Lil’ Wayne – How To Love Music Video

How to Love” is a music video and song by American rapper Lil’ Wayne, released as the third single from his ninth studio album, Tha Carter IV.

The song features production from Noel “Detail” Fisher.

The music video was directed by Chris Robinson, and the video premiered on Lil’ Wayne’s official YouTube VEVO channel August 23, 2011 and as MTV Jams as “Jam of the Week”. Actor and singer Tristan Wilds makes a cameo appearance.

In an interview with MTV News, Detail revealed that the video had been written entirely by Wayne himself, and felt that the video would “have a big, big effect, and it’s going to shock you because [of] the perspective you might look at it as”. He also felt that the video “crosses rap’s boundaries” with the song’s unusual style, and also stated that “after he showed me the video concept, it’s like, ‘Yo, dude, we’re gonna be at the Country Awards with this record,’… we gonna be sitting next to Taylor Swift.”

Lyrics for Lil’ Wayne – How To Love

You had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart
Never really had luck, couldn’t never figure out
How to love
How to love

You had a lot of moments that didn’t last forever
Now you in the corner tryna put it together
How to love
How to love

For a second you were here
Why you over there?
Its hard not to stare, the way you moving your body
Like you never had a love
Never had a love

When you was just a young’un your looks was so precious
But now your grown up
So fly its like a blessing but you can’t have a man look at you for 5 seconds
Without you being insecure
You never credit yourself so when you got older
It’s seems like you came back 10 times over
Now you’re sitting here in this damn corner
Looking through all your thoughts and looking over your shoulder

See you had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart
Never really had luck, couldn’t never figure out
How to love
How to love

See you had a lot of moments that didn’t last forever
Now you in the corner tryna put it together
How to love
How to love

For a second you were here
Why you over there?
Its hard not to stare the way you moving your body
Like you never had a love
Had a love

You had a lot of dreams that transform to visions
The fact that you saw the world affected all your decisions
But it wasn’t your fault
Wasn’t in your intentions
To be the one here talking to me
Be the one listening
But I admire your poppin bottles and dippin’
Just as much as you admire bartending and stripping
Baby, so don’t be mad
Nobody else trippin
You see a lot of crooks and the crooks still crook

See You had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart
Never really had luck, couldn’t never figure out
How to love
How to love

See you had a lot of moments that didn’t last forever
Now you in the corner tryna put it together
How to love
How to love

Oooh,
See I just want you to know
That you deserve the best
You’re beautiful
You’re beautiful
Yeah

And I want you to know, you’re far from the usual
Far from the usual…
