New Music: Eric Bellinger – Make You Mine
Today, Eric Bellinger is celebrating his son’s 2nd birthday, and the love he has for his wife, LaMyia.
Following the release of last week’s “Treat Yourself” featuring Wale, the R&B singer/songwriter debuts the dancehall inspired love song “Make You Mine,” off his forthcoming EP, Eric B. for President: Term 2, due out March 10.
Promising to make the bad gal of his dreams fall in love Eric seduces her singing, “Girl I want to kiss and caress, say yes / And I know that my lovin’ no one can contest / And I need a freak, if you a freak say yes / One wicked and bad, bad girl.”
“People are really into the Island/Caribbean vibes right now, so much that I started to feel like I would be crazy to just ignore that,” explained Bellinger about the song. “However I knew if I was gonna make one it still had to be me. So I got transparent… I opened up and wasn’t afraid to make it personal. For this song I took it back and shared the chase that I was on when getting my girl. My first date with my now wife LaMyia was insane. I went all out. I had been on her for over a decade so I knew I had to make that first impression count. We had a conversation about cereal one night before we went out and we shared our love for cereal… From types of cereal to flavors of milk to sizes of bowls and spoons. I obviously did my thing because now she’s mine and TODAY our son just turned two years old!”
