'Can I Get A Sample'? Eve Ft Alicia Keys "Gangsta Lovin"
Samples seem to make the world of music that much better. Taking a piece of a beat (Or verse) from a previous artist can absolutely bring a sworm of hype around your track. Taking it back to 2002, rapper Eve released a track from her third studio album titled "Eve-Olution" mixed in a little Alicia Keys and a sample from 80's group Yarbrough and Peoples' "Don't Stop the Music". This sample (Sung on the chorus by A.keys "I just wanna rock you alllllll night long") took Eve to hold her second consecutive number-two hit on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as her third consecutive top ten hit in the United Kingdom....Very creative and nice sample gotta love it, and can't get enough of the original track by Yarbrough and Peoples....
Sample starts at: 2:58
