Throwback Thursday: Beenie Man – Girls Dem Sugar (ft. Mya)
E2E music feature writer Lydia returns with a sizzling hot summer anthem for Throwback Thursday.
What’s really good guys?! It has been ages since the last Throwback Thursday, but we are back and bigger and better than ever! With the amazing weather we’ve been having, I think we can safely say that summer is finally here – and what better way to welcome it than with a classic summer anthem?
I give to you Beenie Man‘s ‘Girls Dem Sugar’, featuring Mya. Can you believe this song is more than 10 years old? I remember when it first came out! I fell in love with it straight away – I mean how can you not? It’s such a happy-go-lucky tune, you can’t help but smile when you hear it.
However, I only truly began to appreciate the production on this track during my teenage years, when my love for music began to grow. If anyone were to hear this for the first time today, they would be able to tell from the jump that it is a Neptunes beat. You cannot mistake Pharrell William’s snare! That’s how you know Pharrell is a don – he can even school people on Bashment!
So without further ado, here’s this week’s Throwback Thursday!
