The single was featured on the band’s 1992 Grammy winning “Bad To The Bone” album and was a number 1 song in many countries including Ireland, Austria, and Germany. “Sweat” was also sampled by Laza Morgan for “One By One“, and Jamie T’s “If You Got The Money“.

There are times when Recording Artist Lincoln 3Dot tells tales of his adventures with beautiful women via his Snapchat, or flexing his lyricism via Youtube or at an event near you. Today, he sheds light on troubled women in “Broken Home“. Directed by Spugy Ink Films, 3Dot states over the Dre Day produced track that even though he loves the “Bad girl” types, many of them have a story to tell that made them who they are. From abuse, a troubled childhood, to troubling finding love and acceptance, Lincoln lets the listeners know that many young girls lost in the world. With a single that reminds you of Ludacris’ “Runaway Love” and Nas’ “Black Girl Lost“, “Broken Home” could be mentioned with them when discussing serious issues in society among young women.
