Question ID: 475274
I'm trying to find a cover/remix of the song California Dreaming that
I heard while at the bar in The Cheesecake Factory.  The cover/remix
had a very smooth "Sade" sound with a female vocalist (although it
almost certainly was not her).  I've looked around and there's lots of
remix/covers and none of them on iTunes is the one I heard.  I would
like to find the artist and where to buy; ideally I would like to be
able to hear a clip of the song to be sure it's the one I want.

Hello thomas67-ga,

Is it possible that the singer was Queen Latifah?  Although she is
best known as a rapper and recently an actress, on her most recent CD,
?The Dana Owens Album?, she *sings* pop, blues and soul standards. 
California Dreamin' is track #7.
The Dana Owens Album
Queen Latifah

Hello thomas67-ga,

I?m glad I was able to identify the singer for you.

California Dreamin' appears on Queen Latifah?s 2004 CD ?The Dana Owens
Album?.  Dana Owens is Queen Latifah?s real name.
The Dana Owens Album
Queen Latifah

For more information about Queen Latifah and ?The Dana Owens Album?,
see the following links:

Please let me know if you have any questions.


Search Strategy:

I searched for the song title ?California Dreaming?.   I
then scrolled through the list of performers of ?California Dreaming?
and ?California Dreamin?? for one that fit your description (?very
smooth "Sade" sound with a female vocalist?).  I was familiar with
Queen Latifah?s latest CD. When I saw her name, I thought she could be
a match so I listened to the clip.

There is also a song with the same name. It's a remix by DJ Sammy
(featuring Loona). You can sample it here:
. I love this one.
