There was always some degree figurative language in Ginuwine’s slow jams. The subtext was laid on thick with a clever wink with what subject matter. Not that “Pony” or its subject matter are particularly hidden, but at least there’s the attempt at metaphor.
No such attempts are made in “Leave It In,” the singer’s latest song that he shared Saturday afternoon. The opening sounds like a mix of a child’s voice and a bed rocking. “She want to have my baby,” Ginuwine sings. “All she needs is a man like me who can give her love and leave it in.” His next album is due this year, and if his past Insatgrams are any indication, this might not appear on it, given it’s a non-Timbaland-produced cut.
But listen below anyway and try to remain composed.
