R&B of the Week. How bad do you want her to stay?
Blackstreet-Don't Leave Me
Without a doubt one of my all-time favorite groups, Blackstreet was THE business when I was a kid. My favorite group member was Chauncey Black's ol' chocolate self. (lol) I can remember just laying around in my room with their CDs on repeat, just vibing out and meditating. "Don't Leave" is definitely up there in my "Top Ten" favorite songs of all time list. It's one of those songs that, no matter how many times I hear it over any period of time, will never EVER get old to me. Also, Blackstreet is one of those groups that I will ALWAYS be willing to pay to see.
I love "Don't Leave Me" for both the beauty in the music and in the lyrical content. I don't think any relationship can escape having at least one moment like the one talked about in this song. The depth of love.. how much it lifts and how much it hurts.. is no longer discussed as much in R&B music, ESPECIALLY in male R&B. Most male R&B artists just talk about the same things rappers talk about, and I think that's wack. Bring back the R&B I fell in love with!!
