Song Description

An R&B song about not being R&B

Story Behind the Song

R&B is all about love and sex, relationships, but is it possible to write an R&B song that talks about something else? Or does that change the genre entirely?

Lyrics

Another R + B

Chorus
I don?t wanna be another R + B novelty
I don?t wanna be thrown into that category
I don?t wanna be just another black face you see
I wanna be more than ordinary
I wanna legacy to follow me I wanna be free

When you hear my songs I want you to recognize
That I am nothing like all of those other guys
Everything they play on popular radio
They?re there for a little while, but then they have to go
Whatever happened to those days before the cars would bounce
When a song would grab your heart and squeeze out every ounce
Not thinking ?bout dated only want some originality
To come out of the streets, hey it might as well be me

Chorus

Topics that we hear today
Love, sex, baby mommas, mackin? feenin? flossin?, parties
It?s that same shit different day
I?m tired of that same ol? I wanna mix it up like
Remember Marvin Gaye?
He used to write about ecology and folks would eat it up
Whose gonna be a man? Whose gonna take a stand
And stop with all of these games
Produce something that lasts

Chorus

I?m not saying material things ain?t important to me
But in my opinion we spend too much time on the mundane
So when our children grow up to be adults
Without any sense of right and wrong
We can look back on how they were raised
Who?s going to be to blame?

Let?s talk about something else
All we think about is how we?re gonna get paid
And everything is predicated on how we?re gonna get laid
And I?m sick of it, sick of it all
I wanna say something else
