Frederick Owens: "Youngblood" was the song that I also related well with because, on almost every corner growing up — and even now — you will forever find men, who see that cutie walking by, and won't say nothing. I was once one of those guys, and no, I didn't come from a place where men could openly say things to girls when they walked by. But I assure you, we wanted to! This song, for five years, gave me the chance to say, "Look a there!" and "What's your name?" And I relished it, for five straight years!
