    Who was that singing the intro...it didn't sound like Tamar

    Ivory Williams

    Shantelle Compton it’s the Gladys Knight sample

  20. Lesia Nelson-Alexander

    🔥🔥

  21. Earth Angel

    I wish see would have left her nose alone! She was soo beautiful! She's giving me the scarecrow (from the Wizard Of Oz) vibes in this video... sigh... Nonetheless, I love the video and my Boo Lonnie B!!😍😘

  22. Sergio Jones

    😩🎤ADD A LIL SUUGAR lol

  23. END TIMEs Video Library

    I've gotta say, as a musician and producer, this is a mess.. Gladys Knight version is so stepped on it ruins the classic vibe. I would have rather heard a completely new version in a more modern sense or Tamar's take on the classic version slightly updated but this seemed so jumbled it made me disconnect almost immediately. Not hating.. just giving an honest opinion. This is an awesome classic song and deserves careful handling when it's redone.

    Jic James

    END TIMEs Video Library you either to young or to old...but you right it’s all over the place but that’s the perfection in it....
