ABOUT THE SONG
- "Manuel Seal who works with Jermaine, he's the guy singing [Mariah bursts into song] "So Funkdafied" [the hit single by Jermaine Dupri protégée Da Brat] and Jermaine and I did those songs [Always Be My Baby & Long Ago] together. Manuel, sings and plays too and Jermaine does a lot of the programming drums and bass. I always felt that Jermaine had a really unique style. When I heard the tracks he did for Da Brat or Xscape or Kris Kross in the beginning, I always felt I could sing something over those. We actually did the tracks together so I think they had both of our vibes…. I like to do sadder things, too. One of the tracks Jermaine and I did, "Long Ago" is more down and minor and jazzy. I can't just work with someone and let them completely reinvent my sound. That's what remixers are for.” - Blues & Soul (UK) Issue: October 24, 1995 “Daydream Believer” by Jeff Lorez
