#FridayBackTrack – An ’09 Classic

This week’s #fridayBackTrack is another song that reminds me of my teenage years. There was a time which I went through some sort of phase and listened to this song over and over again for days using my nokia xpress music phone ..hah! Remember that one?!?!

Anyway, the song is ‘Angels Cry’, sung by Mariah Carey and Ne-Yo. The song was released in 2009 and is the second song from the album, ‘Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel’. The song was released as a remix single. This is the first song featuring Ne-Yo that has been on my #fridayBackTrack but don’t worry, I’m sure he will be popping up here again since he also made a few really good sounds back in the day!

The video is very simple basically just documenting Mariah and Ne-Yo collaborating on the song and was directed by Nick Cannon (Mariah’s husband at that time). The song never reached number 1 but did come close by snapping up the number 4 slot on the South Korea International Digital Singles chart.

It’s a rainy day in Richards Bay. A great day for a hot, steaming cup of coffee and some good music. Here’s the song, take a listen!
