Music News: What’s the story behind “I Get Lonely Too”…Drake Explains?!

Drake showed a softer side this week with the release of “I Get Lonely Too,” the first offering from his R&B mixtape ‘It’s Never Enough,’ on which he pays homage to TLC’s 1999 track “FanMail.” Drizzy told Rap-Up.com why he chose to cover the “Crazy, Sexy, Cool” trio.

According to the Young Money rapper, it wasn’t planned—inspiration unexpectedly struck while he was cruising around in Miami. “I was in the car and I had the iPod on shuffle, and I heard T-Boz’s voice come on and I was like, damn, I never noticed the lyrics to this song and how beautiful they were because it was an intro,” he revealed at the “So Kodak” launch event in New York City on Tuesday night.

Once his ears perked up, Drizzy knew it was the perfect way to introduce his melodic collection of tracks. “When I heard it, I was like, man, me and [producer Noah “40” Shebib] could do something with this, and TLC used this as the intro on their album, so I used it as the intro on my mixtape.”

Fans can get a taste of how ‘It’s Never Enough’, due later this year, is taking shape by vibing out to the seductive jam. “It’s track one and it’s a great song,” expressed Drake. “I love the words in it and I love how 40 flipped the beat, so I just decided to put it out and give people an idea of the direction the mixtape was going.”

According to Drake, witnessing friends’ relationships reminds him of what is missing from his life.

“I’m envious of friends of mine that have great committed relationships,” he said in an interview. “When people call home to check on their girl or they say, ‘I’m not going to go out tonight. I’m just going to spend the night with my girl.’ That hits me, man. I just don’t have that…And also, I’m not going to be the one to drag my own name through the dirt, so to be with a different woman every night is a terrible decision…If I can find a connection with somebody that can understand what goes on in this life — and when I say somebody who understands, I don’t mean a girl that understands that I’m going to be with other girls; I mean just a girl that’s supportive and makes it easy to exist and laugh. Laughing is a big thing. Conversation’s got to flow. We got to laugh at the same things.”

Drake – “I Get Lonely Too” Lyrics

[Drake – Verse 1]
Waited on you for so long
Too many days since January
I’m still sitting here alone
We shoulda did this already

kinda thought that you, forgot about me
but I wanna hit you back too say
just like you, I get lonely…

[Chorus]
Baby,
I could really get to know you
take my time and show you
don’t tell anybody what we do
when I get lonely

Take Me,

face to face, just you and me
with no rules, just like you

Touring It Up: Donell Jones Announces Tour & Drops New Album

R&B veteran Donell Jones’ newly-formed label ‘CandyMan’, was thrilled to announce the September 28th, 2010 release of his new studio album titled ‘LYRICS.’ The album was the long-awaited follow-up to ‘Journey Of A Gemini’ which included the hits, “I’m Gonna Be” and “Spend The Night.”

As those who tuned in for the R&B vet’s first feature, the soulfully apologetic Bad Boy, already know, Donell Jones isn’t just a skilled crooner; he’s also one hell of a smooth-talker. On his latest single, the Georgia native once again makes full use of his powers of persuasion, telling a hesitant female:

I know you’ve been hurt before, but you’ve never had a Love Like This.”

Over his own lush instrumental, featuring steamy keyboard riffs, slow-jam percussion and even a dash of harp, Jones showcases more of the soft vocals that charmed readers back in December of 2009. Though the singer takes a seemingly counterproductive detour into confessional territory around verse two:

I tried to hit every woman that I came in contact with out on the road / but I got that out of my system…”

May be honest, but it isn’t exactly confidence-inspiring, the finished product is plenty seductive enough to make up for a little over-sharing.

The new album will be Jones’ fifth offering to date. The new album is also set to include the first single, “Love Like This” which is already climbing the charts at Urban AC where it’s currently at #12 with a bullet, rapidly approaching Top 10.

Below is the schedule for his current tour dates:

September 28th Atlanta, GA
September 29th Chicago, IL
September 30th Milwaukee, WI
October 1st Bronx, NY
October 2nd Augusta, GA
October 4th New York, NY
October 5th and 6th Philadelphia, PA/Baltimore, MA/Washington, DC
October 9th Atlanta, GA
October 30th New York, NY
December 12th Dallas, TX

Music In Ya Ear!: Chris Brown – Apology

Video of the Day!: Chris Brown “Apology”

This song was recently leaked online and it sounds like he was apologizing to Rihanna, rumor has it it was written for her. It talks about what went down between them a few months back.

In the chorus, it’s like Chris is singing about the “girl” who texted him in the car, “She didn’t mean anything to me (nothing). She wasnt the one I see in my dreams (oh noo). Girl you know it aint true. If you believe (yeeah). Please except my apology (please except my apology). I didnt mean to hurt you girl.”

Just listen to it, it really sounds like an apology! The only bad thing about it, it’s just that it sounds like an old song, he sounds really young. The voice is very youthful.

Below are the lyrics to the song as well.

LYRICS
You don’t even call anymore
Its so different from the way it was before
Everyday I hear your pretty voice
I have no choice but to be all alone without you
There’s so many mistakes we make in love
Cause still I’m thinking this is something we can solve
I take all the blame for breaking your heart
But you cant let it tear us apart
Because

She didn’t mean anything to me (nothing)
She wasn’t the one I see in my dreams (oh noo)
Girl you know it ain’t true
If you believe (yeeah)
Please except my apology (please except my apology)
I didn’t mean to hurt you girl

I didn’t see myself settle down
But I knew from the first time you came around
From the moment I looked into your eyes
I never want to see you cry over me
But I knew if we got serious in love
We would never ever wanna break it up
I wasn’t ready for you until this day
Could you believe when I say that

x3
She didn’t mean anything to me (no she didn”t)
She wasnt the one I see in my dreams (no she was not)
Girl you know it ain’t true (yeeah)
If you believe
Please except my apology (baby I didn’t mean)
I didn’t mean to hurt you girl

Music In Ya Ear!: Beyonce’ – Broken Hearted Girl

Video of the Day!: Beyonce’ – Broken Hearted Girl

“I am loving this song!”

Beyonce broken hearted girl lyrics:
you’re everything i thought you never were and nothing like i thought you could have been
But still you lived inside of me
So tell me how is that

You’re the only one I wish I could forget
The only one I loved and not forgive
And though you’ve break my heart
You’re the only one

And though there are times when I hate you
Cause I can’t erase the times that you hurt me
And put tears on my face
And even now I hate you its pains me to say
I know I’ll be there at the end of the day

I don’t wanna be without you babe
I don’t want a broken heart
Don’t wanna to take breath without you babe
I don’t want to play that part
I know that I love you but let me just say
I don’t wanna love you in no kinder way, no no
I don’t want a broken heart
I don’t want to play the broken-hearted girl
No broken-hearted girl
I’m no broken-hearted girl

There’s something that I feel I need to say
But up ’til now I’ve always been afraid
That you would never come around
And still I wanna put this out
You say you got the most respect for me
But sometimes I feel your not deserving of me
And still you’re in my heart
But you’re the only one

And yes there are times when I hate you
But I don’t complain
Cause I’ve been afraid that you would walk away
Oh but now I don’t hate you I’m happy to say
That I will be there at the end of the day

I don’t wanna be without you babe
I don’t want a broken heart
Don’t wanna to take breath without you baby
I don’t want to play that part
I know that I love you but let me just say
I don’t wanna love you in no kinder way, no no
I don’t want a broken heart
I don’t want to play the broken-hearted girl
No, no, no broken-hearted girl

Now I’m at a place I thought I’d never be, ooh
I’m living in a world that’s all about you and me, mmm yeah
I ain’t got to be afraid, my broken heart is free
To spread my wings and fly away, away with you,
Yeah yeah yeah, oh ohh…

I don’t wanna be without my baby
I don’t want a broken heart
Don’t wanna to take breath without my baby
I don’t want to play that part
I know that I love you but let me just say
I don’t wanna love you in no kinder way, no no
I don’t want a broken heart
I don’t want to play the broken-hearted girl
No, no, no broken-hearted girl
Broken-hearted girl, no, no
No broken-hearted girl
No broken-hearted girl
