It's official. "Think (About It)" is now the third (3rd) song in WhoSampled to be sampled over 1000 times! A pretty big breakthrough for Lyn Collins (R.I.P.) and as specially James Brown.
I Don't Understand. What do y'all mean by an "Original Sample"?
@thunder axe: Maybe not the "original" sample (it's been sampled before, see the chain) but the best known/most liked one.
so... is this the original "yeah/woo!" sample, or is there another reason why this is in the top 5?
Rob Base & DJ EZ-Rock did an excellent job in sampling "Think (About It)". Even though Lyn Collins is NOT listed as a "Featured artist" on the release, it is obvious that she re-recorded her vocals on the sampled track and , therefore, contributed uncredited vocals on the Rob Base DJ EZ-Rock track. Just listen to both tracks at the times listed above and you'll know what i am talking about.
I had it blazing out my speakers yesterday, and it had me thinking why I never hear that on the radio, gets me moving every time, what a groove
THINK!!!! classic joint!!! spawned so many classic hip hop songs!!!
the guy at his right looks like a dope def! excelent use of the sample,yes! addictive!
This was simply meant to be. Lyn Collins, you go woman. Great job with DJ Ez-Rock for cracking up that beat. My ears are going to blow up.
