In 2001, R&B singer Faith Evans released her third album Faithfully on Bad Boy records. I Love You was released after the debut single, You Gets No Love. In the video, a newly 50 pounds lighter, Faith sings about her Love in a revealing low-cut dress. This is such a great song and in my humble opinion, it solidified Faith as a major voice in the R&B world. If you didn’t feel her before this song (that would be me) you were feelin’ her after this song. Faith has a timeless voice; maybe she was born into the wrong generation. Too often Bad Boy would try to peg her as a Urban dance artist but I believe songs like this were her strong suit. And 2001 was one of the last great years in Urban music and videos.
My favourite line: “First time, I saw your face/ My heart just erased, all the guys I knew be-fore you walked into my life/ I was the type to never want for nothing” I’m such a sucka for love songs
