Your average fan doesn't care how the music gets made, only that the music gets made. Luckily, we aren't average fans. We care about the music, so we dig and research and investigate the stories behind some of our favorite songs, and in the process get our mind thoroughly blown. 

For example, did you know that Positive K's big hit, "I Got a Man", doesn't actually feature a female vocalist? That's Positive K saying the woman's part with his voice pitched up in the studio. Did you know that Aretha Franklin's epic women empowerment hit, "Respect", was originally written and sung by a man?

We partnered with the good folks at Green Label to give you even more mind-blowing music facts; if you're an average music fan don't even bother. But if you really care, you're going to want to check this one out.
