Sample Saturday: Wale’s Change Up x Jean Terrell

Wale dropped some new music on Christmas Eve – the mixtape Folarin. The tape features guests like his MMG boss Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, French Montana, Trinidad James, Scarface and others.

Production was just as varied and found Wale rapping over original beats by Beat Billionaire, Jake One, Danny! and even Diplo.

LG produced the soulful track 2, “Change Up” which has Wale promising that he’ll never change

The Sample

The sample comes via Jean Terrell singing “the last thing I’ll ever do is change up on you” from a track by the same name, “Change Up” from her 1978 album I Had To Fall In Love.

If her voice sounds familiar or you thought the sample was from somewhere else, it’s probably because she was the lead singer of The Supremes after Diana Ross’ departure.
