Lil Wayne pens a letter to his No. 1 fan Anne on “Dear Anne,” his answer to Eminem’s classic “Stan.” The introspective piano-driven track was produced by Swizz Beatz and samples Russian pop duo t.A.T.u.’s “30 Minutes.”
“I hope I see you in the stands, Anne/ Because you know I understand, Anne/ And I’m sorry about Stan, so I wrote this to say that I’m your No. 1 fan,” raps an appreciative Weezy.
Swizz originally submitted the song for Eminem’s Relapse album and then offered it to Wayne in exchange for a verse on his Haute Living single “Rock ‘N’ Roll.” But it won’t appear on Tha Carter IV and instead finds a home on the Internet for your listening pleasure.
