[SOHH highlights a hot record each week and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After Myko broke down his new "Okay, Okay" anthem, 112's Q. Parker descrambles "Show You How."]
My music is geared toward the women because I just believe there needs to be an R&B singer that's a crooner and caters to women. There are a few, but I don't think there are enough. No matter what song I make, I want to make sure people can relate.
The song "Show You How" came about as I was putting together my new album. It encompasses every aspect of the relationship. Through the good times, the bad times, it shows you all of those. We've all been in situations where you're witnessing a woman just settling in the relationship because she's comfortable.
You know that he ain't treating her right or, from a guy's perspective, she ain't treating him right. You just want to say, "If you give me the chance, I'll show you how to love. Stop settling for less and take a chance. If you take a chance, I'll show you how to be loved."
The idea came first. Whenever I get with a producer, I like to tell them what I want. I tell them the gist of what I want. I wanted to write a song that had a nice beat, very melodic and like I'm speaking to a girl.
If you listen to the words, you can tell I'm just having a conversation with this particular girl. Or from a girl's perspective, she's having this conversation with a man.
112 is an R&B quartet from Atlanta, Georgia. Formerly artists on Diddy's Bad Boy Records, the group signed to the Def Soul roster in 2002. They had great success in the late 1990s and early 2000s with hits such as "Only You", "Anywhere" and "Peaches & Cream". The group most notably won a Grammy in 1997 for Best Rap Performance by A Duo Or Group, for featuring in the song "I'll Be Missing You" with Puff Daddy and Faith Evans.
