P. Diddy's "I Need A Girl (Part One)" Was The Best R&B Song Of The Early 2000s
I need a girl to ride, ride, ride.
Diddy — Sean Combs, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy — has been blessing us with his talents since the '90s, but he truly owned the aughts.
Anyway, in 2002, Diddy gave us "I Need A Girl (Part One)", which is probably the best R&B song of the '00s.
It begins with a thoughtful Diddy taking off his sunglasses and staring into the camera.
Then fades into a party...
...where a pensive Usher stands alone surrounded by beautiful ladies.
Oh, and there's a random room somewhere and Diddy and Usher are just in there dancing.
Then Diddy starts to talk about how unfulfilled his love life is. He needs a wife, not some regular-ass girl.
Usher has to take off his sunglasses because things are getting serious.
And, in true early 2000s Usher fashion, lifts his shirt.
There's so much going on in this video. For instance, Carl Thomas's turtleneck and hat game.
Usher takes off his sunglasses again!
There's this little move, which I am so obsessed with.
Then Diddy spends the last half of the song singing about a woman who is probably Jennifer Lopez.
Take a little time out of your day to relive this beautiful moment in music history.
