To me it means maturity.” “I only listen to slow jams and ESPN… Oh, and if you haven’t heard the new song by Eric Benet, ‘Sometimes I Cry,’ please stop what you’re doing and check it out,” Wayne wrote in his latest letter from jail, posted on his weezythanxyou.com blog site. “It’s the best song I’ve heard since Maxwell’s ‘Woman’s Worth.’ Wayne is referring to “Woman’s Work, Maxwell’s remake of the Kate Bushhit. “It’s for grown folk. I actually listen to the radio all day waiting for that song,” says Wayne. “Sometimes I Cry” is currently logged at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot Adult R&B Airplay chart. “Lost in Time” will be Benet’s fifth studio release.
