Arlissa’s “Hard to Love Somebody” is the audio headbutt that should have played in the background during the Chad Johnson and Evelyn Loazada conflict. With Arlissa respresenting the female perspective and Nas spitting the rhymes from a man’s point of view, it is easy to understand how the beef erupted. Based on the reality of Arlissa’s past relationship, the vivid picturesque lyrics brings her reality to life.
“Hard to Love Somebody” is used as a reference point for the evils of love you should attempt to avoid at all cost.
Nas enjoys London singers’ with soul; with Amy Winehouse resting in peace, he found a new collaborator in Arlissa.
