“6 Foot 7 Foot” was meant to show Wayne hadn’t lost a step with his rapid fire delivery as well as put Cory Gunz on centerstage. “John” was the on-wax union of arguably the two current biggest names below the Mason-Dixon line, let alone Hip Hop. The Detail-produced “How To Love”? Now this is something totally different.
Coming straight from left field, Weezy’s third single uses this guitar inspired instrumental to lament on the story of women whose hearts have grown cold from several false starts. All while harmonizing, too. It’s clear Wayne wants to impact every radio station in the country, urban and pop, with this one. Time will tell if it replicates the success of “Lollipop,” but it’s obvious that he’s going to give it another shot at least.
On a related note, his MTV Unplugged show will air June 12 on MTV and online at 9 p.m.
