About More Than a Woman

"More Than a Woman" is a song performed by American recording artist Aaliyah. It was written by Static Major and Timbaland, who produced the song for her self-titled 2001 album. While the song incorporates a sample from Syrian singer Mayada El Hennawy's 1993 song "Alouli Ansa", El Hennawy and her songwriters remain uncredited on "More Than a Woman". A pop, electro and hip hop song, it was one of three records Timbaland produced for Aaliyah and features digital strings, harsh-sounding synthetic bass, and guitar sounds. Lyrically, the track expresses a female's promise to be "more than a woman" to her love interest. In August 2001, in support of the song's upcoming single release, Aaliyah along with director Dave Meyers shot a music video for "More Than a Woman" in Los Angeles and then travelled to the Bahamas to shoot a video for "Rock the Boat". But after its completion, she and several crew members who were returning to the US died in a plane crash on August 25. While Blackground Records executives were initially uncertain when they would issue the single and its accompanying video, "More Than a Woman" was eventually released in November 2001 in the United States and January 2002 in the United Kingdom. A commercial success, "More Than a Woman" reached number one on the UK Singles Chart, becoming Aaliyah's first song to do so, while reaching the top ten in Scotland. In the US the song experienced moderate success, where it peaked at number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100. Aaliyah performed the song on Live with Regis & Kelly on July 18, 2001 and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on July 25, 2001, which was her last performance before her death. "More Than a Woman" was nominated for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in the 45th Annual Grammy Awards.

Passion, instant
Swear me, feel me
Cupid's shot me
My heartbeat's racing
Tempt me, drive me
Feels so exciting
Thought of highly
It's yours entirely

I'll be
I'll be more than a love
More than a woman
More than your lover
I'll be
I'll be more than another
More than a woman
More than another
I'll be
(I'll be more) more than your lover
(More) more than a woman
(More) more than your lover
I'll be
(I'll be more) more than a lover
(More) more than a woman
(More) more than another

Midnight grindin'
My heart rate's climbin'
You go, I go
Cause we share pillows
Taste me, feed me
There's still no separating
Morning massages
With new bones in your closet

I'll be
I'll be more than a lover
More than a woman
More than your lover
I said I'll be
I'll be more than another
More than a woman
More than another
I'll be
(I'll be more) more than your lover
(More) more than a woman
(More) more than your lover
I'm gonna be
(I'll be more) more than a lover
(More) more than a woman
(More) more than another

I don't think you're ready
I don't thin you're ready for this thing
For this thing
I don't think you're ready for this thing
You're not ready
I don't think you're ready for this thing
This thing, this thing
I don't think you're ready for this thing

Constant pressures
No scale can measure
Secret treasures
Keeps on getting better
Do you wanna roll with me?
We can go to foreign lands your hand in my hand
Do you wanna ride with me?
We can be like Bonnie & Clyde
Be by your side

I'll be more than a lover
More than a woman
More than your lover
I'll be more than another
More than a woman
More than another
(I'll be more) more than your lover
(More) more than a woman
(More) more than your lover
(I'll be more) more than a lover
(More) more than a woman
(More) more than another
