 Loleatta Holloway: We're Getting Stronger (the Longer We Stay Together)

It's bigger than me and it's bigger than you!

Following the posting of Whitney's last track below, here's the tune that it was sampled from. Loleatta Holloway who died early last year recorded We're Getting Stronger (the Longer We Stay Together) back in 1973 and is a bonafide disco classic, taken from her debut album Loleatta. The American singer was mainly known for her other big disco hits such as Hit and Run (also from her debut) and Love Sensation, both of which have been sampled extensively as well.

Black Box's No.1 best selling single of 1989 - Ride On Time samples heavily from Love Sensation. Her vocals were originally used without credit, but she successfully sued the band and received an undisclosed share of the royalties. She also sang on Relight My Fire by Dan Hartman. I love what Alicia Keys and Whitney Houston done with this song, but the original still holds a class of it own. Holloway was a powerhouse of a singer and will remain one of the most respected divas of her generation.

Buy the album on iTunes, a classic from start to finish.
