Realistically, Late Nights & Early Mornings is looking like it will not see the light of day until early 2011. Not totally surprising given the way projects and release dates very rarely see eye to eye in current times. Still, as long as Marsha continues to release quality music every so often, all is well.
Earlier this summer, Miss Ambrosius liberated her scorned anthem “I Hope She Cheats.” A few eyebrows were raised, some comments were said, yet overall most people consider it another quality notch on her catalog. Pending you follow her on Twitter, then you already know she’s been eagerly alluding to the ballad version of the record. For good reason, too.
I’ve always imagined Marsha as this singer you’d see in a dimly lit jazz lounge entertaining those in attendance who seek refuge from a rainstorm outside. “The Ballad Of Hope (Sex So Good)” would serve as the soundtrack. With her commanding, yet sensuous voice, the songbird from across the pond never made revenge and karma sound so sexy as it did on this record. The faint piano chords and even fainter thunderstorm provide for the “movie feel” and one you pray doesn’t come to an end.
In other words, I really like this song.[audio:http://uproxx.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/marsha_ambrosius-the_ballad_of_hope_she_cheats_sex_so_good.mp3%5D
