Throwback: Brandy – i wanna be down (feat. Mc Lyte, YoYo & Queen Latifah) (1994)

I was only 1 year old when this song was released. It was first brought to my attention as the excellent Blawan mix: Getting Me Down (listen here).

Brandy Norwood released this in 1994 as the first single from her self-titled debut. It was remixed later that year as a collaboration adding 3 of the biggest females in hip hop at the time: YoYo, Queen Latifah and Mc Lyte; who provided a lot of attitude. Smooth beats and a chilled out tempo mean that this is something to groove, move and relax to: a song appropriate for all occasions. Upon the first, drawn-out ‘down’ I was hooked.
