Review: Blaque – Blaque By Popular Demand

Somehow Blaque managed to release a “greatest hits” album despite having 2 unreleased album that were later butchered digital releases to iTunes. Blaque By Popular Demand was marketed and packaged as a “greatest hits” album by Columbia and Sony that was called Blaque By Popular Demand. The album included obscure remixes that are difficult to find.

As If was the song where Blaque took control of their relationships and told their men they are not going to run their lives for them. This song was used on the Blaque Out album and was also featured on the soundtrack for the 2000 movie Bring It On.

Blaque took control of their relationships and told their men they are not going to run them. Instead Blaque is going to run them. They’re doing fine out here on their own. Men, you think that you can come around here for some fun. But you’ve got a lot to learn. Blaque are not the ones to be messed with. Don’t shake your head from side to side. Saying that you’re changing all that. You want your way. And it’s that game that you play. It’s a little late for that now. As if they’re gonna let you break their hearts again.

Rainbow Drive was a call for people all over the world to come together for some unity and peace amongst one another. Everybody, come together! Let’s get to Rainbow Drive! Just feel the vibe. Blaque says you don’t need no money because it’s a natural high. They also tell people to forget about their worries as it’s gonna be alright. Love and peace on Earth is what they want.

Our time is too short. We’ve gotta live our lives. We got live together. When we do unto the others we pay. It might change your life when you understand that you’re only a shade away.

[Verse 1: Brandi]
People all over the world
Let’s come together
We need some unity
And peace among one another
Here’s what ya do (try)
Just let ya feel you (to)
You release your fears
And bring your mind
To my point of view

Blaque compares the intensity of their love making to the booming bass sound that an 808 can produce on their classic pop song “808”. Ironically the song uses beats from a Roland TR-808 drum machine rather than live instrumentation.

Notice how Natina was trying be and sound like Left Eye during her spoken word part the beginning of the song as well as Verse 3.

[Spoken: Natina]
Check it out
See what I believe is
We was granted the power
What’s that? Power, wha…
Ha, gotta make you dance
Like this

[Verse 3: Natina]
Ain’t nobody can bang it like me
Stack it like me, what’n like me
Ask Kelly, his original plan
To get as large on the map, by makin’ you clap your hands
Damn shoo bizzatch, I’m not gonna lie
I’ll pump my amps to this
Cutie pie, honey bunch
If you’re not busy take me to lunch
Oh, y’all done did it now, with the luscious music
World poppin’ crews, and what, 8-0 grooves
To what intended use, yeah you to get me up you
You wanted to bump, and get them 8’s
Cause they ride in my pocket baby
And today I just wanna
Jiggle my bump
And knock your socks off
Wit’ my what? What? What? (wha wha wha wha)

I rate this album 2/5**.
