Second Listen: "Woman to Woman" (Shirley Brown)

Had to bring this joint back as me and my homegirl J were grabbing a late dinner and drinks last night and the reference to this classic joint came up during our hilarious conversation.

Though often duplicated or reinterpreted by other artists such as the Jennifer Hudson and Fantasia duet "I'm His Only Woman," Brown's "Woman to Woman" is the original. Intended for Inez Foxx, who eventually turned it down, Brown's "Woman to Woman" peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot Soul Singles chart and is noted for being the last big hit for Stax Records.

With that said, Shirley Brown is probably best known for this classic old-school jam and you can take a second listen below to the classic "Woman to Woman"
