This is a classic cut that I love, and have personally seen so many people be able to relate to. Coming from Lupe's debut album, Food & Liquor, the track He Say, She Say, vividly tells a story that breaks the heart to hear, but happens in life, far too often. With vocal assists from Gemstones and Sarah Green, listeners emotions are pierced by the despair in their voices. The young boy in the song is meant to represent Michael Young History, the main character of The Cool, as a child.
He Say, She Say is one of those tunes that really shows why Lupe is such an amazing artist. By simply changing a few words, he was able to give listeners two unique perspectives. The soulful sound of the song, paired with the well-crafted visual, really puts viewers in the front seat to experience the pain that exists in some single parent households. My heart goes out to anyone who has gone through this, but like Lu would probably say, much love to you!
