Why is it that Beenie Man’s Dude (featuring Ms Thing) gets so much airplay? Perhaps it’s that Ms Thing promises to reveal all her womanly secrets? But she’s no female Roni Size – her diction is appalling – and she sounds like she’s been on the vodka and Red Bull as she slurs her way through; ‘I want a dude with the wickedest slam/I need a one, two, three hour man/I want a dude who will time me to the fan/a thug that can handle his biz like a man’. So when Beenie (who ain’t that much better, yet somehow remains a delight to listen to) comes back triumphant with, ‘You heard… what she preferred’, as if the secret to wonderful sexual relations has been revealed, I feel short changed. I had to look it all up here.
