Mesmerized" is a song by American R&B recording artist Faith Evans from her fourth studio album The First Lady. Evans wrote the song and is a throw-back to 1960s music, the uptempo dance funk song exhibits style similar to that of Aretha Franklin and James Brown, among others. The musical composition of the song, as well as Evans' vocals and versatility, positively surprised critics, who ranked it among the album's standout tracks. A prominent remix of the song, produced by English dance duo Freemasons, reached number one on the US Hot Dance Club Songs chart and remained atop for three consecutive weeks. The song was also promoted by a Bryan Barber-directed music video which features Evans performing with her band in a ornate hall in front of a light wall. This ditty has always gotten me dancing and has been done by the Mistress in performance...good times!
