Leave it to Hoody to come in with the sleeper jam for the season.

Speaking on the duality of her feelings for a man whom she loves and always runs away from her affection, Hoody puts her cool and sweet voice to work on a production that seems made for it.

The thing about this track is, despite being a slow jam, it has a little bit of bounce to it.  There is something in the underlying bass and beat that gives it a little extra something.  There are very few producers who are able to straddle the fence in terms of making something that sounds like a babymaker worthy of the terms bop but that’s what we have.

The vocals for this track show that her vocal abilities really have grown over the past year.  There is a lot more obvious strength in her tone than there was before, but she still manages to maintain the control to still dial back when she needs to.  What is missing is the unintended breathiness that came out in songs that didn’t require it in the past.  She is showing growth in a pretty appreciable way.

The lyrics are pretty well written.  There is a little wonkiness in the beginning, but everything smooths out by the time we reach the first chorus and the story begins to take shape.  Even the repetitive nature of the stanzas helps it out as it lets us know that she keeps hitting the same wall and going back for more.  We understand her more from these actions than her just telling us that she’s obsessed with getting him to love her.

Just shy of a year ago, Hoody gave us what has managed to remain a pretty solid listen of an album.  The past couple of months has seen her dropping new singles, so we wonder if there is a new project on the way.

Lyrics:
I contacted you first once or twice
But you usually contacted me first
It’s so obvious

I wanna tell you I miss you
But it’s obvious you’ll run away
So I tried to act like I’m not crazy

Just do one thing, I’m tired now
I don’t wanna wait anymore
Just do one thing, are you mine or not?
Where is your heart right now?

There’s no answer from the start
But I can’t accept it, I’m just wandering

I wanna tell you I miss you
But it’s obvious you’ll run away
So I tried but I can’t baby

Just do one thing, I’m tired now
I don’t wanna wait anymore
Just do one thing, are you mine or not?
Where is your heart right now?

There’s no answer from the start
But I can’t accept it, I’m just wandering

I wanna tell you I miss you
But it’s obvious you’ll run away
So I tried but I can’t baby

Just do one thing, I’m tired now
I don’t wanna wait anymore
Just do one thing, are you mine or not?
Where is your heart right now?

Just do one thing, I’m tired now
I don’t wanna wait anymore
Just do one thing, are you mine or not?
Where is your heart right now?

Let me
Let me know
