“Brenda Lee – Sweet Nothings”


Sweet Nothin’s is a 1959 song by Brenda Lee. Written by Ronnie Self. It peaked at No.4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No.12 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in 1960. The song also charted on the UK singles chart in 1960, peaking at No.4, marking Lee’s first appearance on the U.K. singles chart.

Lee’s voice from “Sweet Nothin’s” was sampled in Kanye West’s song “Bound 2” on his 2013 album Yeezus, which in turn was sampled by Sigma in their 2014 song, “Nobody to Love”, which also uses the same vocal sample from “Sweet Nothin’s” as “Bound 2” does.

  1. Red saw Brenda Lee at the Texas State Fair in probably 1988 or 89. Little Miss Dynamite was backed up by the Air Force Band and it was awesome. That’s the kind of thing that happens at the Fair – you just stumble on to something really cool.

  2. Yes! ….Alive and kicking! Thank you Neil for your visit. Memories take us on real spiritual journeys. 💕❤️💕
