Released: August 1996

After a lengthy break, En Vogue returned with this track from the soundtrack of the little seen film Set It Off. A ballad about a potential lover who just won’t commit, the song became, through the sheer strength of their vocal wills, about female empowerment. Dawn, Terry, Cindy and Maxine pummeled this song into submission with the same focus that they used to power the likes of ‘My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)’ and ‘Hold On’. The lyrics may have been desperate and unresolved but their performance was gutsy and full of knowing gravitas. (PE)
