When I listen to
Maneater, I hear influences of the Canadian rocker, Peaches, except without the explicit lyrics. “Maneater” sounds like a blend of Peaches’ Cum Undun/Hot Rod/Lovertits.
This is not a complaint. I very much like “Maneater”. This is an
interesting new direction for Nelly Fertado. But I’m skeptical whether
she’s got what it takes to pull off an entire album of this hiphop/rap
meets dancefloor technique.
