Here We Go
Love Lives Forever
Although she died aged on 31, Minnie Riperton’s music catalog was quite extensive & admired. It contains numerous heavily used samples, but this particular track ‘Here We Go’ isn’t in that category. It’s a very mellow string (probably harp) sample & it has the vocals isolated. Additional vocals on this track itself are supplied by Peabo Bryson.
To my recollection this track was first sampled in 1995. Noteworthy users include: A rapper/producer from a Bronx collective & a collaboration by two allied solo wordsmiths.
