When the tracklist for Eric Benét's upcoming album, The One, first surfaced, there was one particular song listed that caught my attention with a mixture of both intrigue and fear. That song in question went by the title of "Redbone Girl," which immediately elicited intrigue and a raised eyebrow, and the fear and loathing came when I saw that Lil Wayne was a featured guest. Now that the song has leaked and I've gotten to hear it, I'm little torn about it. As a woman on the lighter end of the skin color wheel, I can appreciate this little bluesy number about "this one little particular situation." After all, Eric did sing about "Chocolate Legs" before, so why not show a little love to the redbone population? But on the other hand, do we really need an ode to skin color, which remains such a divisive topic in the Black community? And Weezy's verse just adds insult to injury and sours the whole stew. I won't exactly call this a misstep for Benét -- thank God he didn't go all Brian McKnight on us -- but now that this is out of his system let's get back to loverman business. All I know is that I'm looking forward to hearing a Lil Wayne-less version of this song to be released in addition to The One when it drops on June 5th.
