702 - Star (Motown)
The young teeny bopper girl
group that brought you 'Steelo'
in 1996 and 'Where my girls at'
in 1999 respectively are back - and they're all grown up. The
girls (eh hum - excuse me) young ladies of 702
-- (Kameelah Williams and
sisters Misha and Irish
Grimstead) returns to the limelight after a 3 year
hiatus from it, sporting a more mature look and attitude on their
latest Motown set, 'Star'.
The lead off single of the
same name was produced by The Neptunes
and features Clipse doing
the guest spot thing. the song is tight using synths and rhythic
beats to bring the song to life. One should point out that the
idea for the song came courtesy of one of the Neptunes producers.
Said Irish 'Pharrell
(Williams of the
Neptunes - no relation to Kameelah)
came up with the idea for the song in the studio, He was coming
up with ideas as we were all getting a feel for each other and
figuring out what direction we wanted to go in. It was a blessing
working with Pharrell. We learned a lot, from watching him play
the drums live to all the other instruments.'
The album is due out Feb
25th 2003 so I suggest you go get a copy. A great track that will
do well whereever it's played one not to be passed up on - a TY-D
Pick through and though.
