"Feel Like Makin' Love" is a song composed by singer-songwriter Eugene McDaniels, and recorded originally by soul singer-songwriter Roberta Flack. The song has been covered by several R&B and jazz artists.
"Feel Like Makin' Love" was covered by American R&B and neo soul musician D'Angelo for his second studio album Voodoo (2000). It was released April 8, 2000, on Virgin Records as the album's fifth and last single. His cover version features a quiet storm sound and heavy use of multi-tracking for vocals. It was initially planned as a duet with R&B singer Lauryn Hill. Although tapes were sent via FedEx between the two, the collaboration between D'Angelo and Hill was aborted and the song was instead recorded solo. According to producer and drummer Questlove, the duet failed to materialize due to "too many middle men.... I don't think Lauryn and D ever talked face-to-face." Mistakenly, some critics who later reviewed the album's track assumed that Lauryn Hill's vocals are present in the recording.
According to Questlove's review of Voodoo at Okayplayer, the song's production was also managed by late hip hop producer J Dilla, as Questlove stated "jay dee did the lauryn track". Dilla, however, did not receive an official credit for the song. As a single, "Feel Like Makin' Love" was Voodoo 's least successful, as it only reached #109 on the BillboardHot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart.
Paul Mauriat featured an orchestral version of the song on his 1987 album Love Is Blue. In 1996, jazz guitarist Larry Coryell covered it on his album "Sketches of Coryell".
Lumidee covered it in her 2007 album, Unexpected, and released it as a single, peaking at #90 on the Hot 100.
Monty Alexander recorded a jazz quartet version of the song in October 1974, released then on 'Live and Sunshine', and re-released in 2007 on 'Alexander The Great - Monty Swings On MPS'. The recording is with Ernest Ranglin (guitar), Eberhard Weber (b), and Kenny Clare (drums). This same version is also featured on Ranglin's 1976 album "Ranglypso".
Junior Jack sampled the chorus in his single "Luv 2 U".
