You aren’t alone. We also forgot that Toni Braxton made a moderately popular in 2000, probably on the wave of Santana’s popularity with his 1999 Supernatural.

Although it definitely features the sound of a Spanish guitar, the song features all the elements of what Braxton does best: sultry lyrics, sensual metaphor, and a soft groove that feels like twilight on a Mexican beach:

I wish that I was in your arms/Like that Spanish guitar/And you would play me through the night/’Till the dawn/I wish you’d hold me in your arms/Like that Spanish guitar/All night long, all night long/I’d be your song, I’d be your song
