With the memory of La Whit schooling Oprah last week on how to properly lace your blunts with a little “booga suga” still freshly etched into my memory comes the video premiere of her best single in years, “Million Dollar Bill”. Its a Swizz Beatz/Alicia Keys production baked in a warm, glorious 70s disco groove topped off with a honey rich vocal from what Ms. Winfrey accurately kept referring to as “the voice”.
I keep reading comments on message boards about how the video isn’t anything special, but it is special in the sense that “Million Dollar Bill” is Whitney’s stunning reassurance to fans that she has indeed made it through storm and momma feels so good she wants you to put “one hand in the air… oh yeah.” Through a series of nightclub close-ups that recalls her “You Give Good Love”-era, shots of those pearly whites that go on for days, and set-ups of her looking flawless in both a cocktail dress and a sequined gown, Whitney shows those Destiny’s Child girlies what a real “Survivor” and a “Soldier” is.
