In an email message dated August 1st, 2004, and signed 'Chelsea', Mtndew131 identified the singer in #71 as Aaliyah (1979-2001), the song title being 'Don't worry'.
Chelsea wrote: "71 also contains a fragment of Aaliyah's song 'Are you that somebody?'" Both titles appear on the album I care 4 You, posthumously released in 2002. Aaliyah died in a plane crash on the Bahamas in august 2001.

One side: pop/disco, continuing for a while on the other side, before somewhere in the middle of a track (hit 'record') giving way to arabic raï music (identified by Miryam Aroua as being by Khaled; my iPhone's Shazam (february 16th, 2010) recognized it more precisely as Khaled's track 'Liah liah').
