Flashback Soul: Floetry Wants You to “Say Yes”

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 15 years since the talented British duo Floetry released their sultry single “Say Yes,” which was the second from their debut album Floetic and surprisingly their only track to break the Billboard Hot 100.  Written by lead singer Marsha Ambrosius and producer Andre Harris, the track was nominated in 2004 for a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group and was re-recorded by Natalie “The Floacist” Stewart, the other half of the band, for her second solo album Floetry Re:Birth

If ever you’ve longed for someone from afar, this track will resonate with you. From its rich opening piano chords to its mantra of “you make me so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so,” the song captures the essence of desire perfectly.  Enjoy.
