Hip Hop

Lady Marmalade by Patti Labelle, was a song sampled and it was performed by four other artist, Pink, Lil’ Kim, Christina Aguilara, and Mya. The sample is used mostly in a way of pop/rock/and rap form. When Patti Labelle created it it was oringinally a soul/r&b song. I think maybe the producers chose to sample this particular song because it identifies a strong message that stands out more so today than it did when it was created. And with using the artist that it did to perform it, it was sure to attract the audience for which the new version on it was targeting. Both versions of the song are talking about the same thing only difference is the modern version is more straight forward with its lyrics.
