Eve feat. Alicia Keys – “Gangsta Lovin'” 2002
One of my favorites.
It was a time where Eve was giving herself a new look and a time where a girl name Alicia Keys burst upon the scene.
This was a good collaboration. Well, any collaboration with Keys singing the hook, is gonna be better than good. Keys is — in my estimation — one of the greatest female vocals we’ve ever heard and one of the top-four greatest female vocals in the past ten years.
To me, the top female singers under 40-years of age, are: Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Adele and Keys.
Eve is a solid rapper. She had a good sound to her lyrics, has a lot of attitude and didn’t half-ass her music. She was smooth.
So…this is my TBT music video of the day…
