Man Who Has Everything

Songfacts®:

  • Monica first met Shannon Brown in June 2010 when the Phoenix Suns basketball player starred as her love interest in the music video for the single "Love All Over Me." Within four months they'd got engaged and on November 22, 2010, the couple were married in a secret ceremony at their Los Angeles home. Monica pays tribute to her husband in this Rico Love produced cut. She explained to The Boombox why the song has a special meaning to her: "My husband used to always say, 'You are something so special to me. This type of love can't be bought.' When we talk about the things that we've experienced in life and why we're so special to one another, this song stood out most to me.

    'Man Who Has Everything,' it speaks volumes to the fact that a lot of people are defined by the things that they have and the things that they've obtained and the things that they've done and accomplished, but in a real relationship that's full of real love, none of that really matters. So, 'Man Who Has Everything' is definitely one of our favorites as a couple."
