Okay that was a good cry, now let's move to another memory....
I know hate is a strong word, but I hated Chante Moore. I couldn't stand her overly demure attitude or her all-I-want-to-do-is-please-my-man songs. Back in the day, she had me thinking, what woman really acts like this? I just wanted to gag when I heard songs like Precious and Because You're Mine. Years later in HS, it also didn't help that my man had the biggest crush on her, but then I married this same man and became his wife. (Insert wedding bells here.) I've soon learned that loving a brotha wasn't going to be Easy. I've had to deal with the mood swings, the "I-had-a-bad-day" days, the "I'm-horny-and-you're-not" nights, and everything else in between. (Oh yeah and let's not forget his mistress, the motorcycle) Now I know what Chante means when she sings lyrics like this:
Thought men were all the same
But I never gave up hope
And now my life has changed
Listen to me girls
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl
When Chante sang about having A Man, I understood her and I felt for my sistas who were dealing with the boys. And if these very same ladies would take their focus off all the 'dogs' and listen to some of what Chante has to say, (try these songs for instance: Bitter (although all that usage of 'nigga' in this song was annoying and unnecessary after a while) and Go Ahead With All That) they just might get over all the past hurt/pain and find a satisfying love on their own terms. Oh yeah, try this song when you want to kick your female swagga into overdrive... :-)
