Album: Love Behind The Melody (2008)
Charted: 96


  • While rappers often see women as subservient sex objects, R&B singers will sometimes sing their praises, which is what DeVaughn is doing here, as he lets women of the world know that real men will love and appreciate them for who they are. >>

  • Love Behind The Melody's theme is "women in love." DeVaughn told the Baltimore Sun January 17, 2008: "This album is showing me more as the R&B hippie, neo-soul rock star. I'm singing about love - loving yourself, finding that mate, whatever the case may be."
  • Aretha Franklin is a fan of DeVaughn, and she sometimes performs this song live.
