Trina, The Baddest, teamed up with R&B Superstar (and one of her best friends), K. Michelle for their new single. “If It Ain’t Me.” A song that samples a legendary diva, Ms. Patti Labelle.
The two music geniuses teamed up, sampled a legend, and made it their own. The two sampled “Somebody Loves You Baby,” while questioning a lover who is going to love you… “If It Ain’t Me”?
Telling a story of a man cheating on his woman, wondering how could they do this, when no one can love them better.
“Who you lovin when I go out on a tour/ Bring back a check, i bet that bitch is such a bore/ Who you lovin, who you wanna be fucking?/ Cause I got nigga groupies at me, but my vibrator buzzin”
Whomever the pair is rapping/singing to, it’s clear they put hreat and feeling into this song. Not many people can sample a song, especially from a legend, and make it their own. However, the duo provided a different spin and unique take on the beat, yet, kept it simple. A true art form.
