Boyz II Men – “U Know” – Song Discussion

Regarded as one of the best music groups not only from the 90s but all of time, Boyz II Men were truly something special. The way they managed to incorporate so many aspects of hip hop, dance, R&B and soul into their music without it ever sounding jumbled is a huge accomplishment and something that very well deserved to be recognized. Their studio album II puts these skills on display in every song and one that was always a favorite of mine is “U Know”. The songs message is pretty simple: it talks about knowing how you’re the best fit for someone and just wanting them to realize this. But what really makes this song worthwhile is how it’s incredibly catchy with wonderfully melodic vocals and embellishments that keep it exciting all the way though. It clearly resonates with such a specific period in time yet feels very timeless even after all of these years.
