Shiré - I Used To Lovher

Posted 8 years ago
Tags: Shiré
Producer:
Midi Mafia & Frank Dukes
Album:
Pickin Up the Pieces

Back in ‘94, a young rapper from Chicago, then known as Common Sense, released the single I Used To Love H.E.R., lamenting hip-hop’s decline using the metaphor of a broken relationship.  The song is considered one of Common’s all-time best.  Fourteen years later, a Baltimore songstress believes that true R&B is suffering the same fate.  Updating the classic ballad, Shiré laments the state of today’s music scene on I Used To Lovher.  Producers Midi Mafia and Frank Dukes piece together a heart-rending beat that could get the genre back on the right path.  As Shire’ begins Pickin’ Up The Pieces on her forthcoming debut album, expect her movement to grow, similar to Common’s over a decade ago.
