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
