With all the Black looks and Beyond beats and Rhymes and Feminism stuff we've been doing recently i was reminded of One of my favourite artists back in the 90's. When it came out in 1993 I was graduating from secondry school and it was such a big hit. It was by Neneh Cherry Who also did a version of it with Notorious B.I.G but i prefer the original. Anyway here it is. I recently found out it was (Supposedly)written about Lenny Kravitz who was cheating on Nenehs best friend Lisa Bonnet.
Buddy X was the name Kravitz would check into hotels while he was whoring himself off to groupies. Neneh was his opening act at the time and decided to take him down a peg or two.
I think it's a really interesting contrast to the hip hop videos that started popping up around that time. Even B.I.G's rap additions are full of the over masculinised material shown in the beyong beats and Rhymes video. It's funny that Nenehs lyrics should be merged with that.
Sorry the Sound is out of synch.
