If satin had a sound, this would be it. Chrisette Michele AMAZES on this track. Lately the use of samples in music have signified laziness and a lack of creativity on the part of some of these artists, but this is definitely NOT the case here. The O’Jays’ “Stairway to Heaven” track was already certified smooth many years ago and Chrisette Michele breaks her vocals down, builds them back up and flips them over to it– seemingly with no effort. “A Couple of Forevers” is right up there with the excellence that Luther Vandross gave us when he covered a song. Do yourself a favor and check it out.
