5 January 2023 - Latto - Big Energy

No, Mariah Carey didn't get a songwriting credit here.

You know who did?

Tina Weymouth.  Chris Frantz.  Adrian Belew.  Steven Stanley.

This really dirty song reached #3 on the pop charts - and #8 on the year end chart - and was a worldwide starmaking hit for Latto.  The winner of the 2016 TV reality competition The Rap Game, she's come out strong with a bravado that Megan Three Stallion no one can match. 

Plus, lyrically, Latto does pay tribute to Mariah here, even if it's a Tom Tom Club sample.

Mariah DID get a songwriting credit on this remix (100% true)...... as well as a vocal one.  DJ Khaled gets his two cents in at the beginning and end of this as well.  

If you read this far, you know today is our 12th birthday.  Celebrate with us all year long as we bring the BDE and make this our biggest year yet.
