Songfacts®:

  • Marsha Ambrosius' Friends & Lovers collection is an autobiography of her past relationships. "This album is about a love triangle turned into a hexagon," she explained to The Boombox. "It is about that one you always loved but he was unavailable. He never texted you back but you can't let him go, you want to work it out. Then there is another guy. He's your best friend. You cry on his shoulder and then one drunk night you sleep with him. What do you do then? Have you fallen for your best friend trying to get over the guy you really love? Then a third guy comes along but you can't really check for him because you are so caught up with the two other guys."

    "I take you through a journey of meeting a friend who becomes a lover and then both of us meet someone else," Ambrosius added. "There are so many emotional heart strings that make for great love-making music."
