About You Make Me Wanna

"You Make Me Wanna..." is a song by American recording artist Usher. It was released by LaFace Records and Arista Records as the lead single from Usher's second studio album, My Way on August 12, 1997. "You Make Me Wanna..." was written by Usher along with Jermaine Dupri and Manuel Seal, who both produced the tune. An R&B, soul and pop ballad in C minor, it makes use of acoustic guitar, hi-hat and bell instrumentation. The song focuses on a love triangle relationship, with the protagonist wishing to leave his girlfriend for his erstwhile best friend, with a hook in which Usher states, "You make me wanna leave the one I'm with and start a new relationship with you". The record won a Billboard Music Award, a Soul Train Music Award, and a WQHT Hip Hop Award, and was nominated for a Grammy Award. "You Make Me Wanna..." appeared on several record charts, topping the UK Singles Chart and the US Hot R&B Singles, logging the second-longest run by a male artist on the latter. It also reached the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100, US Pop Songs, Canadian Singles Chart, Dutch Top 40 and ARIA Singles Chart. An accompanying music video, directed by Bille Woodruff, shows Usher dancing in various colored rooms and backgrounds, and uses an effect which creates several clones of Usher.

This is what you do
This is what you do
This is what you do
This is what you do

You make me wanna leave the one I'm with
Start a new relationship with you
This is what you do
I think about a ring and all the things that come along with you
Make me
You make me wanna leave the one I'm with
Start a new relationship with you
This is what you do
I think about a ring and all the things that come along with you
Make me
You make me

Before anything began between us
You were like my best friend
The one I used to run and talk to
When me and my girl was having problems
You used to say it'll be OK
Suggest little nice things I should do
And when I go home at night and lay my head down
Last thing I think about was you
And how

You make me wanna leave the one I'm with
Start a new relationship with you
This is what you do
I think about a ring and all the things that come along with you
Make me
You make me wanna leave the one I'm with
Start a new relationship with you
This is what you do
I think about a ring and all the things that come along with you
Make me
You make me

Now what's bad is you're the one that hooked us up
Knowing it should have been you
What's sad is that I love her but I'm falling for you
What should I do
Should I tell my baby bye-bye
Should I do exactly what I feel inside
Could I, I don't wanna go, don't need to stay
But I really need to get it together

You make me wanna leave the one I'm with
Start a new relationship with you
This is what you do
I think about a ring and all the things that come along with you
Make me
You make me wanna leave the one I'm with
Start a new relationship with you
This is what you do
I think about a ring and all the things that come along with you
Make me
You make me

At this point the situation's out of control
I never meant to hurt her
But I gotta let her go
And she may not understand it
While all of this is going on
I tried, I tried to fight it
But the feeling's just too strong
You make me, make me

You make me wanna
You make me wanna
You make me wanna
You make me wanna

You make me wanna
You make me wanna
You make me wanna
You make me wanna
You makin' me

You make me wanna leave the one I'm with
Start a new relationship with you
This is what you do
I think about a ring and all the things that come along with you
Make me
You make me wanna leave the one I'm with
Start a new relationship with you
This is what you do
I think about a ring and all the things that come along with you
Make me
You make me
