As my old friend Lawrence would say...

..."All I need is a big black bitch singin out her pussy!!"

I need no other explanation for this post. I love these women here! THIS is how dance music vocals are done!!

Barry Harris feat Pepper Mashay - I Got My Pride (Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Basically any dance song that has 'pride' in it is bound to be an anthem. It's here, it's queer, get used to it!**

Dolce - Fire (Orange Factory Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**My fave Dolce song. Where is SHE now??**

Jennifer Holliday - A Woman's Got The Power (Thunderpuss Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**There's no words for this one. Jennifer at her finest! She really is MY Dreamgirl!**

Jennifer Holliday - A Woman's Got The Power (Thunderpuss Pop Crossover Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**This is produced by Thunderpuss but it's alot tamer than the other mix. This is like Thunderpuss' Lite FM version. Still a dance beat but a little pretty as this song could ever get.**

Jennifer Holliday - Think It Over (Thunderpuss Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Another great track from Jenn and Thunderpuss!! As much as I love the edits for these songs, I highly reccommend the full club mixes on these two Jenn songs.**

Jennifer Holliday - Think It Over (Original Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**This version has more of a soulful disco house feel which is nice, but not something I really get into that often. I will say this though, go to the end of the edit, listen to the last 10 seconds. The noise she makes clearly isn't human. It's like she's eating notes by the second. How could you NOT love her??**

Reina - Anything For Love (Hex Hector Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**She may not be actually black but she's big alright and she's got a big voice to go with it. She's a mainstream dance music dream with catchy songs that make you throw your hands in the air. This one's no exception! Also, the backup singers on this one are dance music's own Deborah Cooper and Mariah Carey backup singer Mary Ann Tatum!**

Reina - Anything For Love (Welcome Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**A different take on this great track**

Reina - Find Another Woman (Hex Hector Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**It's a classic! Nuff said!**

Reina - Miss The Way (Razor N Guido Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Of all of Reina's songs, this is by far and above my favorite. Co-Written by Guido Osorio for their 'Dancefloor' CD, Reina rips this one apart with excellent production by Razor & Guido.**

Reina - Miss The Way (Junior Vasquez Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**While I definitely prefer Razor N Guido's mix of this, Junior's effort is excellent! Not as high energy as the RNG but it has some great elements in it.**

Reina - No One's Gonna Change You (Jonathan Peters Radio Edit)
**Official Edit**
**Another Reina classic! This is a gorgeous production by JP here but not my favorite.**

Reina - No One's Gonna Change You (Robbie Tronco Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Maybe it's because I heard this one before JP's but this is the mix I prefer. I fell in love with this song with this mix and even tho JP did an excellent job on this song, I prefer Robbie's tougher approach to it because it is in fact a "fuck you" type song.**

Kim English - Bumpin & Jumpin (Michael T Diamond Radio Edit)
**Official Edit**
**As much as I love some of her music, I never got why this one was as big as it was. Yes, Michael did a good job with it, but I think that Missing You was a MUCH better song and should've been a bigger hit than it was.**

Kim English - Missing You (JM's Extended Mindtrap Radio Mix)
**Tough song to edit!! There's so much of Kim throughout, so I did as best as I could and still trying to get the best parts from the song. This is a highly underrated Kim song and my favorite of all of her stuff.**

Kim English - Supernatural (Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**A lesser known Kim song. Produced by Hula.**

Kim English - Unspeakable Joy (Razor N Guido Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**This is Kim at her peak. This song was as unstoppable as it was 'unspeakable'.**

Kim English - Unspeakable Joy (Bobby D'Ambrosio Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**A funkier take on it. It's labeled as the Osio Edit when you DL it cause thats how they have it on the single, but I like to give people their credit when it's do.**

Deborah Cox - Something Happened On The Way To Heaven (JM's Junior Vasquez Radio Mix)
**While the Valentin mix to this really took over mainstream radio, I find that the Junior mix excells in the story telling aspect of this Phil Collins cover. Deborah of course sounds excellent and Junior's production is dark and dramatic which I love.**

Donna Summer - I Will Live For Love (JM's Chris Cox Radio Edit)
**This song was written by Donna for a musical she was writing about her life and times. Originally produced by Giorgio Moroder, Chris Cox took this WAY up to the next level! Drama galore and amazing vocals from the original Disco Diva!**

Pusaka presents Thea Austin - You're The Worst Thing For Me (JM's Dirty Pusaka Radio Edit)
**Thea Austin originally had her claim to fame as the voice behind Snap's "The Power" in the early 90's and thank god we had her for this anthem! Pusaka is actually the team of Chris Cox and DJ Irene who really made something amazing here. It's a shame they haven't collaborated again. I had to splice this one up because the radio edit on the single was censored when she sing "And I'm outta my head cause you're fucking my friend" and, well, how could I NOT include that?? Since I went that far, I also added the talking part at the end from the full mix.**

Vernessa Mitchell - This Joy (Razor N Guido Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Who doesn't know this one either? This is Dance Music History 101 and you don't get bigger or blacker than my girl Vernessa. Take it to church honey!!!**

Vernessa Mitchell - This Joy (Junior Vasquez Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**This song was actually in a movie. A documentary really called "Hang The DJ" which featured Junior in well as Kristine W. Even though the RNG mix was the more popular one, Junior turned out a solid club thomper as well.**

Tony Moran feat Deborah Cooper - Live You All Over (JM's Radio Edit)
**When Tony remixes a song, it's almost always amazing but when Tony writes and produces an original song, it's a whole new story. Deborah Cooper comes out from backup singer to the forefront in this one (as she did with Victor Calderone in "Are You Satisfied?") and really lets us have it!**
