Misha B: Here’s To Everything (Ooh La La La)

X Factor alumni Misha B returns with her third single, the sample loving ‘Here’s To Everything (Ooh La La La)’…

I think it is important to be clear at the outset that it is the ‘Ooo La La La’ sample which makes this song and not a lot else.

Most likely to be attributed to The Fugees by people who can’t be bothered to look at Wikipedia, the hook is in fact taken from the 1988 song by American R&B singer Teena Marie.

As the song builds and the sample kicks in ‘Here’s To Everything’ brings with it a whole world of expectation, seconds later my heart sinks as the crashing Nero-esque beats begin to tick away.

All is not lost though as this is perhaps the first single on which Misha B’s unique vocal sound really shines through.

Lines like ‘put your hand inna the sky’ remind me of those vocal ad libs which she used to great effect, transforming mundane chart hits during her successful run on The X Factor.

Ultimately, ‘Here’s To Everything’ is a decent enough single but when you strip away the sample and the overbearing production, lyrically it is a lot of whimsical nonsense.

Listen to Misha B ‘Here’s To Everything (Ooh La La La)’:

‘Here’s To Everything (Ooh La La Longest song title ever..) is out in the UK on April 14.
