Throwback Thursday: Lil’ Mo – “4ever” (featuring Fabolous)
Today is Lil’ Mo’s 42nd birthday, so it is only right that we take a look at her greatest contribution to popular music.
“Superwoman” is her biggest hit as a lead artist, and she has had even bigger hits as a featured act, but Lil Mo’s greatest gift to us is “4ever” (featuring Fabolous). Released in April 2003, it was the lead single from her sophomore set, Meet the Girl Next Door.
Though it cracked the top 40 (peaking at No. 37 on the Billboard Hot 100), “4ever” isn’t the kind of song that the average person would even know. However, it holds a special place in the hearts of R&B fans of a certain age.
Production-wise, “4ever” is very ’02/’03, but it offers a melody that is good for any year. And them lyrics? Evergreen.
And of course, Lil Mo sings every word of that song like she means it. Click play.
