Ricki-Lee Copies Beyoncé, Remains Basic

After years of loyal stanning, Ricki-Lee really plummeted in my estimation after bashing Breezy on Facebook in a calculated move to improve her social media presence. She might be as basic as a cheeseburger without the cheese but I've never been able to fault her music - until now. "Do It Like That" sounds like a reject from Mariah's Rainbow album. It's so dated and embarrassing. The hook is catchy in a late '90s kind of way but the whole thing falls flatter than Taylor Swift's chest. How you can go from a stone cold smash like "Raining Diamonds" to this garbage? Those diet pills are clearly messing with her head. Unfortunately, the visual is just as bad. The first half blatantly rips off Beyoncé's iconic "Crazy In Love", while the second half swagga jacks King B's exercise video "Move Your Body" - only with really bad dancing and outfits. Just because you're skinny doesn't mean you can walk around without pants! So basic.

Ricki Lee is her own biggest fan. She really needs to go.

I think the video is blah.. but the song is HOT. I think it's way different and so much better than that "Call me Maybe" bullshit that's #1 on itunes. It's upbeat pop music. There is finally something that sounds different and it gets labeled as dated? In what way does this have any resemblance to Mariah, let alone the Rainbow album?

Oh come on. This is a cute song and a cute video. Can't anything just "be" without being compared to something else?

I stan for Fred Falke but that remix is like putting lipstick on a pig.

I often agree with you, Mike, and at first I dismissed this song as a second-rate Beyonce knock-off, but the more I listen to it, the more charmed I am. It's so much infectious FUN!
