Intimate Friends

It's sad to me that Common and Alicia Keys have done more movies together than studio records. That's 1 to 0 if anybody's counting.

Common himself rumored about an "I Want You" remix with her, which woulda been fire, but it hasn't come about as of yet. But if you wanna link em up music-wise in another way (besides the less-than-stellar UnPlugged version of "Love It or Leave It Alone"), why not do it with a double sample article?

Both the Kanye-produced Alicia single and debut track from Common Sense (circa '92 again!) use the beautiful opening to Eddie Kendricks of the Temptations' 1977 song "Intimate Friends". Get up on your Motown history with this one!

Alicia Keys is fine. Just thought I'd mention that again before I closed the post ...

... this was whatcha all been waitin' for ain't it?
