Two Sides to a Story

Album: 100% Ginuwine (1999)

Songfacts®:

  • Much of 100% Ginuwine deals with the various dramas that can challenge a relationship. Billboard magazine asked the singer what was going on in his personal life at the time? He replied: "I was dating a lot of different girls [laughs]! You know, when you have a platform like we have you express those life situations and put them into song form for other people to appreciate. You become an open book when you're a writer and a singer because where else are you going to grab from? So everything on 100% is pretty much what I was going through at the time or wanted to go through."

    He continued: "'Two Sides to a Story,' for example, was a song I wrote because there were some girls saying this and that and the other thing about a girl I was seeing."
