“You Know How to Love Me” is a song by Reggie Lucas and James Mtume, most notably recorded by Phyllis Hyman and released on Hyman’s LP You Know How To Love Me, released in 1979. The single released towards the end of the disco era, was one of Phyllis Hyman’s most successful releases. “You Know How to Love Me” peaked at number six on the disco chart, becoming her biggest hit on that chart. While the single did not place on the Hot 100, it peaked at number twelve on the Hot Soul Singles chart.
On the afternoon of June 30, 1995, Hyman committed suicide by overdosing on pentobarbital and secobarbital in her New York City apartment. She was found unconscious hours before she was scheduled to perform at the Apollo Theater and died 3 hours later at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital. Her suicide note read in part:
“I’m tired. I’m tired. Those of you that I love know who you are. May God bless you.”
She was 45 years old. A memorial service was held at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Manhattan. The following week would have been her 46th birthday.
