If you like Blackstreet, then you just might love the iTunes free single of the week.
Raheem DeVaughn's "Woman" is no worse than most of the songs topping the iTunes top song list, but that's not saying much.
It doesn't help the songs' credibility too much that it begins with a dedication to women including "your baby's mama's mama." Hello stereotypes.
"Woman" has a groovy beat and a catchy piano part that is very reminiscent of 90s R&B. Musically, the verses are strong even though the lyrical content is about as lame as it comes. The guy seems to appreciate the women in his life, but come up with a more creative/sincere way to express it than "I appreciate your glow, and when you get angry with us, the way that you let us know, and I think you're so cute when you get so emotional."
The chorus is truly awful though. It just repeats "woman, woman, woman, woman" over and over again.
I have to say nay to Raheem DeVaughn's "Woman."
[UPDATE: As it turns out, this song is nominated for a Grammy for "Best Male R&B Vocal Performance." Yikes. If they're only judging on vocal performance, okay, but the fact that this song is nominated proves once again how meaningless the Grammys have become.]
