Raheem DeVaughn “Woman”
“Like there’s no you, no me, if there’s no us,
And if she ever hears an urgency
She’ll come in a rush
To the rescue, man you better find you a
Woman, woman, woman
Strong woman, woman, woman…”
Raheem has been a sucka for a good black woman from day one (see “You” and of course, “Customer”), and nothing changed when he dropped the song “Woman.” Not only a declaration that black men need to do what they can to find one, but also a shout out to the mothers, single and with help holding it down with that nurturing love. A merged thank you for staying up late waiting on phone calls, for turning the other cheek, yet snapping off when you need to, there’s no shame in a black woman’s game. And DeVaughn proves such.
