Kool & The Gang resurface to give us a brand new track that has that golden 70’s throwback sound but with enough thump to appeal to a (slightly) younger audience.

The veteran band speaks to a woman in a way that gets her attention but is still respectful by asking her where she got all her beauty and sass from.  This is a fine line to walk, and most modern singers tend to go a little to hard when they try it, but since two members come from an era where this kind of thing was the norm, the group pulls it off fine.  The vocals are surprisingly crisp, with only just a little bit of age showing for a set of men who are well over sixty and the harmonies add a funky edge that make it a danceable track.  The brassy production gives good energy as well as makes the throwback feel and makes the song perfect for summer.
