Yasamin Summers is bij ons beter bekend onder haar artiestennaam Yazz.


Na een aantal jaar als model en als stylist van George Michael gewerkt te hebben, scoorde ze samen met de band Coldcut in 1988 haar eerste grote hit met het nummer Doctorin' The House. Onder de naam Yazz & The Plastic Population scoorde ze met het nummer The Only Way Is Up een nummer 1-hit in onder meer Nederland en Groot-Brittannië. Na dit nummer veranderde zij de naam van de groep in Yazz. Met Yazz scoorde ze nog enkele hits, waaronder Stand Up For Your Love Rights en Fine Time.


Na een tijdelijk pauze maakte ze in 1993 haar comeback door samen met de reggaegroep Aswad een cover op te nemen van de hit How Long (Ace). Het werd geen succes, net zomin als de singles die Yazz daarna nog heeft uitgebracht.


Songtekst

Stand up for your love rights
Stand up for your love rights
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it

Mmm, now don't be afraid
Don't let things stand in your way
Now you've reached a time in your life
When you just can't take no more

Are you ready to leave
'Cause you can no longer breathe
You can't hide or disguise what it is
That you want to change

Well
Don't hold back
Make up your mind
Don't hold back

Stand up for your love rights
And don't you feel ashamed
Stand up for your love rights
And do it, do it, do it, do it

Mmm, now don't take what you don't want
Just take what you need
It's your right, don't be frightened to fight it
Take your time to choose, yeah

When you're ready to leave
Make up your mind and believe
Don't you run from the truth, it's no use
'Cause it's all you'll need

Don't hold back
Make up your mind
Don't hold back

Stand up for your love rights
And don't you feel ashamed
Stand up for your love rights, hey, hey
And do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it

So I say everybody has a right to love
And everybody has a right, just like you have the right to freedom
Everybody has a right to cry, everybody has a right to love
And I say, and you know, make sure you
Stand up for your love rights and enjoy it

Stand up for your love rights and enjoy it
Stand up for your love rights and enjoy it
Stand up for your love rights, yeah
Stand up for your love rights, yeah
Stand up for your love rights (Yeah)

Stand up for your love rights, oooh!
And don't you feel afraid
Stand up for your love rights, hey, hey
And do it, do it, do it, do it

Stand up for your love rights, oooh!
And don't you feel ashamed
Stand up for your love rights
And do it, do it, do it, do it

Hey, I'm talkin' to you, hey
I'm talkin' to you, yeah
Say, don't let nobody once call you
Don't let nobody tell you what to do

I say stand up!
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on!

(Love rights)

Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it
