First Listen: Isaac Hayes' final recording, with Rhonda Thomas

Share this article

     Rhonda Thomas is a SoulTracks favorite, and in addition to her solo work she spent over a decade as a backing singer for Isaac Hayes. The legendary Mr. Hayes returned the favor in 2008, not long before he died, as he recorded a duet with Rhonda -- a hot, saucy remake of his classic "Do Your Thing." Unfortunately, the duet never saw the light of day.

    We just heard the song for the first time this week and we had to share it. Check out Rhonda and the great Mr. Hayes going back and forth on this great cut. And then tell us what you think!
