10 of the Best Love Songs from 2011
3. How to Love (Lil Wayne)
See you had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart
Never really had luck, couldn’t never figure out
How to love, how to love
See you had a lot of moments that didn’t last forever
Now you in this corner tryna put it together
Anyone who knows me, knows that I think Lil Wayne, while talented, is severely overrated. But even I had to give it up on this one. My main complaint about the brotha is that he rarely says anything. There’s no substance behind 85 percent of his work but “How to Love” is certainly a break from tradition for him. He really tapped into issues so many women (and men) are facing. The lyrics in combination with a downright masterful video made this song a true work of art for me and quite a few other people.
