“Lovin’ You” by Minnie Riperton

In this week's episode, we embark on a journey through the melodic landscape of Minnie Riperton's unforgettable 1975 hit "Lovin' You," where every note carries the essence of her unparalleled vocal mastery. While the song's presence in countless movies, TV shows, and commercials keeps it firmly in the public consciousness, facets of the life of the woman behind it may be surprising. More than a singer, Minnie was a mother, and her heartbreaking departure from this world came way too early. From collaborations with Stevie Wonder to an unforgettable lion attack, we explore Riperton's musical legacy, where every "la la la la la" resonates with timeless allure and poignant significance.
