Rick James: Give It To Me Baby

Eran los comienzos de los años 80, y Rick James era una estrella que brillaba con fuerza. Se había convertido en una celebridad gracias a su RnB aliñado con toques rítmicos de tremenda fuerza punk y sintetizadores, sonido y letras punzantes de alto contenido sexual que dieron como resultado canciones como "You and I", que lo lanzó a una división superior, y "Super Freak", una canción que marca de por vida la carrera de un artista. Versionada por muchos artistas, sirvió de base para que fuese el mayor éxito del rapero MC Hammer, "U Can't Touch This". Su éxito personal, lo desdobló realizando labores de producción en la vuelta de los Temptations, y fue el iniciador del grupo Mary Jane Girls, a la vez de responsable de su exitoso primer single "In My House", y padrino de la malograda también Teena Marie, con la que compartió baladas tan desgarradoras como "Fire And Desire" .
Se adueño de una fama que no supo manejar por una vida de excesos; drogas y mujeres que lo llevaron a pasar 2 años en prisión, una embolia cerebral le afecto al habla y la movilidad..., como resultado una muerte prematura a la edad de 56 años. Un final lleno de penurias y lamentable para el que muchos consideraban el sucesor de James Brown, pero que desde luego dejó una huella imborrable en el mundo de la música con canciones como las anteriormente citadas, o ésta titulada "Give It To Me Baby". Recordándome en su base al "Thriller" de Michael Jackson, cuenta con todos los aditivos "Rick James"; letra con alto contenido sexual, ritmo, y la esencia funky de un hombre irrepetible. 


Letra


When I came home last night
You wouldn't make love to me
You went fast asleep
You wouldn't even talk to me

You say I'm so crazy
Coming home intoxicated
I say just want to love you, I just wanna love you, baby
Guess that's why I'm so elated, come on, girl

Give it to me, baby (Give it to me, baby)
Give it to me, baby (Give it to me, baby)
I betcha I'll make you holler you've had enough
Give it to me, baby (Give it to me, baby)
Just give it to me, baby
Give it to me, baby (Give it to me, baby)
I betcha I'll make you holler you've had enough

Give it to me
Give me that stuff, that funk, that sweet, that funky stuff {Say what}
Give it to me
Give me that stuff, that funk, that sweet, that funky stuff {Say what}

Give it to me, give it to me
Give it to me, give it to me
Give me your stuff, that funk, that sweet, that funky stuff (Yo-ho, ow)

Give it to me, baby

When I was high as the sky
Out all night just dancin'
You say, 'Let's go home' {Come on, Rick, I'm tired, let's go home}
That's the time I start romancin'

You say how can I love you, how can I love you, baby
When your body keeps on movin'
I say wait till I squeeze you, oh
Maybe then you'll start to groovin', come on, girl

Give it to me, baby (Give it to me, baby)
Give it to me, baby (Give it to me, baby)
I betcha I'll make you holler you've had enough
Give it to me, baby (Give it to me, baby)
Just give it to me, baby
Give it to me, baby (Give it to me, baby)
I betcha I'll make you holler you've had enough

Give it to me
Give me that stuff, that funk, that sweet, that funky stuff {Say what}
Give it to me
Give me that stuff, that funk, that sweet, that funky stuff {Say what}

Give it to me, give it to me
Give it to me, give it to me
Give me your stuff, that funk, that sweet, that funky stuff (Yo-ho, ow)
Hey, girl

Give it to me what you say
Give it to me what you say
{Give it to me} What you say
{Give it to me}, what you say [Hey, girl]
Give it to me what you say
Give it to me what you say
{Give it to me, give it to me} [Hey, girl]

Give it to me what you say
Give it to me what you say
Give it to me, give it to me
Give it to me what you say
Give it to me right away
Give it to me, give it to me

Give it to me what you say
