Quincy Jones handed production over to Akon. Which for me has ruined a great song. Tamia's version was a slow drag intimate ballad sung passionately. Jennifer's version is a overproduced dance track. It takes a lot to make Jennifer raw soul vocals sound "Pop".
Every song is not meant to be Pop or a dance track. I'm hoping that there will be a ballad version of this song available. Quincy Jones "Soul Bossa Nostra" will be available everywhere tomorrow 11/9/2010
