LL Cool J feat Boys 2 Men “Hey Lover”
This is an epic tail of a guy seeing that gal & giving chase only to find out they haven’t even met or spoken to each other. This song was the #BluePrint for every dude who ever wanted to talk to “her”, but couldn’t muster up the courage. Oh boy, have I been that “dude” so many times 😩😫….
Speaking of #BluePrint this song was the first of its kind, then about 10yrs later the concept was redone by S Dot Carter on “Excuse Me Miss” heard on #BluePrint2, which almost made the list, and still might. Not all the way done yet.
LL had it going in this one with the ultimate story telling setting the tone; “It was Harlem at the Rucker, I seen ya with ya man”. Then, “they caught eyes for minute and that was that”. He just knew he was gonna take her from her man that “was his mission”. Hatin ass LL just couldn’t take the loss lol. Talkin about, her man “drank too much and smoked too many blunts”, #hater lol…
Randomly he saw her other places like in the mall on the “pay phone about to make a call” (ha old school), damned near seemed like lightweight stalking by the Queens MC.
But at the end he completely bodied it by saying all the things he wanted to do like “tongue her down with French vanilla ice cream” and take her to “distant lands” was, and I quote, “a fantasy that won’t come true, we never even spoke and ya man swear he love you”. So, he kept all his feelings inside and kept his dream alive until the right time.
***Cue Boys 2 Men for the sultry hook*****
