A beautiful collaboration of Reba McEntire and LeAnn Rimes was released in 2007. Their song “When You Love Someone Like That” deals with the reality of heartbreak. The narrator felt like she wasted her time, and she blames herself for why he left her.

Think it was me it must have been me

I guess I did something wrong

I tried too hard

Wanted too much

I guess that’s why it’s gone

However, someone tells her that it wasn’t her fault, and maybe he would do the same when he is with somebody else. 

He’ll do the same to someone else it ain’t about you

So don’t be so hard on yourself

When we don’t know the reason why someone leaves us, we felt like it’s our fault. We blame ourselves, and we even hurt ourselves because of what happened. However, we have to realize that when a person leaves us it’s not about you but the other way around.

“When You Love Someone Like That” Collaboration

Reba and LeAnn’s collaboration was amazing. LeAnn began singing until the chorus, and she was followed by Reba. The single was part of LeAnn’s ninth studio album Family and Reba’s twenty-fourth album Reba Duets. It was written by Ed Hill and Karyn Rochelle. In LeAnn’s album, “When You Love Someone Like That” was added as a bonus track together with her single “Till We Ain’t Strangers Anymore,” a duet with Bon Jovi.
