Lyn Collins

Real Name:
Gloria Lavern Collins
Profile:
b. 12th June 1948 in Lexington, Texas, U.S.A.
d. 13th March 2005 in Pasadena, California, U.S.A.
Her biggest solo hit was the James Brown-produced gospel-style song "Think (About It)", from her 1972 album of the same name on People Records. The song contains five breaks which have been widely sampled in hip-hop and drum and bass, most famously, the "Yeah! Woo!" and "It takes two to make a thing go right" loops in Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock's "It Takes Two" which is composed almost completely from samples of Think including a few lines of Collins' vocals
