Single Review : Eric Roberson, Lessons

Eric Roberson, the talent affectionately known as the king of independent soul music, returns with his latest single titled “Lessons.” The song’s background is as follows: Around 3 am, the morning of his 13th wedding anniversary, Eric Roberson was sitting in his studio feeling rather creative. Reflecting over his life, he started working on an idea that would soon become the song “Lessons.” 

He posted 60 seconds of the song online and went to bed. What Eric woke up to was the most significant reaction he has received from his music in years. From the moment Eric sings the opening lyric, “God has a funny way of showing you lessons,” I immediately connected with the song. The strength of “Lessons” is the layers to the song.

On the one hand, the song is a ballad of a man singing about his love for a significant other. However, after numerous listens, personally, the song took on another meaning. In the early spring of 2021, I was diagnosed with a mild case of COVID. Prayerfully I only had a mild case. But I took my bout with COVID as a lesson from GOD that I was approaching age 40; I needed to strengthen every angle of my life. These angles included weight loss and ensuring that my house is in order. I also loved that the song brings back the art of the bridge, which is missing in R&B these days.

Eric Roberson has been in the music industry for over two decades and has my support no matter what he does. Contrarily though, with “Lessons,” Roberson has crafted a masterful R&B tune with a Gospel influence that I could easily see being played in a Tyler Perry play or an episode on Insecure. I look forward to whatever Mr. Roberson is cooking up next.

Final Grade: A+

“Lessons” is available to stream on all platforms.

Dru Hill, InDruPendence Day

Second Listen Sunday: Dru Hill, InDruPendence Day

Following the lukewarm response to Sisqo’s second album in 2001, Dru Hill returned with a new member Scola in 2002 for the vastly underpromoted Dru World Order. The group would spend the next eight years touring and eventually add new member Tao for its fourth album InDRUpendence Day this week’s Second Listen Sunday pick.

Delegation, Oh Honey

Slow Jam Saturday: Delegation, Oh Honey

One of the best things about growing up in the nineties was experiencing the joy of a Bad Boy remix. The label’s female R&B trio Total was enjoying the success of their song “Kissing You” when Puff dropped the remix in the late fall of 1995. The remix h carried the subtitle Oh Honey and was smoother than the original version.

Jason Weaver, Love Ambition

Second Listen Sunday: Jason Weaver, Love Ambition

Actors releasing musical albums has been a norm for as long as I can remember. While many like Jamie Foxx find success, others (who shall remain nameless) aren’t so lucky. One such talent was Jason Weave, who released his debut in 1994 on Motown records.
