25 Days of Aaliyah: "Got to Give It Up"

Day four!

In 1996 Aaliyah covered the original song sung by Marvin Gaye. With her signature flavor and style she revived the track by sampling Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" and adding Slick Rick.

A new remix of Aaliyah's "Got to Give It Up" (without Slick Rick's vocals) was included on her posthumous 2002 compilation album I Care 4 U. This video directed by Paul Hunter is a re-edit of the original.
