Whoops, this did annoy me 29 days ago:) It's on a Beyonce album so it's not a Luther + Beyonce track. Anyway I suspect she couldn't wait to sing with a soul legend. Love his voice on David Bowie's Young American's album.
Last.fm I'm playing this song straight from the CD album, and you tell me that the track is named incorrectly? Now I can't remember whether the tracks were named on my computer by Windows player or they came with the CD, but they read as follows "Beyoncé; Luther Vandross – The Closer I Get to You". So I would have thought it is more likely that LFM is wrong? Anyway superlative track.
