Lion Babe – “Move on Up” (Curtis Mayfield Remake) [FULL STREAM] @lionbabe @jillonce

Lion Babe - Move on Up (Curtis Mayfield Sample) [FULL STREAM] @lionbabe @jillonceLion Babe just keeps putting out quality material.  A while back, we brought you their sexy Treat Me Like Fire and received an amazing response.   Their lead singer, Jillian Hervey, just happens to be the daughter of Vanessa Williams and possesses the same presence and vocal talent as her mom.  We really love this sound, look and feel especially given the source.  Sampling Curtis Mayfield is one thing but remaking Curtis is an entirely different animal.

NYC electro-soul duo LION BABE has been turning up on everyone’s radar as of late for a remarkable blend of big, bolstering r&b chops and radio-friendly pop stuff. Today, they’ve given us a taste of how those sentiments might apply to, say, a funk & soul classic, like Curtis Mayfield’s timeless anthem of upheaval “Move On Up,” where the soul legend’s guitar lead and horn arrangements are supplanted for singer Jillian Harvey‘s twangy delivery over a beat that’s all synths and electronics.
