Single Review : RL, Another Night

Singer RL Hugger is back on the scene with his new track, “Another Night.” Last year the singer released the free streaming project, The Letter J. RL HuggerIt was a creative EP that paid homage to R&B artists whose names start with J. RL takes it back to the old school with a track made for the dance floor for his latest single.

Now I can admit while I love RL’s “Got Me A Model” and the classic bop vibe of “Wifey” and “Too Close” from his Next catalog, I prefer ballads and slow jams from RL. That said, when the opening chords of “Another Night” began, I heard a little bit of a homage to Zapp.

RL produced the song with frequent collaborator Brian “B-Flat Cook,” which eloquently tells the story of wanting to spend more than one night with someone. Vocally RL sounds great on the track, and I found myself tapping my feet and nodding my head to the production. Kudos to RL and Cook both for a song that I could see the younger crowd and RL’s older fans both grooving to.

Final Grade: B

Second Listen Sunday: Donell Jones, Where I Wanna Be

Donell Jones had already made a name for himself, writing for the likes of Usher, Jade, and Madonna, when his debut album My Heart hit stores in the summer of 1996. Jones’s debut featured the hit singles “In The Hood,” “You Should Know,” and his cover of the timeless Stevie Wonder classic “Knocks Me Off My Feet.” Furthermore, two of the album tracks, the slow jams “No Interruptions” and “I Want You To Know,” are better songs than some folk’s entire discographies that entered the music game in the last twenty years.

Slow Jam Saturday: Michael Jackson, Who Do You Know

Often it’s hard to believe it’s been thirteen years since GOD called the King of Pop home. Since his passing, fans have enjoyed some of his unreleased music. A few weeks before the official anniversary, the MJ estate blessed fans with Thriller 40.

Second Listen Sunday: Johnta Austin, Love

Big Daddy Kane was easily one of Hip Hop’s brightest stars when his third album, Taste of Chocolate, hit record stores in October of 1990. Kane was known for boasting about his talent as a microphone checker, but as any Hip Hop head will tell you, Kane possessed a first-rate technique and rhyming skills to match his bravado.
