A new nadir?

by Ted Hoffman

In the late 90s Gerri Halliwell released in quick succession the songs 'Mi Chico Latino', 'Bag it up' and 'It's raining men'. Popular consensus at the time was that this was the poorest triumvirate of released singles there had ever been.

Nobody had since got close until 50 cent signaled his attempt to challenge by following up the puerile and tuneless innuendo of 'Candy Shop' with the less subtle and more annoying 'Just a lil bit'. A bit of a pity then that his next effort was the merely ordinary 'Outta Control', looks like Gerri's record will live to see another day.
