“Luther and I met in the late 90s to work on a dance track called ‘Are You Using Me.’ We flowed together like melted butter, so we co-wrote and produced another song ‘When You’re A Woman.’ It was like class was in session watching Luther work his magic. This created unforgettable moments in my career.
It was truly an honor to work with the Great Luther Vandross.” – Louie Vega
