Hey ladies! Ever wondered about a song you loved from years back and wish you can hear it again? There are times where I catch myself on youtube playing some of my favorite 90s and early 00s tracks just for nostalgia. Whenever I hear a sample of a song I use to be wild for in another artist’s song I feel a little bit of glee. With Remy Ma’s new track “Melanin Magic (Pretty Brown Eyes)” feat. Chris Brown, which contains a sample of “Pretty Brown Eyes” by Mint Condition, I was thinking what other tracks need to make a comeback. Here’s a few we came up with:
- Mo’ Money Mo’ Problems- The Notorious B.I.G
This song is one of the best tracks in hip-hop history. It received what seemed like an endless play on the radio years back. I wouldn’t mind hearing this track again these days as a sample.
2.) My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)- En Vogue
En Vogue’s influence never went away since they were one of the best girl groups of the 90s. I can imagine hearing its funky notes and guitar riffs (which are a sample off of James Brown’s “The Payback”) with contemporary R& B artists like Bruno Mars.
3.) Independent Women Pt. 1- Destiny’s Child
Either Beyonce can sample an old school Destiny’s Child track or some other artist could! Not sure about you but I miss Beyonce, Michelle Williams, and Kelly Rowland singing harmonies together. In these times where this new wave of feminism not going away anytime soon, we need to hear Independent Women Pt. 1 on the airwaves one more time.
4.) “No Scrubs”- TLC
Not sure how anyone can disagree here? “No Scrubs” was pretty much every girl’s anthem of 1999. It would be great to hear this song again resampled in some fashion.
5.) “I’m Every Woman” by Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston made tons of memorable hits from “I Will Always Love You” to “Million Dollar Baby”. Personally, “I Am Every Woman” is one of my favorites. It leaves me feeling empowered every time I hit “play”. Hearing this song making a comeback would be amazing!
