Original Song: Labelle "Lady Marmalade" (1975)


One of early disco's inexorable bangers–an unabashed celebration of New Orleans creole prostitutes getting seductive in French, with a second-line rhythm to match—updated with overbearing what-what's and yeh-yeh-yehs and performing-arts-school singing that prefers showing off to putting a plot across and a tacked-on rap verse that thinks there's something remotely interesting about having “expensive tastes,” plus blatant product placement announcements of both the celebrities participating and the movie that contracted with them to do so. Also, sorry, but when Kim says “getting' love from the dudes,” it really does sound like “Jews.”
