Vega Records has released a new, previously unreleased gem from the mighty soul of Loleatta Holloway.
“Can’t Let You Go” was apparently one of the final recordings Loleatta Holloway made before her passing in 2011. Written and produced by Yvonne Turner, “Can’t Let You Go” is a chill, percussive House track with a hook that will slap you silly, glorious live horns and a rich, breathy vocal from the Queen herself.
“Loleatta Holloway was one of the most dynamic vocalists of our time,” says Yvonne Turner. “She was blessed with the gift of song and her energy was electric! Loleatta’s passion and artistry is on full display as she masterfully interprets a lyric then delivers her signature adlibs, which never disappoint. To describe her in a few words, Loleatta Holloway was the truth… my friend… extraordinary!”
Adds Louie Vega, “Loleatta Holloway has had a huge impact in my life as a DJ, producer, and clubber. She touched me in many ways through my music-making and even style of DJing; to this day, I still play many of her songs and acapellas. This is just our little way of saying thank you so much for what you’ve done for so many lives with your beautiful voice, you’ve affected us all!!!”
