Sharissa: No Half Steppin' (Remixes) (Promo CDM) (Motown, 2002)

With a sound and style similar to Mary J. Blige, Sharissa Dawes time on the music scene was unfortunately a short one but here are promo-only mixes of her only hit featuring Busta Rhymes. I brought this hoping for the remix that sampled Blind Alley by The Emotions (and incorporated parts of Big Daddy Kane's 1988 song of the same name) but unfortunately the main mix here is just Busta rapping over the original track...After some research, I found out that the track I was looking for was actually done during a live radio appearance and was subsequently pressed onto white label vinyl along with another version that used the instrumental to De Barge's Stay With Me...

Produced by the Trackmasters.
