ABOUT THE SONG
- "One of the funny things I love about Jermaine Dupri is when I say something to him, he just runs with it," Mariah said. So at the beginning of "Love Story," Mariah told him that she wanted the beat to be hard, and told him, "Make this for the jeeps, not too soft." So when Dupri did his ad-libs at the beginning of the song before they mixed it, he says, "MC said, 'JD you gotta make it knock,' " and then adds a few hard beats, and goes, "You hear that?" It's an inside joke for the two of them, because while the song remains a ballad, it's "almost a rap record." "I think that's where our success comes from," she said, "because we understand each other on that level.” - MTV “MARIAH CAREY LEADS A TRACK-BY-TRACK TOUR OF E=MC2, WHICH SHE CALLS '100 PERCENT OF ME’ by Jennifer Vineyard, April 11, 2008
