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.
