"Hooch"

Another ode to the past, Kelis takes on the throwback colloquial term for alcohol as the title of this track, which highlights the theme of the album: horns and nostalgia.  Like an aged cognac over ice, the percussion and jazz elements put you in your "grown and sexy" state of mind, while Kelis's sultry voice of ooohs and ahhhs complement each note. "Hooch" can easily be an instrumental for the jazz enthusiast, but the combination of the instruments and her saucy serenade makes it palatable across multiple genres.
