This duet with Charlie Wilson finds Ambrosius addressing what it feels like to bid farewell to fallen loved ones. "This is about me missing my grandmother and my aunt to the point where it hindered how I carried on my day," she said. "I lost my grandmother in 2003. I lost my Aunt way too suddenly to cancer and to watch her deteriorate before my eyes made me look at what is important."
"Music became my importance," Ambrosius continued." I felt guilty for that and I know that's what they would have wanted for me. I had no choice, but to keep living. I'm out here trying to get this money so we can get to Disney World. Everyone is rooting for me and wishing me well and there's me not being able to be by their side. All the happiness this money can't buy, I wanna spend all my time with you."
"The Night Chicago Died" was written and recorded by the British group Paper Lace. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
