This song was the debut single from American RnB songstress Amerie who released it back in 2002. She would of course go on to put a fresh spin on the hip hop soul formula with her producer Rich Harrison who often laced her with massive hip hop styled breakbeats to go along with her passionate vocals. One of the best examples of this is her biggest hit “1 Thing” from her second album “Touch”.
In its original incarnation “Why Dont We Fall In Love” was a mellow mid tempo RnB song fairly typical for it’s time. However, it was recently remixed by the 20 year old Canadian producer, Kaytranada, who has been making a bit of a name for himself lately creating RnB-styled bootleg remixes from artists such as Missy Elliot, Janet Jackson, Danny Brown, TLC, and others.
This time he brilliantly flips the original turning it into a housey electro funk jam. Pretty much tailor made for the club.
