Monday morning. Back to the grind. Horrible. Well, throw this track on and relax for a few.
“Strawberry Letter 23″ is a 1972 record by Shuggie Otis, inspired by the strawberry-scented letters written to him by his girlfriend. Kinky, right. It is most known for a version performed by The Brothers Johnson on their platinum album Right On Time, produced by Quincy Jones.
Can you recognize the samples? That’s right, we hear Outkast’s ‘Ms. Jackson’ and none other than “ohhh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohhh” in Color Me Badd’s ‘I Wanna Sex You Up’ (1:53).
