Choosey Lover

"Choosey Lover" is a 1983 quiet storm soul song by The Isley Brothers (Originally titled "Juicy Lover"). Released on their T-Neck imprint, the song was their second consecutive top ten R&B hit after their seminal "Between the Sheets" hit No. 3 on that chart. It was the second of two chart-topping singles the Isleys released off their aptly titled Between the Sheets album. "Choosey Lover" was also the last charting single to feature the 3 + 3 lineup of the band. A year later, younger brothers Ernie Isley (who played the memorable guitar solos on the song and co-wrote the lyrics), Marvin Isley and their brother-in-law Chris Jasper left to form Isley-Jasper-Isley while older brothers Ronald Isley, Rudolph Isley and O'Kelly Isley continued on under the "Isley Brothers" name.

The song has similarities to the Earth, Wind & Fire song "Devotion". The song was covered by R&B singer Aaliyah in two styles—"Old School" and "New School", making up track 6 on her 1996 album One in a Million, with the "Old School" section very closely resembling the original before transitioning into the "New School" section, which features more of a hip hop beat and feel. The song was sampled and redone to make "Buddah Lovaz", a song dedicated to marijuana, by Bone Thugs-n-Harmony & the remix to "Street Dreams" by Nas featuring R. Kelly. The song also has elements which have been used in Keith Sweat's "Nobody".
