The 100 Best Native Tongues Songs

96. A Tribe Called Quest "Find a Way" (1998)

Producer: The Ummah
Album: The Love Movement
Label: Jive

Find a Way samples liberally from Tribe friend DJ Towa Tei's (of Dee-Lite fame) "Technova," turning Luso-Brazilian lyrics about who-knows-what into a courtship ritual for a love-smitten would-be Romeo relegated to "friend status." This is the first single from The Love Movement, an album that was almost universally panned by critics and is almost always written off by longtime fans. For the brief period prior to the album's release however, this single seemed like a sign that the album would be a return to form.
