Diana’s Corner - Wyclef Jean – Baby



pentru www.muzicabuna.ro

M-am decis sa fac o noua rubrica, care se numeste “Diana’s Corner”, unde voi scrie numai despre piese, albume, artisti, miscari care mi se par formidabile, laudabile si demne de apreciat. Aceasta piesa este noua mea obsesie, as asculta-o zi si noapte! Sunt convinsa ca barbatii vor fi putin mai reticenti, insa cred ca nici ei nu ar inchide playlistul daca ar auzi “Baby”. Melodia face parte din albumul “The Preacher’s Son” si este mai mult o… “oda”, un cant, un imn al frumusetii iubirii adevarate, normale, sincere. Nu stiu de ce tot caut sinonime, dar simt ca nu am suficiente resurse ca sa exprim cat de mult imi place. Sa o ascultam.




2003 a fost un an foarte bun pentru Wyclef: un nou deal cu “J Records”, o compilatie “Greatest Hits”, producator pentru un numar mare de artisti – toate aceste activitati l-au tinut destul de sus, in topul preferintelor, fara ca el sa fie nevoit sa lanseze un album solo. Chiar si asa, Wyclef a decis ca toate aceste lucruri nu sunt suficiente si a creat “The Preacher’s Son”. Dupa albumul “Masquerade”, lansat in 2002, “The Preacher’s Son” il gaseste pe Wyclef plin de energie “buna”, chiar din primele momente. El vorbeste despre tragediile din lumea Hip-hop-ului: "Imagine if Biggie and Pac never got shot / Nas and Jay-Z they were still homies / Squash the beef with Ja Rule and 50 / Benzino shook hands with Eminem / And on the same record I heard Eve, Foxy and Kim". Albumul aduna si o serie de invitati cu greutate, Patti LaBella, Redman, Carlos Santana, Scarface, sau Monica, ca sa mentionam doar cateva nume. Si, spre deosebire de majoritatea albumelor rap, care se sprijina pe aceste featuringuri pentru cresterea vazarilor, in acest caz nu reprezinta decat completarea muncii lui Wyclef, a versurilor, a liniilor melodice sa ideilor lui originale. “The Preacher’s Son” este unul dintre cele mai complete lucrari ale artistului.

Versuri
I wanna thank y'all for coming to see the preacher's son tonight (thank you)
Fellas, hold on to your girl right now
Yeah right now we're gonna slow the whole dancefloor down
Oh yeah, take it back to the old school, let's go

Baby, let me holla at you
You know there's no greater love
Than a woman who loves a man
And a man who loves a woman, ah yeah

I wanna love ya
And I ain't talking trash neither, ey
This is something that I can feel deep in my soul, oh, oh
We gonna listen to some Marvin
We gonna listen to some Isley
We gonna listen to some Teddy Pendergrass (Pendergrass)
Ooh, once I got you in the mood
I wanna introduce myself to you
We gonna listen to Smokey
We gonna listen to Stevie
We gonna listen to Donny Hathaway
Ooh, would you please lay your body next to mine, ah yeah

Doggy, and I ain't talking bout my pitbull neither
I'm talking about the first lady
That was there in the beginning when your daughter wasn't with it, oh yeah

I wanna love ya
And I ain't talking trash neither, ey
This is something that I can feel deep in my soul, oh, oh
We gonna listen to some Marvin (Marvin)
We gonna listen to some Isley (Isley)
We gonna listen to some Teddy Pendergrass (Pendergrass)
Ooh, once I got you in the mood
I wanna introduce myself to you
We gonna listen to Smokey
We gonna listen to Stevie
We gonna listen to Donny Hathaway
Ooh, would you please lay your body next to mine, ah yeah

Yeah, I'm a young man with an old soul, girl
My daddy told me a good woman
Is worth more than diamonds and precious pearls
Yeah, yeah, yeah
So lay back, and let me massage you, everywhere now
I can feel the warmth in your body
Hotter, hotter, hotter, hotter, hotter
You make me so hot

We gonna listen to some Marvin
We gonna listen to some Isley
We gonna listen to some Teddy Pendergrass (Pendergrass)
Ooh, once I got you in the mood
I wanna introduce myself to you
We gonna listen to Smokey
We gonna listen to Stevie
We gonna listen to Donny Hathaway
Ooh, would you please lay your body next to mine, ah yeah

Acest album ne “dezvaluie” un Wyclef sensibil, de o sinceritate surprinzatoare, spun unii. Eu nu pot uita nici alte piese care “mi-au rupt capu’”, “911” cu Mary J. Blige, sau “Gone ‘till November”. Wyclef mi se pare un artist complet, a tinut “in spate” trupa “The Fugees”, din punct de vedere al productiei, a ajutat foarte multi artisti sa devina nume pe scena internationala, a compus pentru el si pentru altii, are un simt artistic impecabil iar piesa “Baby” este Dumnezeul meu… Astazi:)
