Mila J has been taking us back to the '90s recently. In January, the songstress released an entire mixtape dedicated to covers of some of our favorite old school jams, including SWV's “Anything” and Xscape's “Just Kickin' It.” She takes her love of the '90s and puts her modern spin on it once again in her newest single “Me & You.”
I. Rich produced the track and starts “Me & You” off with a sample of Tony! Toni! Toné!'s "Just Me and You" before flipping the script by absorbing the sample into a totally new beat. Mila J softly sings over bouncy 808s, traditional trap hi hats and a bubbly arrangement of synths in the background. Of course, “Me & You” is about Mila J declaring her love for her man while celebrating their unbreakable bond. Trust is the center of any healthy, functional relationship and Mila J reminds her lover of that with, “I f**k with my girls but it's you I trust / I trust you with everything."
Overall “Me & You” is a well-produced track that effortlessly takes classic elements of '90s R&B and incorporates them into a modern song. This seems to be Mila J's modus operandi so far; we're really loving how she uses the decade as inspiration but still manages to craft her own unique sound. Mila J is currently working on her debut full-length LP, which is set to drop sometime this summer. Until then, listen to “Me & You” right here to continue your post Valentine's Day romance.
