NATACHA ATLAS | Who's My Baby?

LYRICS:

Yet again I'm awake at night
Thinkin' 'bout what's goin' on
I'm sick and tired of the ways the fight
That I know just can't be won
All I do, I do in vain
What's the point in tryin' to change
If you only stay the same

[Arabic part]

So tell me why these tears I cry
Keep passing by, I don't know why
I can't see what's good for me
Just need to know
So tell me who's my baby

[Arabic part]

I'm gonna change what I feel inside
I've gotta change my point of view
I've had enough of all the lies
And the pain you've put me through
'Cos this is now and that was then
But I know somewhere deep inside
I will ask myself again

[Arabic part]

So tell me why these tears I cry
Keep passing by, I don't know why
I can't see what's good for me
Just need to know
So tell me who's my baby

So tell me why these tears I cry
Keep passing by, I don't know why
I can't see what's good for me
Just need to know
So tell me who's my baby

REVIEWS:
x What marks out Something Dangerous, like most of Atlas' albums, is its eclecticism. It swings easily from the hard dance of Daymalhum to Who's My Baby, a piece of sweetly soulful R'n'B that puts the likes of Mary J Blige and Ashanti to shame. John Murphy

x 'Who's My Baby' has Niara Scarlett also featuring on vocals. It's a credit to Atlas that she's willing to give other performers so much space on her album. The different languages and vocal styles interweave very successfully. Kara Kellar Bell

x (...) a decent slab of possible Top 40 material, with some nice production changes from Atlas's to Scarlett's vocals, but ultimately incongruent in its track order placing. Gentry Boeckel

x (...) the One to get radio play has to be "Who's My Baby," featuring The Cinematic Orchestra vocalist Niara Scarlett, in a cross-continental R&B jam so hot Mary J. would blush with inequity. derek
