I'm so saddened by the loss of a beautiful soul, DMX! I remember when we recorded together, he and his wife had a room full of roses and a beautiful necklace waiting for me. And he was always so sweet! Sending my love and prayers to all of his family and loved ones! ❤
Half-a-century after hitting number one, Patti Labelle’s ground-breaking single is getting an even bigger honor.
@JimAxelrod has more on the hit song by a trailblazing group that was chosen to be preserved in the Library of Congress.
The trio Labelle's 1974 single "Lady Marmalade" is a French-infused dance track inspired by the red-light district in New Orleans. The hit song was added to the National Recording Registry today. #NatRecRegistry
25 recordings, including Janet Jackson’s "Rhythm Nation 1814" and Kermit the Frog’s "The Rainbow Connection," have been designated by the Library of Congress as audio treasures worthy of preservation. nyti.ms/3d1Q84j
