The most amazing sample you’ve never heard!

Blues singer ZZ Ward premiered her new single “The Deep” featuring Joey Purp today on The FADER, and we’re loving every second. With Chi-Town‘s Joey Purp in the middle, the single aptly takes another page out of the hip-hop handbook by sampling “As Long As I’ve Got You” by The Charmels — which you’ll know from the Wu-Tang Clan’s “C.R.E.A.M.”

via The FADER:
“I wrote this song about feeling trapped in a relationship that I knew was no good for me,” she said. “It is about losing control of myself and the constant back and forth that I went through. I felt there was something haunting about the music in The Charmels “As Long As I’ve Got You,” so I wanted to sample and use it as [my] inspiration behind the song.”
