Final Warning/Interlude

Album: 100% Ginuwine (1999)

Songfacts®:

  • This duet with Aaliyah was the only track on 100% Ginuwine with a featured guest. Ginuwine told Billboard magazine: "I was never really into doing features, but if I was going to do one it was going to be with her. We had the same management team; were under the same umbrella."

    "I remember that day we were just having fun and playing around like we usually would do," he continued. "We did the song in like an hour, but we kept going all day because we were just talking and joking. I'll never forget that day. I'm really lucky that I got to have her on my CD and that that will live on forever. I'll always be grateful for that."

    "I actually wrote 'Miss You' for her back then," Ginuwine added. "It didn't get put on her next album, but after she passed it got released on the compilation album [I Care 4 U]. I was really happy about that."
