I had to post this video for the Lovers. Music Soulchild debuted in 2000 with his album Aijuswanaseing (I Just wanna Sing). This album is one of my favourite debuts of an artist – it had some great songs on there. Love really hit a personal note for many people due to its soulful and insightful lyrics such as:
Love, So many people use your name is vain
Love, Those that have faith in you sometimes go astray
Love, Though all the ups and downs, the joys and hurts
Love, For better or worse, I still will choose your first.
This was such a sweet song and video **sigh**. I agree that many people use the word Love in vain – using it in any situation where it may benefit them. We may all be guilty of doing so…or maybe not. But true love is no joke, so I guess it should be used wisely.
Some interesting facts about this song: Love was initially called Lord, but Musiq changed the title becasue he didn’t want it to be viewed as a Gospel song. This song was actually meant to be for Lauryn Hill. It spent 38 weeks on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop charts, peaking at #2; it also spent 22 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at #24.
