“Black pathology is big business. Two-thirds of teenage mothers are white, two-thirds of welfare recipients are white and white youth commit most of the crime in this country.”

Had this song stuck in my head all morning… “Then cc every girl, that I’d see see round town…”

“The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Dataset (TASTD) confirms that, of the estimated twelve million Africans who arrived alive in the Americas, approximately four million (one in three) were women.”

“Let’s face it. I am a marked woman, but not everybody knows my name. “Peaches” and “Brown Sugar,” “Sapphire” and “Earth Mother,” “Aunty,” Granny,” God’s Holy Fool,” and “Miss Ebony First,” or “Black Woman at the Podium”: I describe a locus of confounded identities, a meeting ground of investments and privations in the national treasury of rhetorical wealth. My country needs me, and if I were not here, I would have to be invented.”

After the song’s release in the United States, “Loverboy” stalled on the Billboard Hot 100. The song reached a peak of number two on the Hot 100, though failing top the chart due to weak radio airplay. Though finishing as the best-selling song of 2001 in the United States, “Loverboy” became Carey’s first lead single to not reach number one. 

Celebrating 13 years of Loverboy!
