Released: 8th October 2001.

It's a bit of a shame that India Arie decided to release another single that carries a message rather than a good tune. The singer continues the feel-good-about-yourself trend started in her debut, "Video", by addressing the lyrics to a lover whose skin is also brown ("Skin so brown, lips so round", "Beautiful mahogany, you make me feel like a queen"). However, there are much better songs on the album; songs that would mark India Arie as a good musician rather than a positive lyric provider.
