Love Come Down

Album: J.E. Heartbreak 2 (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Penned by Brandon and Brian Casey of Jagged Edge and produced by R&B hitmaker Bryan-Michael Cox (Usher, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige), this song finds the quartet promising a lady: "I'm gonna do all I can... to make your love come down."

    Speaking of his and twin Brian's songwriting technique, Brandon Casey told Billboard magazine: "We write in a conversational way lyrically and try to sing in the way we would speak to a woman. That's probably the biggest secret ingredient: not being afraid to be naked emotionally. 'Yeah, I love the hell out of this woman' or 'Yeah, I hurt like hell.'"
  • The song samples the 1988 Al B. Sure track "Naturally Mine."
