Whether fans realize or not, half the songs they grew up on were sampled from older hits. Depending how far removed the new target demographic is from those originals, most listeners never even catch on. These days, not much has changed, as the majority soaking up Love Dollhouse’s infectious new single “Can I” probably have no clue how closely the song resembles a huge hit from last decade.
Getting steam from a beat that’s nearly identical to Shaggy’s 2001 single with Janet Jackson, “Luv Me, Luv Me”, the main repackaging on this pre-made radio killer is the bubbly R&B trio from Detroit. From where we’re standing, that’s an upgrade.
With backing from Russell Simmons and Steve Rifkind’s new All Def Music imprint, look for this flip to stay steaming all summer long. Then, again in 2026, when it’s flipped by a cross-dressing robot.
