Slow Jam Saturday: Men At Large, Faded

There is something special about growing up in the nineties and experiencing R&B music. One of the great joys of streaming music is when a nineties act releases something new. I was delighted to see that the nineties duo Men At Large recently released a new single, “Faded,” in support of their upcoming fifth album, Love Benefits, scheduled for release on June 24th.

Primarily known for their 1990 hit single “So Alone,” Men At Large have stayed to their signature vocal stylings instead of trying to keep up with new trends in the 21st century. Original group members Dave Tolliver and Jason Champion sound elegant on the track as they croon about how a woman makes them feel.

Tolliver and Champion share the lead vocals coming across smoothly like an aged cognac. If “Faded” is the vibe the group plans to carry for the new album, I look forward to adding it to my collection.

Final Grade: B+

“Faded” is available on all streaming platforms.

The R&B maestro, Ne-Yo, triumphantly returns to the music scene with his latest offering, “2 Million Secrets.” This melodious creation, produced by the talented Hitmaka, delves deep into the aftermath of dishonesty and disloyalty in a romantic relationship.
