Does this sample something? It sounds very familiar.

Wow... Deadwood was good, but this song is much better. I hope this is the next single (and given a decent video).

I think it samples "Africa" by Toto, at least a little bit, right?

I'm so addicted to this! it's classy, classic and damn catchy. Woke up with that damn chorus I'm my head this morning. This is the best song she's done in years :D

Toni can never do wrong for me. I wish her music was more appealing to general public.

Trying to figure this out too! It's reminding me of a song that im pretty sure I have in my library, but I cannot think of what song it is. Maybe a K. Michelle song? I came across this thread trying to find the song it samples. Anybody have any clue???
It's those first 3 notes right at the beginning of the song. Almost reminiscent of "Case of the Ex" by Mya but the song I'm thinking of is much more recent.

I might actually agree and I loved Deadwood. This is up there with her 90s material.

I love both 'Deadwood' and 'Long As I Live' but the latter has a more '90s feeling to it. Sounds more like classic Toni.
