You Must Love Me-Jay-Z

When Nas released Life is Good last week, suddenly everyone is ready to call him the greatest of all time once again.  It’s interesting to see people jump back on the ship they abandoned a decade ago.  Personally, I can’t complain.  I have always thought Nas is the greatest to ever do it, the greatest storyteller to ever grace the mic; however, in this Nas hysteria, people are starting to forget that Jay has spun his share of yarns.  People hear a song like (Nas’) “Daughters” or “Bye Baby” and say, “when has Jay ever put out something so real?  Sure Jay is dope, but Nas is really sharing a piece of his soul on this album."  True, Nas really opens up on this album, but let’s not forget a song like Jay-Z’s "You Must Love Me,” easily one of my top 10 “storytelling” songs of all time.


You Must Love Me ~ Rachel Chan

No one calls me beautiful like you
And i love how you say it to
Every word from you is filled with wonder
I wonder why you love me but you do

And i would be a fool to argue with you
Maybe id be wasting my time
You’ve given me your word
And based on what I’ve heard
You must love me
Really love me

No one knows me as deeply as you do
Still I’m the one you choose
Even though i prove I don’t deserve you
I don’t deserve the love you say is true

And i would be a fool to argue with you
Maybe id be wasting my time
You’ve given me your word
And based on what I’ve heard
You must love me
Really love me

And i would be a fool to argue with you
Maybe id be wasting my time
You’ve given me your word
And based on what ive heard
You must love me
Really love me

No one calls me beautiful like you
And i love how you say it toooo me <3
