This song about the pining for a lover returning home is the fifth single from Revolutions Per Minute, the second studio album by American hip hop duo Reflection Eternal. Composed of rapper Talib Kweli and DJ/hip hop producer Hi-Tek, it is the twosome's follow-up to their 2000 collaborative debut Train of Thought.
The song features Estelle and was originally slated for the British R&B singer's Shine album. However the tune didn't make it onto the record and went unused for two years until finally landing on Revolutions Per Minute. Hi-Tek explained to MTV News: "I was working on joints for her album, and I was working on my third [solo] album and we cut two records. One for my album and [one for Estelle's], which we wanted to submit for the project, but it was too late for her album. It was sitting for two years, and I played it for Kweli, and he loved it. I didn't really think it was a record for our album, but we made it work. And it's a classic piece of music, so it should be heard rather than sitting in my crates."
Jay-Z's 2012 "Glory" features his daughter Blue Ivy Carter's cries and coos. At less than two days old, she became the youngest ever credited artist to feature on a Billboard chart when the song debuted on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at #74.
To the younger crowd, "A Little Less Conversation" is one of the most popular Elvis Presley songs. Peaking at #50 when it was released in 1968, it got new life in the '00s when it was used in the movies Lilo And Stitch and Ocean's Eleven.
When "Nothin' On You" reached #1 on the Hot 100, B.o.B became the first American act whose name is a palindrome to top the chart. The other two who did so prior to the Atlanta rapper were both Scandinavian groups - ABBA and A-Ha.
