While the rest of the industry has grown over the past century, turning from live instrumentals to samples to EDM, Lee Fields & The Expressions have managed to keep their grasp firm on the R&B music they came into this business to make. Just because they're old-fashioned doesn't meant they can't keep an open mind, however. Blessing hip-hop producer Marco Polo with the rights to remix the opening track from their 2014 album Emma Jean, the soul legends open their sound up to a more contemporary demographic.
If you're feeling this remix, you owe it yourself to hear the entire project. Emma Jean is in stores now.
It's not the cash that got you feelin' spent
The day-to-day is like a whirlwind
Spending time trying to make some change
But everything seems to stay the same
You keep trying
But you just can't win
