Jocelyn Brown – Love’s Gonna Get You
Published: 5 years ago
“Love’s Gonna Get You” is a 1985 dance single by Jocelyn Brown, a singer who had sung with the groups Salsoul Orchestra and Inner Life. The single was the first of four that Brown took to number one on the U.S. dance chart. It also reached number thirty-eight on the R&B singles chart, becoming her second R&B top 40 hit as a solo artist.
One particular line in the song, “I’ve got the power!” became particularly prominent in the mainstream when it was sampled (without permission) by the hip hop/dance group, Snap! on their smash hit, “The Power.”
In addition, yet another line from the song, “Why waste your time, you know you’re gonna be mine,” was sampled by Bizarre Inc and Angie Brown’s hit “I’m Gonna Get You,” which was a number-one dance hit in 1993, and was frequently played on dance radio in the 1990s.
The exact same line was later used by Michael Mind for his Eurodance remix of (Bizarre’s) “I’m Gonna Get You”.
In 1991, Moby sampled a portion of the song for his hit single “Go”. The sample remains uncredited.
