This for-the-ladies rap with a music-industry-as-romance metaphor features Fiasco's labelmate, the R&B singer Trey Songz. Previous Fiasco songs written to appeal to females include "Sunshine," "Paris, Tokyo" and "Go Baby."
The song was released on May 22, 2011 as the third single from Lasers. Fiasco said the song, "doesn't have any deep meaning behind it, and is for the chicks."
The music video was released on June 29 via MTV with model Tracey Thomas playing Lupe's love interest.
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
