W/out a DOUBT - THIS was the hottest hit of the time & looked as if it evolve him far above New Edition. W/the rest of the group branching out on their own, the competition w/Bell, Biv, DeVoe set the stage for years of steady hits to come, but this song seemed in a league of its own, as this tune reveals. His future seemed certain, but as fate would have it, the lack of foundation solid enuff to keep Mr. Brown grounded proved his undoing. But the music... ah sweet still...

I never mean too, I do have little problem with trying to hold. It in n act stronger so then it all comes out in little bursts and ...you know it was only natural to turn away a little and I had my own issues that I'm incurring and $$ is all that's standing in the way and that's only temporary #webothknow #patience #houseofcard s

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 day. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
