ABOUT THE SONG
Mariah doesn't just refer to the oft-quoted line from "Full Metal Jacket" (and incorporated into urban music ever since, thanks to 2 Live Crew), she builds a whole song around it. "This is one of the last songs I wrote for this album," she said. "I thought, 'Let me just make this a carefree record. It's kind of a party record to me. It's just like not caring too much about anything else that's going on except you living in the moment," which goes on a "long time" in Mariah time. - MTV April 11, 2008 “MARIAH CAREY LEADS A TRACK-BY-TRACK TOUR OF E=MC2, WHICH SHE CALLS '100 PERCENT OF ME’ by Jennifer Vineyard
Frank Ski, V103: A little birdie told me, you may be working on Mariah Carey's new album.
DJ Toomp: Oh yes.
FS: 'Cause I know you and L.A. are tight, and L.A. Reid signed you, so this is Mariah Carey - that's his project, that's his baby.
DJ Toomp: It's an extreme dynamite of a song. It's called "Lovin' You Long Time". Right now we're definitely pushing for it to be the first single, a few people in the office are pushing for it also, so I'm just crossing my fingers that... I'm definitely on the album - first that was the hope. I was hoping I could make the album, now I'm hoping that it's released as first or second single. So I figure that's kind of powerful as far as you know, how I've been working on my career, just being known for Hip-Hop, and finally getting my first R&B placement on Mariah Carey, come on! You know what I mean? - V-103 Atlanta, GA Radio Interview with Frank Ski - February 9, 2008
