Throwback: Faith Evans-You Used To Love Me

Faith Evans’ “You Used To Love Me” was her first single from her 1995 debut album Faith. Evans had sung backup for Al B. Sure and Christopher Williams before she became the first woman artist on Bad Boy Records. She did some singing and writing on Mary J. Blige’s and Usher’s first albums before she recorded Faith. “You Used To Love Me” presented Evans’ smokey soprano with a smoldering bass and gentle guitar. Sean “Diddy” Combs and Chucky Thompson produced the song’s luxurious soulful feeling and Evans wrote the words. The video featured her then-husband Biggie Smalls who plays a radio DJ talking to a woman about her relationship. Faith went platinum and Evans was one of the key members of the Bad Boy renaissance. “You Used To Love Me” was used in the Smalls’ 2009 biopic Notorious. In 2017, her album of duets with her late husband Christopher Wallace, The King & I was released. She married producer and star of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Stevie J in 2018.
