My Lover

Album: Take Not3s (2017)
Charted: 14

Songfacts®:

  • Blending elements of hip-hop, dancehall and R&B, a loved up Not3S recorded this romantic tune for the ladies.

    When you're walking away, you take my stresses away
    She so smart up in the brain, so great in the face
    And no one could ever replace


    Not3S has found the girl for him and he isn't holding back about telling her so.
  • The song's remix features a verse by London-based R&B singer-songwriter Mabel McVey, who is the daughter of recording artist Neneh Cherry and Massive Attack record producer Cameron McVey. Like Not3S, Mabel broke through in 2017; in her instance with the hit single "Finders Keepers."
  • The summery video was directed by Kirx. The clip celebrates the beauty of East Africa as we follow Not3S travelling across Zanzibar in search of an Instagram love interest.
