Babyface should be ashamed…

You ever hear a song and it makes you upset?

This just happened to me. I just heard someone playing Babyface – Soon As I Get Home and I immediately shook my head.

That has to go down as one of the most simpin’est dirt mackin songs ever. Just listen to this ish.

He starts out talking about some other dude, which is a no-no.

“Hey, come here for a second
I don’t like the way he treats you
He doesn’t deserve you
He really don’t
What kind of man
Would leave you standing in the cold
Must’ve been a silly one
To sacrifice a pot of gold
You’re the kind of woman
That needs a man that’s always there
It’s not that you require a lot
Just need some tender love and care”
See, right there I notice dirty mackin tendencies but wait it get’s better. He then decides to tell this woman what he would do if he were her man.
“I give good love
I’ll buy your clothes
I’ll cook your dinner too
Soon as I get home from work
I’ll pay your rent
Your faithful lover
Soon as I get home, soon as I get home from work
Girl, I’ll treat you right
And I’ll never lie
For all that it’s worth
I give good love (good love, good love, good love, good love)
It doesn’t make sense
That you should have a broken heart
If I were the only one
I’d never let you fall apart
You’re the kind of woman
That needs a man with lots of cash
With a stack of major credit cards
And with me you don’t have to ask”
So looking at these lyrics this person is either a liar, trick or a simp. Either way, it’s not a good look. He told her that he gives good love… lol you never ever brag on or talk about your sex game. The man said he will buy clothes, pay rent and give money whenever. See, now he thinks love can be bought and he is setting a dangerous precedent. Now the woman will expect this all the time smh. Then he tells her that he is going to do all this stuff and cook, as soon as he get’s home from work. I don’t know about you but after work, my behind is tired lol but maybe he is a different kind of brother lol. A superhero or something, you know the type of brother I see described on memes.
I think Babyface is a supremely talented man and I have no personal beef with him but this song is just terrible lol. At least the message is.
We used to joke that Musiq Soulchild was the king of the friend zone and simp music but I think Babyface was the originator. This sounds like something that a man stuck in the friend zone would tell a woman after listening to her talk about and complain about her man for a few weeks.
You know, I bet Russell Wilson or Rob Kardashian listens to him daily lol. Well, maybe not Rob anymore lol. I imagine that men who love this song are the type of dudes who will buy a woman an outfit so she can wear it on a date with someone else or pick her up from a dudes house after she spent the night with him.
Lol, and what is worse is women used to love this song. My Momma used to sing this song growing up and in hindsight now I am thinking to myself, I know my mean ass father wasn’t a Babyface type brother. Oh, heck Nah, not my father lol.
Oh yeah before I go let’s look at what the word simp means for those of you who may not be aware.
Simp (per the urban dictionary)
•A man that puts himself in a subservient/submissive position under women in hopes of winning them over, without the female bringing anything to the table.
•A man that prides himself with “Chivalry” in hopes of getting sexual gratification from women.
•A square with no game other than “Rolling out the Red-Carpet” for every woman.


I am not here to judge, in fact, I say get it how you live. I’m just saying, not being a simp hasn’t really worked for me either lol but that song made me fake mad so I had to vent. Happy Monday.
