Last time Beenie Man cropped up on my musical radar, he was yelling "Zim
zimma! Who got de keys to my bimma?" over some rude dancehall in highly
entertaining fashion. So I was expecting this new release, produced by the
mighty Neptunes and featuring Janet (Jackson - it seems nobody whose

lacklustre R&B-lite vocals.
A crying shame, and one only partly rectified
by the inclusion of an instrumental version of the track on the single.
Worth buying if you're a DJ or Neptunes obsessive - otherwise I'm sure it'll
soon be on heavy rotation on your local commercial station over the next few
