Eric Benet and 2 Chainz Have ‘News for You’
For the track — about giving his best to a woman who’s always been disappointed in love — Benet uses smooth operator lyrics to seduce, singing, “Your body is glistening all over with satisfaction / I showed you pleasures you thought you’d never feel.” But he would much rather put in overtime than clock out when his shift is through. “When you think I’m done, that’s when I’ve just begun,” he continues in a higher tone.
For the breakdown of the song, 2 Chainz rides over the beat, spitting his own game. “Ain’t no compressor, four doors or more / Yours truly got your girl on all fours.”
The remix is slightly more upbeat than the original, which is from his 2012 album, ‘The One’. This effort has what seems to be a sample of Lenny Kravitz’s ‘It Ain’t Over ’til It’s Over’ and Frankie Beverly and Maze’s ‘Happy Feelings.’ We don’t think the collaboration was too much of a surprise as Benet collaborated with Lil Wayne on ‘Red Bone Girl,’ a track also on the singer’s latest album.
