Milan, Italy-born Lucrezia returns with the follow-up to last summer's club hit "Lookin 4 Love." As a 1986 ballad, "Live to Tell" was a No. 1 single for Madonna; in 2001, Lucrezia's take here transforms the song into upbeat dance territory, adding a new flavor in the process. The model-turned-singer's sultry vocal is close enough to the original to fool all but the most attentive fans, and the new chord structure practically presents a new song. Mixes by David Morales add the remixer's classic, laid-back house vibe, topped off with his trademark piano work; Eddie Biaz contributes his interpretation as well. The vinyl double-pack boasts remixes aplenty from both gents. A bonus Baez remix will be included exclusively on the upcoming mixed CD DJ Eddie Baez Vol. 2, which hit stores June 19. This one is already riding the Club Play chart; could top 40 action be in the cards, too?—EA
