One gets the feeling that Eve’s ‘Tambourine’ is a lot like Kelis’ ‘Milkshake’ only a mite less edible. It also seems to have more than a touch in common with Rihanna’s ‘Umbrella’ – but sadly doesn’t help half as much during a tropical downpour. Nevertheless, if you like your R&B down’n’dirty and with a hook so large that you could hang the entirety of Topshop’s coat stock for this coming winter season on it, then Eve’s your woman. With added inane-but-somehow-bordering-on-genius blokey mutterings from Swizz Beatz this is a long overdue ode to the powers of the prince of percussion.
