"Covers, Samples, Reworks and Answer Songs"

In honor of the rainy weather that we have been having in June in New York City, this C.R.S.A. edition will feature "I Can't Stand the Rain."

I Can't Stand the Rain

Written and first recorded by Ann Peebles in 1973, it became her biggest hit reaching #6 on R&B charts and #38 on Pop charts. Since then, the sing has been covered by several artists, including a disco version by the group Eruption in 1978 and on Seal's 2008 album Soul. Tina Turner recorded the most famous cover version in 1984 for her album Private Dancer. Missy Elliot's debut single "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" from 1997, samples the song and she also uses the chorus as the chorus for her song.
