Lil Mo’s iLoveMe album came out on CD from on her independent label HoneyChild Entertainment back in 2011. This album’s production is a lot better and louder volume-wise than the Pain & Paper album was. Lil Mo is back to her 4 star self on this album! Songs like Take Me Away, Love Song, Movie, Higher, and iLoveMe with songstress/soul vocalist Tweet are highlight tracks. Every song on here is a banger!
iLoveMe features songstress and soul vocalist Tweet. Tweet lays down the smooth slow melody with her smooth soulful voice. iLoveMe is a Lil Mo and Tweet duet. The song iLoveMe raises awareness in self-love. The song iLoveMe is about self-love. Loving yourself for who you are. Lil Mo and Tweet take it to church on this one! iLoveMe is a love song of course.
The uprising of dawn begins with a piano solo at the beginning of iLoveMe. Beautiful job on the viola chorus in the background. The violins help accompany the viola. Lil Mo incorporates elements of rock laced into soul music on iLoveMe.
Lil Mo doesn’t know what self-love feels like. Lil Mo doesn’t where to begin. So she’ll start right here. Just when Lil Mo was about to give up, he pulled up to her heart. The man wants a bond with her. Something about him seemed so different to Lil Mo. Something that she never felt. It feels like she lost herself trying to find him. It feels like she’s living a lie just for him. So now it’s time to tell the truth. iLoveMe more than iLoveYou. Lil Mo finds out that she loves herself more than she loves you.
Tweet is next up. Tweet lays down the smooth slow melody with her smooth soulful voice.
She tired of walking the thin line and hitting walls of regret & sorrow. It’s better that they call it quits. Just when Tweet was about to give up, he pulled up to her heart. Sharing love with him is so innocent and heaven sent. (It feels like she forced herself trying to love him.) It feels like she’s living a lie just for him. So now it’s time to tell the truth. iLoveMe more than iLoveYou.
I’m tired of walking a thin line
And hitting walls of regret
It’s better that we call it quits
Think we need to stop right there
Just when I thought about giving up
When I was about to run on E
That’s when you pulled up to my heart
And said you wanna come and ride with me
And sharing love with you seemed so innocent
Even heaven sent, everything I ever dreamed
It feels like I lost myself tryna love you
It’s like I’m stretching the lie for truth
It’s time to turn tables
Because you have changed. Lil Mo no longer gives to you pain. Love remains here with Lil Mo. (Love remains here with me.) She made it through the pain and she finally sees clearly. So clearly. Lil Mo finds out that she loves herself more than she loves you.
Because you’ve changed, I no longer give to you
Love remains here with me, here with me, here with me
And I made it through the pain and now I
Finally see, so clearly, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Whoa, I love me so much more than I love you
More than I love you, As much as I wanted you, needed to love me more
I love me more than I love you
More than you, more than I love you
I know it may sound crazy, more than I love you
Cause you’re a good man, just not good for me
It’ my apology, I gotta return immediately
Don’t worry about the house, you can have it
Don’t worry about the cars, you can drive them
I’ll got get another one, because I got it
Lil Mo talks about the kind of love people want on the song This Love.
There ain’t nothing better than this right here. Lil Mo tries but she can’t get through the way she feels. She is stuck right here with her chest torn open. Her heart has been stolen. And she ain’t ever been the type to fall in love.This the kind of love make you want it all. But he is like a habit that she can’t give up. It feels like she gets a fix whenever they touch. This the kind of love people dream of and the kind of love people want. This type of love will take you to the top and will catch you if you fall. They all want something like this love.
He is her secret she tries to hide but her heart won’t let her. This love is sickening but she is so addicted. He is the only one who can give it to her just how she needs it. Nothing is missing because he completed her. Lil Mo is falling for him and can’t get up. There ain’t no denying it. This is the kind of love that people dream of.
Lyrics to the song explain how.
There ain’t nothing better than this right here
I tried, but I can’t control the way I feel
Now I’m stuck right here, with my chest torn open
My heart’s been stolen
And I ain’t never been the type to fall in love
But you’re like a habit that I can’t give up
Feels like I get a fix whenever we touch
This drug is sickening, but I’m so addicted
And it ain’t no denying
This the kind of love make you want it all
Take you to the top, and catch you if you fall
We got that kind of love people dream of
And they all want something like this love
This love, this love, and they all want something like this love
This love, this love, and they all want something like
And they all want something like
On The Floor is an ode to ladies in the club and to the dancers outside. Dancers will love dancing to the track as the bpm is perfect for such dancing to. On The Floor is a song that makes you want to move and groove. The go-go dance sound from Baltimore is perfect for this track.
On The Floor has that Baltimore go-go dance sound to it with usage of the new school soul. On The Floor is dedicated to ladies up in the club. The beats are quite hyphy. One can wonder if Lil Mo or the producer was influenced by the Bay Area hyphy sound when it came to music production.
Lil Mo’s lyrics and ad-libbing is super superb. Fatman Scoop does his usual annoying chanting in the background which ruins the whole song of course. But that’s what he does best and what he is internationally know for. Take Missy Elliott – Loose Control (feat. Batman Scoop and Ciara) for instance.
Perfect Man is about how Lil Mo is looking for the perfect man to be her wife. Lil Mo is looking for “the one” exactly for her. She is addicted to a man’s love. Lil Mo is looking for someone to love and hold on to. She’s looking for someone she can trust. But she has not someone for herself truly for her. She wonders if she’ll ever be complete.The perfect man for Lil Mo is someone who protects you from nightmares and the one that to call went in trouble. The type of man who holds you in your sleep and tells you that you’re pretty.
The lyrics explain how he took her to a higher level of love.
I’m so lucky to be a part, of this someone
His love it takes me higher, than a bird it could ever fly up
I am so caught up, I would never leave him around someone
Who can see the things I see in him
Love Song has that nostalgic childhood memories/playful mood feeling to it. It feels as if you are taking a walk down memory lane when listening to Love Song. The beats are on point and the production is extremely loud as the volume for some reason has been turned up very high. Love Song is, well, obviously a love song of course.
I rate this album 4/5****!!
