A: That is not the song. I looked that song up on ITUNES and that was not the song playing in BROWN SUGAR as Dre walked into HOT 97 talking to Sid on the phone. I am looking for that song as well. The song was very soulful and sounded like a woman singing it. (thanks to E.L. Phrase, Camden NJ/Brooklyn NYadd more info
A: Yes it is that song, you probably heard the 30 second preview on iTunes halfway through the track when it sounds slightly different. The track in the film is in a different key compared to the original etc, check on youtube... The 2nd track of that scene is by Jaguar Wright "Self Love." (I know my neo soul music lol).
