Paloma Ford has been making the rounds in the R&B game for several years now. Last year, she dropped her debut album Nearly Civilized and now she’s back with a new single called “Waves” featuring Dave East.
The seductive ballad, which is a reworking of Janet Jackson’s 2001 song “Would You Mind,” features Ford mimicking Ms. Jackson’s coos and come-hither lyrics to her prospective lover.
“I just wanna touch you, please you, show do miss you babe / Kiss you, f— you, surf you, ride your wave / I just wanna lick you / taste you / make love to you babe / Kiss you, f— you, ride your wave,” she sings on the chorus.
Harlem rhyme-spitter Dave East comes through and delivers his sensual verse boasting about his sexual prowess. “I like to bite, I like to choke / She like my type / She like my stroke, she gets my vote,” he raps, adding, “Let’s get in the shower, I’m trying to bathe in it.”
