Anyways, I hadn't heard this song in ages till the other day, and it reminded me of an old debate. Given the double entendres in some of their other songs (ie: "Downtown") exactly what is SWV talking about in "Rain On Me"?
And since we're on the topic, is it just me, or is there a hidden message in this other SWV classic, "Use Your Heart"?
And hell, just for good measure, my personal favorite "Always On My Mind". See if you can count all the obscure D-list black celebs in this one.
Question: What is "Rain On Me" really about? As It's About Time a slept-on 90's R&B classic album? What was your favorite SWV track? We all know where Taj (married Eddie George) and Coko (gospel career, acrylic nail spokeswoman) are, but is Lelee washing dishes, or bussing tables at the Far Rockaway Sizzler?
 I'm not a 13 year old white girl, so hadn't heard this before I just happened to Google it by mistake, but pop singer JoJo actually does "Weak In The Knees" justice. Not bad. Not bad at all.
