I’ll Dip – Aretha Franklin
In 1998, Aretha Franklin was in the process of revamping her sound and career. You may remember she teamed up with Lauryn Hill for the smash hit “A Rose Is Still A Rose” (Hill wrote and produced the record entirely on her own.) The song was featured on the album bearing the same name. My daddy had this record and one of the songs that stood out, in addition to the single was the Dallas Austin written and produced “I’ll Dip.” This wasn’t Austin’s only contribution. He’s listed as the first producer of the project, along with Diddy, Jermaine Dupri, Lauryn Hill and Daryl Simmons.
