You guessed it. I got a theme going on here for Valentine's weekend. Here is another great cover of a classic American soul record.
"I Wanna Get Next To You" (click that title to hear the original version) was originally released in 1977 and performed by Rose Royce (of "Carwash" fame).
This 2009 1-drop version is by Courtney John. Definitely check out his album "Made In Jamaica". It's a really good record and it goes against my "there is no good new music out" stance. :D
