Boyz II Men’s top 5 timeless classics

Filipinos are deeply rooted in music as they easily connect fond memories – which is why iconic 90s bands such as Boyz II Men have a special place in their hearts.

And what’s even better is that Filipinos here in the UAE as well as fellow expats can now have that once in a lifetime chance to listen to Boyz II Men live as they perform in a one-night-only concert produced by Live Nation with BookMyShow and Ticket Master as official ticketing partners at Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena, this December 19!

Spanning two decades of soulful R&B pieces, here are the top five popular songs of Boyz II Men that concert goers will surely be anticipating during the evening of the concert.

On Bended Knee

Notable Lyrics: “Can somebody tell me how to get things back
The way they use to be?
Oh God give me a reason
I’m down on bended knee”

This hugot song became popular with couples whose trust have been broken after one of them had a moment of weakness. This is when the person realizes the real importance of being faithful as each moment without their significant other ‘seems like an eternity’. The song also features a spoken word letter within it, which is a sincere apology from the guy to his one true love.

I’ll Make Love To You

Notable Lyrics: “I’ll make love to you
Like you want me to
And I’ll hold you tight
Baby all through the night”

Boyz II Men’s “I’ll Make Love To You” is the 90s’ answer to Bruno Mars’ ‘Versace on the Floor’ – a ballad meant to sweeten those intimate moments together as two hearts intertwine in an evening filled with love and affection.

One Sweet Day

Notable Lyrics: “And I know you’re shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day”

This iconic, timeless duet with the one and only Mariah Carey shares the regrets of the people left behind after one’s passing, after taking that person’s presence for granted for so long. The song eventually progresses to acceptance as the singer acknowledges that they will see each other again soon.

4 Seasons of Loneliness

Notable Lyrics: “As I watch 4 seasons change
Here comes the winter breeze that
That chills the air and hits the snow
And I imagine kissing you under the mistletoe”

Another popular hugot song of Boyz II Men, the song shares the story of a man who has already lost the girl for good this time around. The guy struggles to move on as each season, every simple detail always reminds him of his girl who is already gone from his arms.

End of the Road

Notable Lyrics: “Although we’ve come
To the end of the road
Still I can’t let go It’s unnatural
You belong to me, I belong to you”

Boyz II Men never seems to run out of hugots as ‘End of the Road’ shares the story of a guy left by a girl without even saying goodbye. The guy continues to love the girl even if he knows that she is already seeing another guy – a testament to his unyielding love for her otherwise known in Filipino as ‘nagpapakamartir’.

Tickets for the Boyz II Men Concert in Dubai are now available at ae.bookmyshow.com, www.ticketmaster.ae, and at www.coca-cola-arena.com
