Brian McKnight Shares The Scandalous Truth Behind New Single
by Ife Oshun ·
Brian McKnight’s latest single, “Used To Be My Girl” tells the story of a guy playing “big dawg” towards a dude seeing his ex-lady friend.
In the song, McKnight tells dude: “Go ‘head, playboy do your thing. Don’t be mad if she calls my name.”
In a recent conversation with me, the sexy, babymaking music maker exposed the real story behind the tune.
“This girl wasn’t necessarily my girlfriend.. had told this guy that she used to be with me… but she never thought we’d all be in the same place at the same time…” Listen
The veteran artist also told us who’s at the top of his list for up-and-coming R&B talent.
“I really don’t listen to a lot of music to be honest with you,” he confessed. “I watch a lot of television and it’s mostly sports. But definitely Ne-Yo and Chris Brown would be at the top of that list.”
Check out the complete audio interview, where McKnight chats candidly about his new album, lovelife, future collaboration plans, and more.
