Chaka Khan feat. Mary J Blige – Disrespectful (Matty’s Soulflower Replayed) (White Label)
“I Remember when you used to love me…” Among the countless mysteries (if not aberrations) of marketing in the history of contemporary music… One would have to explain me why this irresistible rework never managed to be given an official release. Be it on the US 2007 single on Sony/BMG. As on the remix pack that saw the light 2 years after on UK label Megafan Records!
So… disrespectful at the end, don’t you think? As not only in regards to two of the most powerful female singers of their generation. But also considering the killer remixing work courtesy of Matthis Heilbronn. The latter comin’ up with a bumpin’ taylor made environment for Mrs Khan and Blige. Allowing them to jam like rarely anyone else would on this funky led bass driven joint, punctuated with killer horn parts.
Originally produced by Jam & Lewis, ‘Disrespectful’ eventually resurfaced the year after with extra remixes by the likes of JoVonn and Quentin Harris…
