Differences

Album: The Life (2001)
Charted: 4
  • In an interview with Clayton Perry posted on Blogcritics Magazine, Ginuwine explained the background to this track: "That song was really during a time when I was going through a depressed state because of my dad and my mom had passed. We're writing a whole bunch of songs and what helped me out a lot was my wife – she wasn't my wife then but that's what helped me out. I said, "I'm going to write a song about her," and it happened to be a song that a lot of people wanted to sing to their wives when they were getting married. It's just one of those songs that will always be here. I'm just happy I'm the one that did it."
  • This is Ginuwine's best selling and top charting single to date in his career.
  • It's obvious Ginuwine is on top of the world in the Hype Williams-directed music video, which finds him singing in the attic of a house before performing among the clouds. Williams is known for directing hip-hop clips, but is also known to take on R&B ballads, like Miguel's "Sure Thing."
