Cedric "K-Ci" Hailey, star of Jodeci, co-wrote "No One Else" with his bandmate Mr. Dalvin. But some say his role on the album was much deeper than that, as he and Mary were allegedly engaged in a physically abusive, drug-fueled, relationship at the time. As a result, many attribute the pain and heartbreak that permeates the album to K-Ci. He and his brother, JoJo, left Jodeci a few years after My Life, releasing a handful of albums and touring extensively as a duo. But the pair's substance abuse—highlighted (or lowlighted) by Youtube videos of each of them collapsing onstage—halted their careers. K-Ci did manage to release a solo album, My Book, in 2006, and he and JoJo teamed up for the Japan-only release Love two years later.
