Single Review: Omar Wilson, “The Secret Garden” feat. Sisqó, Shawn Stockman & Raheem DeVaughn

One of the most iconic R&B songs of all time, “The Secret Garden (Sweet Seduction Suite)” receives a 2020 cover version. The original version was from Quincy Jones’s Back On The Black album and featured American R&B singers Al B. Sure!, James Ingram, El DeBarge, and Barry White. The 2020 version is the lead single from up & coming singer Omar Wilson’s album Omar Wilson Sings the Classics. Wilson enlists vocalists Sisqó, Shawn Stockman & Raheem DeVaughn for his version.

Unlike Jermaine Dupri’s horrid 2010 remix version which featured Usher, Robin Thicke, Tyrese LL Cool J ,Tevin Campbell & Barry White, the newest version brings it’s modern day flavor to the song.  Each of the singers pays homage to the original singer’s verse they are singing with Shawn Stockman standing out.

In a time when folks think R&B is dead, Omar Wilson, Sisqó, Shawn Stockman & Raheem DeVaughn give us a glimmer of hope with their version of, “The Secret Garden (Sweet Seduction Suite)”.

 Final Grade B+

“The Secret Garden (Sweet Seduction Suite)” is available on all streaming platforms.
