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 : The Rude Boys, Rude House

For this week’s Second Listen Sunday, I decided to visit the Buckeye State and pay homage to The Rude Boys. The Cleveland-based quartet consisted of Larry Marcus, Melvin Sephus, Edward Lee “Buddy” Banks, and Joe Little III. Initially breaking onto the scene in 1990 with the hits “Written All Over Your Face” and “Are You Lonely For Me” from their debut, they wasted no time returning to the studio.

Slow Jam Saturday : Lloyd, Valentine

Valentine’s Day 2024 may have come and gone, but I still plan to use highlight songs with the V-word for February’s Slow Jam Saturday. The artist I chose is a southern gentleman by the name of Lloyd. Initially breaking onto the scene as a member of the preteen-boy band N-Toon, Lloyd’s solo career kicked off in 2004 with the hit “Southside.”

Slow Jam Saturday : Ryan Leslie, Valentine

As we continue to celebrate the month of love, I chose “Valentine by Ryan Leslie as the second song with the word valentine for February’s Slow Jam Saturday. Leslie broke into the music industry in 2003, writing hits for Beyoncé and New Edition. Leslie released the singles “The Way That U Move Girl” and “Used 2 Be” featuring Fabolous. However, his debut album was never officially released due to creative differences with his record label. In late 2007, Leslie finally broke through with the bop “Diamond Girl,” and his self-titled album would finally hit record stores on February 10, 2009. Leslie also succeeded with the follow-up singles “Addiction” and “How It Was Supposed to Be.” Surprisingly, though, Leslie didn’t drop “Valentine” as the fourth single, which would have timed perfectly with the album release date.
