Single Review : Ruff Endz, Be The One

Baltimore-based R&B group Ruff Endz who first burst on the scene over two decades ago with the “No More” are back with their new single “Be The One.” The song will appear on the duo’s fourth coming fifth album, Rebirth, scheduled for release on April 2nd via SRG ILS Group. A midtempo ballad written by group members David Chance & Dante Jordan is auto-tune-free, which is always welcome in R&B music.

David and Dante share lead vocals on the song with its message about love and settling down. Group member David Chance had this to say about the song, “The inspiration behind the song is based on our own experiences and the experiences of most people I know. When a man has finally found the one lady that he feels is his soulmate or his ride or die, he is willing to put it all on the line for her and will put her worries to rest.”

While Dante Jordan hopes to help change the narrative with this song in our community to show that men need love and want to be in love too.” I agree with both gentlemen’s thoughts on the track and commend the gentlemen for staying true to their signature sound and not trying to cater to a younger demographic on the latest release.

Final Grade: B

“Be The One” is available on all streaming platforms now.

In addition, Rebirth is available for pre-order now and will be globally released on April 2nd, via the SRG ILS Group label imprint

Second Listen Sunday : Link, Sex Down

There was a singer who shall remain nameless set the tone for the nineties slow jams. However as nineties R&B fans know there were tons of singers who provided quality albums and tracks when it came to making a playlist via audiocassette. Lincoln Browder, better known as Link, was one of the singers.

Slow Jam Saturday : New Edition, Helplessly In Love

R&B group New Edition was at crossroads in the summer of 1987. The group’s fourth album, Under the Blue Moon, and their only one as a quartet, had only achieved gold sales. Those numbers were very different from the platinum sales of their previous two albums.

Kci, My Book

Second Listen Sunday : Kci, My Book

No matter what the musical genre is when it comes to groups, there is always a clamoring for a member to pursue solo endeavors. Kci Hailey of Jodeci is a singer in this category ever since Jodeci made its debut. Like most R&B fans, when Kci delivered his first solo record (a cover of Bobby Womack’s “If You Think You’re Lonely Now” on Jason’s Lyric soundtrack in 1994, I thought a solo debut was right around the corner.
