Producer: D'Angelo, J Dilla (Uncredited)
Label: Cheeba Sound/Virgin
Although Jay Dee wasn't credited as a producer on D'Angelo's Voodoo, his sonic signature is all over the album. Recorded during the Soulquarian era at Electric Lady Studios, the groove, percussion and rhythm were all influenced by Dilla and his work with The Ummah. ?uestlove, who served as D'Angelo's co-pilot throughout the recording process, acknowledged Dilla's influence on the album's overall sound and later admitted that: “Jay Dee did the Lauryn track.”
The “Lauryn track" in question was “Feel Like Makin' Love,” which was initially supposed to feature Lauryn Hill. Although tapes were Fedexed back and forth between D'Angelo and Lauryn, the collabo was eventually aborted, thus becoming a D'Aneglo solo record. Insiders attest that some Lauryn Hill vocals are featured on the track. That's still up for debate—but whether or not Dilla played a big part in Voodoo is not.
