It's been 10 years since Tweet's hit masturbation ode "Oops (Oh My)," with little chart activity in between ("Call Me" went Top 40, so she isn't technically a one-hit wonder, but still...). In another era, there would be no Tweet to speak of a decade later, but thanks to the magic of the Internet, she remains a presence who's taken to releasing a series of barely commercial R&B songs accompanied by the #TweetTuesdays hashtag. These kicked off with an impressively sung remake of Aretha Franklin's "Day Dreaming." The third in the series, "C 4eva," is below. Beatless but propelled by rhythmic cricket sounds, the song finds Tweet oozing delicately over an acoustic guitar. It's equal parts Deniece Williams and Aaliyah. It's so ethereal, it's practically ambient. It sounds like it blew right past the shackles of pop aspiration.
In other, non-embeddable news, RollingStone.com is streaming Matthew Herbert's latest EP of remixes from Björk's Biophilia. Ingenious stuff, particularly "Sacrifice," which benefits the most from Herbert's organizing.
Oh, and that anticipated remix of M.I.A.'s "Bad Girls" featuring Missy Elliott and Rye Rye is finally available for listening.
