We gave it a C

Although this cut from the Love Jones soundtrack hardly reaches the infectious heights of Dionne Farris’ ’95 hit, ”I Know,” the vocals are as soulful and smooth as ever. But lyrically, her bittersweet love hangover goes seriously amiss. ”They say I’m hopeless as a penny with a hole in it,” she sings on “Hopeless.” Hopelessly hokey.
