So Anxious

"So Anxious" is a song by R&B singer Ginuwine. It was the third single released from his second album 100% Ginuwine. Produced by Timbaland and written by Static Major, "So Anxious" was Ginuwine's second Top 20 pop hit, and peaked into the Top 5 on the R&B charts. The song describes the narrator anxiously waiting on his lover all night to return his calls so that she can meet him for romance. The music video, directed by Chris Robinson, featured an appearance by rapper Solé and was known for changing Ginuwine's hairstyle from a baby afro to a cornrow fade. Ginuwine began dating Solé soon after the video was filmed and they wed in 2003. In the music video, Ginuwine drives a Lamborghini Diablo Roadster VT.
