Emanny - Would You Mind 2013
Part of Janet Jackson‘s 2001 All for You LP, Would You Mind has aged pretty damn well over the last decade and change. With its minimal beat and risqué lyrical theme, it wouldn’t sound entirely out of place coming from one of today’s more adventurous crooners. Nonetheless, Emanny has given the bedroom-ready cut a 2013 makeover on the latest song release off his forthcoming mixtape. The most noticeable changes are on the production tip; with the help of co-producers Kdotonthebeat and Mike Glover, the unsigned singer, songwriter and producer crafts a keyboard-driven instrumental with a more lush, atmospheric feel than the original’s stripped-down backdrop. In addition, Emanny subtly revises the lyrics to read as a response to Janet’s lines. Time to weigh in, readers: is this a worthy update of the classic cut? If you think so, you’re sure to appreciate the rest of the fresh material in store on Emanny’s Songs About H.E.R. 2 street album.
