“Gud 2 Me”
Em Bailey (2013)
T8 Flight Entertainment
Available on iTunes
Twenty-two year old Em Bailey is described as a “fierce praiser”—wild and heartfelt. Her debut single “Gud 2 Me” is all abuzz on the inspirational music circuit, combining gospel, R&B, rock, soul, and pop elements. The uptempo track leans more heavily toward R&B/pop, and—coincidence or not—the vocal stylings of Em and musical elements of “Gud 2 Me” bring to mind another “fierce” R&B/pop female sensation.

A grammar teacher may grimace upon repeatedly hearing, “He be He be gud / He be gud 2 me,” but the students wouldn’t. They’d be too busy pencil-tapping the tune’s rhythmic sequences on their desks.
