This song was the first single from the 1997 album of the same name. It was produced by Sean "Puffy" Combs, who, at the time, was the go-to producer for hit songs. Combs' rap name used to be Puff Daddy, but he later became P. Diddy and then just Diddy. The song finds LL seducing a woman in a club with his quiet confidence. His edge is his sensitive side - this is the guy who did the first slow rap hit with "I Need Love
" back in 1987. Ten years later, he asks in "Phenomenon," "Do you really wanna thug or do ya want love?"
