I'm Gonna Make You Mine Promo CD Single

Critical reception

Billboard called it a "hip-swaying pop/funk jam (that) ushers a promising new vocalist into the urban radio fold. Chunky beats click respectably, while Blount vamps with ample range and confidence. She is clearly inspired by a solid song that is strengthened by a catchy sing-along chorus. A mixed bag of sturdy remixes aims for street juice, club approval and mature audience acceptance—and should succeed greatly. An enticing peek into Blount's "Natural Thing" debut." [2]
