The current hit: “You Right” Doja Cat ft.The Weeknd
Linked to: “The Closer I Get To You” by Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway /1978
Because: Both songs are about sexual desire, and both songs are slow, silky, sensuous and elegant.
The difference is the story line: In “You Right” the man and woman are in committed relationships, but not with each other, and in the Flack/Hathaway song, they are already lovers.
As Doja Cat tells it, “You right, I got my guy, but I, I can’t help it, I want you.”
Charting: #5 Rhythmic Top 40 and #7 Top 40.
