It's Yours

Songfacts®:

  • In this song, Holiday tells a girl that both his body and heart can belong to her. Djbooth.net asked the R&B singer whether he's ever approached a girl in a club and offered his heart and body, saying "It's Yours." He replied: "No, I haven't tried the approach, and I think that's only because, for one, women don't believe us. So that's number one, and, number two, I don't think you really want to say that to somebody you just met in the club. Maybe a female that you've been dating for a while, and you guys are out together, that's probably a little more comfortable for me. But no, I haven't tried it. I'm sure it might work for somebody."
  • This was written by The CoStars (whose credits include Teairra Marie's "Make A Girl Feel"). Jasper Cameron of the StreetLove team produced it. Cameron's credits include Ciara and Christina Aguilera.
