Oakenfold feat. Pharrell Williams - Sex 'N' Money
After his sizzling smash hit Faster Kill, Pussycat with the delectable Brittany Murphy, you'd forgive superstar DJ Oakenfold if his follow-up single didn't feature a fancy celeb guest spot. However, it seems all the cool kids fancy a piece of the action these days with Pharrel Williams of The Neptunes and N.E.R.D. joining forces with the disc spinner for an effective little dance choon.
Sex 'N' Money sees Pharrell chipping in over a banging backdrop, accompanied by a synthetic female voice claiming 'Girls just want sex and money'. The radio edit doesn't outstay its welcome, clocking in at just under three minutes, and it is an effective little club cut that is interesting in its cynicism in a genre that can be largely superficial. The original club mix is also presented in its six minute entirety. And, if you just can't get enough of the song, you get more bang for your buck with no less than five remixes accompanying it, all offering a slight variation on the original.
