Throwback: Phyllis Hyman-You Know How To Love Me

Phyllis Hyman’s “You Know How To Love Me” was the center of her fourth album which shared its name with the song.  James Mtume and Reggie Lucas wrote “You Know How To Love Me” and produced the album. The upbeat tune became a club hit of classy funk that showcased Hyman’s versatility after singing a sultry ballad and soul classic for Norman Connors. Hyman had a Top 20 R&B album and a number six spot on the dance charts thanks to the title track which is now considered her signature song. “You Know How To Love Me” is still popular for its ability to get people on the dancefloor. Hyman’s last album Forever With You was posthumously released in 1998 three years after her passing.
