Look At Me, Look At U


When I first heard this song I dismissed it as Kenng G-style smooth jazz. But after hearing it a bunch of times when I played the album through, it got stuck in my head. Now I absolutely love it.

All of the lyrics are good, but there's something about the way he sings the opening to the second verse that I find irresistable. I could listen to that part on an endless loop:

"How can U not know, Standing over there like a Nefertiti, or the queen, Dido"

There's an old thread on this song from way back with HNR 2 was released. It was short, but all of the reviews were very positive. What do people think of it now, after having heard if for a number of years? Has it held up?

A great song on a really special album IMO. Would have love to see him play this and Revelations in concert.

1 over Jordan...the greatest since
