Des’ree – You Gotta Be (Sony Soho Square)

Classics: Des’ree – You Gotta Be (Sony Soho Square)

Des’ree immediately came to light at her debut. Thus displaying a unique voice and style. With the whole resulting in classics such as ‘Feel So High’, ‘Life’ and ‘Kissing You’ (from the ‘Romeo & Juliet’ OST). Not to mention ‘You Gotta Be’, one of the highlights from her ‘I Ain’t Movin” album back in 1994.

With writing and co-production work courtesy of Ashley Ingram of the Imagination fame, here we have such an uplifting theme. Thus glorifying the multiple powers that self-confidence gives. Speakin’ of the song, Des’ree eventually said… “‘You Gotta Be’ is about having the inner strength to figure out who you are…”

‘You Gotta Be’ would get a new life in the charts 5 years later. This after its use in the Ford Focus advertising campaign.

Strangely, the lady hasn’t released anything since her 2003 ‘Dream Soldier’ album…

What’s the value of your vinyl record?
