Last Chance by Ginuwine

Album: A Man's ThoughtsReleased: 2009Charted:
63
  • On this song, Ginuwine sings about trying to save a relationship. Ginuwine commented that this song "reflects the maturity of my personal growth over the past few years."
  • Ginuwine reunited with Bryan-Michael Cox, the man who produced most of his 2003 album The Senior, on this song.
  • VH1 reality star/singer Ray J, actor Tyrese Gibson, comedian Alex Thomas and fashion designer and actress Lisa Raye all make appearances in the song's music video.
  • This was the first single to be released American R&B singer Ginuwine's sixth studio album, A Man's Thoughts.
  • The American songwriter and record producer Adonis Shropshire ("My Boo) wrote this song.
  • In an interview with djbooth.net, the interviewer told Ginuwine that Michael Jordan had his best basket in 1991, yet Ginuwine sings: "If I only have one shot to win, then call me Jordan, fourth quarter in '92." The R&B singer responded: "You did your homework! But, you know, what I was actually talkin' about was the game that he played when he was real, real, real sick - it wasn't really about the most points he scored, it was about how he still went through adversity, facing adversity he played through it and still came out a champion, still came out a winner. So that's more so what it was about."
  • In an interview with Clayton Perry posted on Blogcritics Magazine Ginuwine said that this song "is significant for many reasons." He explained: "When I come up with names of songs on a CD, it might actually mean more than what it's actually talking about. In this one, it really signified how I feel about the game and how I feel about myself in the game: If I don't do it right this time, this is my last chance. Another reason was because it was to me a hit done by Bryan-Michael Cox and written by Adonis. When I did it the first day, I knew that there was something special about that song. I still feel that regardless of how much success it has. In my heart I just felt that it was a special song. I always believed that if you're going to sell a song, you should be able to perform it and believe in it. That's a song that I can perform and believe in. People will feel that when they hear me sing it and see me perform it. For me, it is a smash and that's pretty much why I picked it."
  • Ginuwine explained to Clayton Perry how he processed the album: "Processing this album from the beginning was more of just going in there and letting everything come to me, as it has throughout my career. With every CD, I knew sometime in the middle or towards the end I will come up with the name -- which happened. I didn't go in and say, 'Okay, the name of this CD is going to be A Man's Thoughts.' We've done over 40 songs and every song I started pulling out to make the CD started reflecting a man's thoughts, how we think – things that women don't know. This CD will – in some shape, sort or fashion – will tell them the ways that we think sometimes, not in all situations but in some. A Man's Thoughts just fit. I was looking at a lot of the titles and I was like, 'Wow, A Man's Thoughts would be hot for this.' I came up with like four, to tell you the truth, but that one stuck out. I even wrote all four on a piece of paper – it might just be three, I don't remember – and showed them to some of the people that were at the studio. I said, 'Don't think too much about what you're looking at. Just tell me what pops out at you.' 95% of the people picked A Man's Thoughts – there's just something about that name."
