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: B5, Don’t Talk Just Listen

For this week’s Second Listen Sunday, I took a trip back to 2007 and revisited “Don’t Talk Just Listen” from the group B5. Hailing from the Peach State, B5 comprised the Breeding Brothers, Bryan, Carnell, Dustin, Kelly, and Patrick. Initially finding success two years earlier with their cover of The Jackson 5’s “All I Do,” their debut did just enough with their preteen fans to warrant a second album.

Slow Jam Saturday: Jagged Edge, Whole Town’s Laughing At Me

With the exception of a few cases, R&B groups experienced a period of stagnation in 2007. While some groups continued to tour and perform their renowned classics, releasing new music was infrequent. To commemorate this week’s Slow Jam Saturday, I would like to acknowledge a notable piece from Jagged Edge’s sixth album, “Baby Makin Project,” titled “Whole Town’s Laughing At Me.”

Second Listen Sunday: Ready For The World

For this week’s Second Listen Sunday, we are taking a trip to the Great Lake State and showing some love to R&B Band Ready for The World and their self-titled debut album. Arriving in stores on May 14, 1985, via MCA Records, the album on which the band produced their first single was “Tonight.”
