So…after Auntie Patti came through and shut down the BET Awards last Sunday performing with Tamar Braxton and K. Michelle. I had to go deep into the vault for the My Mama & Dem Music selection of the week, to pull out one of my favorite songs by Auntie Patti. That song is If You Don’t Know Me By Now from her 1985 album Patti. From top to bottom this song is magical. Auntie drops so many gems in this song. My favorite part of the song is the middle part where Patti talks to the audience in a way only see can! The only person that can come close to Patti’s stage presence is Fantasia.
All I have to say is, “10 Long Years…” Go ahead, take a listen below and get your lesson:
