Lil Jon ft. R. Kelly & Mario - Miss Chocolate
Remember Black Star’s uplifting “Black is beautiful” anthem, Brown Skin Lady? Lil Jon’s new single Miss Chocolate is nothing like that. Miss Chocolate’s strength is its production, a hypnotically head-nodding, club banging beat cooked up by Drumma Boy and Mr. Jon himself. For his part Lil Jon drops a not-exactly romantic verse – “…so round so thick / so nasty I love that sh*t” – along with, of course, his usual assortment of “Yeah!”s. (What? You were expecting something else?) Luckily, the King of Crunk isn’t handling vocal duties alone, wisely also bringing in R. Kelly, who delivers the kind of obscenely entertaining verse you’d hope for, and the supremely smooth Mario, whose hook and verse work somehow manage to push the song into musically respectable territory. Will Miss Chocolate be the lead single of Lil Jon’s long-awaited album Crunk Rock (due out in May)? That depends in part on how the masses respond, so have at it DJBooth nation. The future of Miss Chocolate is in your hands.
