After two releases, 2005's Unframed and the 2006 EP Inspired, local R&B singer Margot B. has aimed squarely for the dance floor with her new full-length album, Two Thousand Mine. The 10-track CD, produced mainly by E. Dan at the ID Labs studios, includes the single "Havoc," produced by Juliano and featuring emcee Wiz Khalifa, and "Jungle Fever," produced by Josh Everette. (For a 2006 feature story on the early years of Khalifa and ID Labs, check out "Prince of the City.")
Including Margot's, Allmusic.com lists 190 recordings of songs called "Jungle Fever" — from which we conclude it's a pretty feverishly hot subject in pop music. While Margot's song insists that "Anyone can get jungle fever overnight," you can get it right here from CP, for free, in just a few seconds.
