Now take a look at this exclusive SHEEN interview with singer Case, where we uncover the inspiration behind “Happily Ever After.

What inspired you to write “Happily Ever After,” and how did the concept for the song come about?

The song was almost finished when I got it. My best friend had just gotten married, and he actually brought me the song. I thought that it would be good to do a wedding song and it just felt right.

Can you share memorable moments from the song’s recording or production process?

The only thing I distinctly remember is it was the last song on the album so there was a crunch to get it done.

“Happily Ever After” features a young Beyoncé in its music video. What was it like working with her, and how did her involvement impact the overall feel of the video?

It was fun working with her. It was a 3-day shoot, and she was very young, so we discussed a lot of things she wanted to accomplish. Her career was so new that her being in the video didn’t add any value in that way, but we wanted a fresh face. She killed her acting in it.

The song achieved significant success on the Billboard charts. Did you anticipate its popularity, and how did you feel about its chart performance?

I anticipated it being popular. I didn’t really care about the chart performance. It was most important for me to make music that people would always listen to. That’s always been my goal. I just wanted the people to love it.

“Happily Ever After” is often regarded as one of the greatest wedding songs of all time. What does it mean to you to have your music associated with such special moments in people’s lives?

I love it. Again, the goal was to make music that transcends time, and this record absolutely did that. It’s a blessing.

How has the record affected your own love life?

It hasn’t. I didn’t really need a song, no matter how great it was, to inspire love in my life.

What do you think about the current state of R&B?

I like some of it. There’s stuff out there I like. The difference nowadays is you have to go look for good R&B. Back in the day, it was on the radio; on BET, it was easily accessible. Now you gotta look for it.

A lot of people don’t know about your history as a backup singer. Can you tell us some of the most notable records you did backup on?

The first song on Usher’s first album was a song on Christopher Williams’s album. It was less background and mostly reference work. The most notable record is that I arranged and sang the backgrounds on Montell Jordan’s “Let’s Ride.”

What do you think about people comparing you to Keith Sweat? And are those hard shoes to fill?

I’ve only heard that once from Andre Harrell. We were at the Soul Train Awards, but the comparison was about us being underrated, not vocally.

Can you tell us about anything new that you have going on?

I have a new album that I just finished called “Love Jones Volume 2” that will be released this year, and I have a podcast with Clint Coley called “Music Is the Love Language.”
