For me it sounded worse. The mix was poorly done, the vocals didn't fit well. Robbie's voice is on a different volume than Victoria's and overall it sounded quite cheap. I don't know how a final version would've sounded, but the original is way better than the duet. And it's not like she needed that duet so I never understood why they had plans to release it when VB could've released that song on her own.


amen. I deleted that version, cuz it's awful! It sounds like a bad fan made song.

No, the 'outro' had a few more ad-libs by Robbie, which were talked over by the radio hosts. Thats a good effort though!

I would love to have the actual CD-RIP :(

Oh man do I hate that thing. It's every bit as heinous as I remember it being.

I've always viewed Victoria's solo version as the single best thing she ever did as a solo artist. To me, it the most obvious single off VB. When talk of I Wish being a single happened in 2002...I was like...'finally'. Then I heard...that.

The vocals don't blend at all. Victoria sang it intentionally calm and cool. It's one of the VB tracks that's very much by 'Posh Spice'. Craig...just didn't get the memo. He just sounds like he's trying to outsing her. It's jarring. And why is this version so needlessly noisy? Were adding beats that don't fit supposed to force it into being a hit?

Anyway. Glad some people like the duet because I think it's abysmal. Victoria's solo version deserved a top 3. The duet version deserved a trash can.

But i like the "live" performance of this. It could have been a top 3 hit for her and Virgin wouldnt just pulled the plug so easily

The original version is way better. I was glad back then they had finally picked the right single but then they performed that remix and I was not too fond of it... well it didn't matter anyway cuz the release never happened anyway.

Her attitude during the live show is great: the gangsta theme suits her perfectly!

I quite like the duet version of the song: it wasn't necessary but it adds something.

I remember it had too many "bubble" noises.

I think quality makes a huge difference, so I wouldn't judge it unless a proper version did leak.

I made a cleaner version that hasn't got the radio presenter intro. A bit better than the radio rip. xx

Imagine if Virgin splashed money on actually hiring a star like Robbie Williams instead of this person Robbie Craig, who the fuck is he anyway? It would have been a No.1 for sure. Virgin really fucked up her solo career with wrong singles choices and bad release dates.

Who was Robbie Craig anyway? Why was he chosen?

I can't get over how much he ruins the song. Why would you sing over the chorus? His voice seems too random like someone found the song and just sang over it.

Nah he wasn't an original East 17 member, he only joined them in 2014! Back in the early 00s he was just an up-and-coming singer who didn't end up making it (although he featured on a UK Top 10 hit in 2000, with Artful Dodger on 'Woman Trouble').

I wish the Victoria/Robbie Craig version would leak in HQ, mainly just to be able to say that we have it (because I don't like his contribution on the song anyway, haha... but the low-ish quality doesn't help matters).

I doubt there's even an official HQ version. I mean, the one they played on the radio and used to perform sounds bad, the volume levels are wrong, it's not well mixed and it's definitely not mastered. So my guess is that it was a quick demo he recorded on the studio and since the release got cancelled they never bothered to record and mix a proper version.
