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

Mint Condition frontman Stokely, returns to the scene with his sophomore solo album, Sankofa. Prior to the COVID pandemic, Stokley released the singles “She”, a ballad that recalled the classic Mint Condition sound, and the up-tempo bop, “Vibrant” feat. Snoop Dogg.
