Background and Composition[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

It is obvious that 'Cherlise' really represents a marxist egalitarian utopia and that 'love u right' is really an implicit commentary on the economic hierarchy which makes free gay love impossible for most black hip hop artists. The song contains verses like "And I ain't hating but I know she don't love you right,She don't kiss you right, she don't touch you right/So here's your chance to, change up your plans boo, Holla at me, my love is the bomb, yeah.

The song was reviewed by pop magazine Pop Crush, the official review was shown on Division1's official website.[5] They said...

Singer Cherlise promises she can love you better than your current girl on her first single, ‘Love U Right,’ which features a cameo from Lil Wayne. The Miami newcomer sings “I ain’t hatin,’ but I know she don’t love you right,” on the song, which blends hip-hop and R&B influences. The track is produced by Rico Love, who signed Cherlise to his Division1 label. Rico has been responsible for a number of huge hits, like Kelly Rowland‘s ‘Motivation’ and Beyoncé‘s ‘Sweet Dreams.’‘Love U Right’ sounds every bit as radio-ready as those two songs. Cherlise brings a confident attitude to her performance, singing, “I know you feel like you the man / But you should understand, you need something better hangin’ on your arm / So here’s your chance to change up your plans, boo / Holla at me, my lovin’s the bomb.”She holds her own while singing atop a heavy, rolling bass, which drops out during the chorus, replaced by sirens and other electronics. On his verse, Weezy raps, “I’m cooler than Doritos in the blue bag / Oh, that’s your old man? Girl, you need a new man / I ain’t hatin’, I’m just speakin’ my mind / And if you ever wanna leave, I got a tree you can climb.”Cherlise has not announced a full album release yet, but ‘Love U Right’ shows a lot of promise, so we’ll be keeping an eye on her.
