ABOUT THE SONG

  • “Remember that song ‘Sweetheart’ by Rainy Davis? It’s a remake of that. I was like, Jermaine, let’s just do a remake. I was thinking of the old songs I used to listen to when I was in school. It’s a really cute record. Young girls’ll like it the way I liked it when I was growing up.”

    • VIBE Magazine, November 1998 – Danyel Smith

  • “I chose the bonus tracks for various reasons - ‘Sweetheart’ - because I ain’t got one! Try that one on! Ha Ha”

    • #1s Liner Notes, 1998

  • [ed. Talking about the top 3 songs that make the soundtrack of your life]
    MC: Can you pick just three?

    SS: Umm, I have, I have. Like “Funkin’ 4 Jamaica,” I love that…

    MC: And I remade that song!

    SS: You sure did, honey! You know another one that I hold dear to my heart that you redid was Rainy Davis’ “Sweetheart.”

    MC: Rainy Davis! I love her!

    SS: What! Girl! When you did “Sweetheart”…

    MC: Do you know Val Young? ‘Cause I did “If You Should Ever Be Lonely” with Heartbreaker.

    SS: Buffalo, New York, yup. I told you, I’ve been there since we were babies together, coming up. I was coming up in radio, you was coming up in music. But every time you came out with a song, it resonated, because I grew up at the same time.
