less than three weeks. It’s a self-titled affair, and the first single is called “You Naked.” It’s a funky little jam, perfect for getting your ass in gear either at a club (with a really good DJ) or when you’re trying to get out of bed in the morning. The visuals don’t add a whole lot–for some reason I have flashbacks to George Michael’s “Fastlove” video when I watch. Also, ain’t no nudity in the video. The song is CALLED “You Naked.” I call shenanigans.
Still…song is pretty dope. Jamie, consider a copy of your new album bought by yours truly. Good job.
