Back Like That cover 2006
"Back Like That" is the second single by rapper Ghostface Killah from his critically acclaimed fifth solo album Fishscale. The song features R&B singer Ne-Yo and has become Ghostface's highest charting solo single on the Billboard Hot 100. It contains a sample of "Baby Come Home" as performed by Willie Hutch as well an interpolation of "Song Cry" as performed by Jay-Z. A remix featuring Kanye West & Ne-Yo was produced and later included on Ghostface's sixth album More Fish. In 2009, Ghostface performed the song with Chrisette Michele at VH1's 6th Annual Hip Hop Honors ceremony.
The song was also his debut as a featured artist.
The music video for "Back Like That" was directed by Ray Kay and Mike Caruso. The video illustrates the deterioration of the relationship between Ghostface and his girlfriend after she cheats on him with a man with whom he has beef. Over time, Tony regains his wounded pride and eventually kicks her out of their apartment. As the story draws to a close, the man she cheated on him with walks into a set-up where Tony's friends lie in wait. He promptly turns around to run away and they all give chase. The video then concludes with a "to be continued..."
A second version of the remix has a new verse by Ne-Yo, different from his verse of the main remix, was included on Ghostface's compilation album GhostDeini the Great.
