'90s Sundays

Pony by Ginuwine

This tune takes us right back to 1996! Ginuwine's very first single is overtly sexual, and I love it. (I'll ride his pony anytime. My schedule is officially CLEARED.) One of Timbaland's earlier productions, this song contains all the synthy funkliciousnes we've come to expect from the super-producer. If you listen closely, you can hear various elements (such as the slow, winding, pulsing beat imitating the fantastical ideal of sex) that came into full form on Timbaland's later work with Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake (on the masterpiece that is FutureSex/LoveSounds). This track perfectly fuses hip-hop, R&B, and POP. These genres began to fully blend in the '90s, and Pony is the ideal representation. Listen and enjoy!

Unapologetically,

Gregory
