“Mesmerize”
Artist: Ja Rule featuring Ashanti
Producer: Irv Gotti
Release Year: 2002
Song Sampled: “Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)”
Sample Release Year: 1973
Sample Effect: The instrumentation of this song really fits Ashanti’s voice well and provides something of a buffer between the listener and the gruffness of Ja Rule’s rap/singing.
Why The Song Is Dope: Because Ashanti & Ja were the Diana & Marvin of the new milleni—I’m sorry, I couldn’t even get through that. This song is terrible [Ed Note: I actually still like this song], but I definitely felt like a thug when I requested the DJ play it at my middle school dance. —MC
