Lil Kim’s career over the years has gone from legendary to laughable. While we can’t deny her impact and her accomplishments in the industry, her music as of lately has been sub par. She decided to treat us to a Valentine’s Day release of her new single, “If You Love Me” …and surprisingly it’s not bad.[audio: http://www.electrolov3.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Lil-Kim-If-You-Love-Me-BMF.mp3]
“If You Love Me” features what seems to be a return to The Naked Truth era Kim with heavily synthesized vocals. It’s not a bad single, but it’s not great either. The production is light and summery, and lyrically it’s really sweet. This just isn’t it. Keep going Kim, I haven’t given up on you. This is a good step in the right direction…now just need to get this appearance together!
