My Sidepiece/My Sidepiece Reply

I wrote about this long last September and it is still hot!!  I can't believe this guy left home to be with his sidepiece.  He says you can tell his wife but he really didn't care because she wasn't going anywhere.  What?? As crazy as that may sound, it happens all of the time.  He even says he got it from his daddy because it's all in his genes.  Shame, shame, shame....but the melody on this song is awesome! Listen to the Louisiana Blues Brothas featuring Pokey.

Of course, there's the ladies' response to this cheater - it's also climbing up the charts. You left home to be with your sidepiece but don't think your woman is sitting at home twiddling her thumbs. They ask who's been making love to your woman while you're out making love?  Listen to Veronica Raelle, Lacee, and Ms. Portia.

There are a couple of other remix versions...

Vick Allen - "My Baby's Phone"

A beautiful ballad. Vick was talking to his wife on the phone and she tells him that she's in a meeting and will call him back.  She thought she had hung up the phone but she didn't disconnect!!  He hears a conversation that breaks his heart; the things she says to this other man.  So sad.

Bigg Robb - "Please Don't Judge Me"

For those who think southern soul is all about infidelity, here's a Bigg Robb song with a beautiful, heartfelt message.  He tells a couple of stories but there is one story about a woman who needed prayer and asked him for it.  He didn't hesitate, asked her what they needed to pray for, and took the time to pray for her.  (If you don't know, prayer is powerful!!!)  In his words to all of us, he doesn't want people to judge him because God isn't finished with him yet.  He may not be all that he wants to be but thanks to God he is better than what he used to be. He may not have it going on like this person or that person but he's learned to be thankful for what he has. That's a strong testament! Amen!

Kenne' Wayne - "Love Is Still Good"

Love is still good when you're stealing it.  Hmmm...

I love Kenne' Wayne - he's been singing for awhile now and is still making great music. Sounds like southern soul.

T J Hooker Taylor - "Just Because"

The legendary Johnnie Taylor had some kids who could sing!  His son, T. J.Hooker Taylor, did a beautiful remake of one of his dad's songs and it shows the deep love he had for his father.  This is a really good remake but I have to say that nothing compares to the original version by JT.

O. B. Buchana - "That's My Song"

You know how music can stir up so many memories and when a certain song comes on the radio, whew, it can blow you away!     O. B. tells the dj to stop the music because he’s tearing his heart apart. He's been stuck in the house ever since his woman left and finally goes out one night with his guys.  Imagine his surprise when he sees his woman in someone else's arms - dancing to their song. Uh oh, that hurts!!

J-Wonn - "I Need A Grown Woman"

J-Wonn is something else; he's an amazing up-and-coming artist.  He said that he's been through so much in his life and right now he needs a grown woman, that's all that he needs.  He needs a woman that's going to hold him down and never mess around.  They say that age ain't nothing but a number. Well, I agree to an extent, depends on what kind of numbers you're talking about!! lol  What do you think?
