If you read yesterday’s post, then you’re already familiar with what Carl Carlton would do if another man touched his mama jama. Well, “The Rain” is basically a list of what Oran “Juice” Jones would do if his mama jama touched another man.
It’s a musical sequel equal parts heartwarming (Carl’s found love!) and offputting; one hopes there’s a third song in the trilogy where he finally realizes that bad mama jamas’ bodies belong to themselves.
If we’ve learned anything from our writeup on L.A. Reid back in 2016, it’s that if there is a successful songwriter and producer from the last 30 or so years, they probably had a Jheri Curl album of their own in the mid-’80s.
