It is the first day of summer and after 5 p.m., it is 84 degrees right now. So what better time to have "Summertime" by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince as the song for #FlashbackFriday!

The song reached number #1 on the Billboard R&B charts but only #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 when it was released on June 20th, 1991

The song contains a loop of "Summertime Madness" by Kool & The Gang released in 1794.

The song did win Jeff & Will a Grammy for best rap performance by a duo or group in 1992.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Time to blast this along with "Blurred Lines" this weekend...

Scarlett Johansson teamed with Massive Attack frontman 3D to cover "Summertime" by George Gershwin. The actress has tried music before and this cover is quite good.

If we did not tell you it was Scarlett Johansson, you most likely would not know. It does have that classic Massive Attack sound however. She actually covered the song before on a compilation album "Unexpected Dreams-Songs From The Stars" back in 2006.

According to NME, 'Summertime' is taken from the soundtrack to director Everardo Valerio Gout's upcoming Spanish-language thriller Days Of Grace. The film is due for release in July in the UK and stars Carlos Bardem, younger brother of Javier Bardem.  Check out the song below;

Other artists on the soundtrack include Nick Cave and regular collaborator Warren Ellis, who feature on a number of tracks, and Trent Reznor's soundtrack collaborator Atticus Ross, who has worked with Japanese composer Shigeru Umebayashi.

Johannson released an album in 2009 entitled "Break Up" which was made with Pete Yorn.  The "Days Of Grace" movie trailer is below.-DocFB
