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

Sammie, I’m Him

Second Listen Sunday: Sammie, I’m Him

R&B singer Sammie recently shared with some of his counterparts for an interesting Versuz. While I was well above the age demographic when Sammie made his debut in 1999, he has always had a capable singing voice. Nevertheless, Sammie decided to go the indie route and has released five mixtapes, two additional albums, and six EPs in the last sixteen years. One of those EP’S, I’m Him is this week’s pick for Second Listen Sunday.

Michael DeLorenzo, Don't Let Me Be

Slow Jam Saturday: Michael DeLorenzo, Don’t Let Me Be

Michael DeLorenzo, who had the role of Detective Eddie Torres for the first three seasons, covered James Taylor’s 1972 hit “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight.” DeLorenzo was no stranger to musical talent, having displayed his dancing ability in the forgotten dance flick Fast Forward and Michael Jackson’s “Beat it” Video.

Teena Marie, Irons in the Fire

Second Listen Sunday: Teena Marie, Irons in the Fire

I wanted to pay homage to Marie’s third album and her personal favorite, Irons in the Fire. Artists releasing two albums was common in the music industry. Teena was still red hot with her second album Lady T when Irons in the Fire hit stores on August 14th, 1980.
