Calling

Album: The Way I See It (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Saadiq said on his website that this song with Spanish language lines and pronounced doo-wop flavor is, "a jump back to the music of the '50s." He added: "I wanted to make a track that would get the low riders. People talk about the division between Latinos and blacks but we all grew up together loving the same music. This song is a reminder of how we do when we get together."
