Released in 1999, “You Got Me” was released as a single from The Roots’ fourth studio album, Things Fall Apart.
The track was co-written by Jill Scott and features vocals by Erykah Badu and Eve. Jill Scott actually recorded vocals for the chorus and the bridge but was replaced by Badu’s recordings due to MCA records wanting a higher profile collaboration. At that time, Scott was only known in Philadelphia.
I like both versions, those two ladies are equally amazing. Check out the video below.
