Songfacts®:

  • An ode to his nine-months pregnant wife, Melissa Heholt, Jermaine Cole tells the love of his life how much she means to him:

    I wanna fold clothes for you
    I wanna make you feel good
    Baby I wanna do the right thing
    Feels so much better than the wrong thing


    The heavily pregnant Melissa is tired, and Cole wants to help her in any way he can. One of the ways he can show his care and affection is by helping with domestic chores like taking the washing out of the drier and folding the clothes.
  • Jermaine Cole first met Melissa Heholt in the mid-2000s, while attending St. John's University. They've been together ever since. Melissa has a M.S. in childhood education and founded her own event planning company, Statice Events. She is also the Executive Director of her husband's Dreamville Foundation.
