These two songs definitely do music sampling well and are both great tracks to add to your Saturday Night ” A dee dee da da da Playlists”.
Azealia Banks – Esta Noche
NSFW lyrics — but would you expect anything else from Azealia Banks? Sampling a hit from the 90s (or maybe borderline 2000s?) Montell Jordan’s Get it on Tonight. A song I used to play and sing inappropriately around the house as a tween because I didn’t understand what it was really about.
Frank Ocean – Super Rich Kids (feat. Earl Sweatshirt)
I feel like everyone needs to go purchase Channel Orange because it is just that good of an album, in every way and incredibly well written — I couldn’t say enough good things and I haven’t stopped listening to it since I got my hands on it. The intro to Super Rich Kids is a clear Benny and the Jets sample, but then Frank Ocean goes on to lyrically reference another hit by Mary J. Blige — not her Burger King commercial but the 90s hit, Real Love. Go get the album or stream it free here and hear what I’m talking about and enjoy!
