MONO: “Baby Can I Hold You Tonight” by Foxy Brown.

THE SONG: Sorry.

WHO: Foxy Brown.

WHY IT’S HOT… For a hot minute in the very 80s, this Tracy Chapman cover was the song of songs. The lyrics, the voice, the music all fit perfectly. (Tell me that the tweaked baseline doesn’t carry the song gently.) Foxy Brown’s interpretation is actually much more tender than the original, adding another level to the lyrics. After all the betrayal why all the tenderness?

WANT MORE? How can we not give you the original?
