Me Love

Album: Sean Kingston (2007)
Charted: 32 14

Songfacts®:

  • This samples Led Zeppelin's cod reggae track "D'yer Maker" from their 1973 album Houses Of The Holy. It is only the second time Led Zeppelin have approved a sample. The Jamaican-American pop singer was permitted to borrow a few notes of this song in exchange for granting the band an ownership stake in the copyright.

  • Drew from Birmingham, AlFunny to see what two songs got sampled/interpolated in this one, as the first time I heard "D'yer Mak'er" by Led Zep (since I had by then forgotten any lyrics to "Red Red Wine" by UB40 by then), I wondered whether it was "Red Red Wine" in an earlier version. I guess I'm not the only one who, hearing the one, thinks of the other. Apparently so does Sean Kingston....
  • Carlota from Ankara, TurkeyI am upset that Sean Kingston used the beginning of D'yer Mak'er for this song. Nothing can compare to the works of Led Zeppelin. Well, I am glad that Sean Kingston did not sing the whole song.
