The year was 1981, and a music legend in the making, Prince was slowly crafting his musical royalty legacy. Before releasing his fourth album, Controversy, Prince introduced the band The Time to the world with their self-titled debut album.
Slow Jam Saturday: Tony Terry, Everlasting Love
Washington D.C.-based vocalist Tony Terry hit the music scene in 1987 with his debut album Forever Yours, which was accompanied by the charting singles “Forever Yours,” “Lovey Dovey,” and “She’s Fly.” Three years later, Terry would cement his place in R&B with the release of his self-titled second album and its hit single “With You.” While “With You” is Tony’s signature song and an accessible choice for Slow Jam Saturday, I wanted to highlight another one of Tony’s slow cuts.
“Everlasting Love” is the closing track on Tony’s second album and final single. Similar to “With You,” the song charted at #6. Tony wrote the song with Bobby Reese, and the lyrics speak to the power of unconditional love. Over the course of the song, Tony can express his appreciation for having someone special in his life who brings joy and happiness.
It doesn’t matter what the circumstances are. Tony is thankful for the miracles that come with unconditional love, the wishes that come true, and the kindness and support that always lift him up. He sings of the eternal nature of fulfilling love, one that will never fade away. This message reminds you that you will find peace and joy if you seek it. A year later, Tony would link up with an up & coming R&B group named Jodeci for a fire remix.
While Tony Terry’s signature song is “With You,” “Everlasting Love” is equally elegant and beautiful.
Final Grade: B+
“Everlasting Love” from Tony Terry is available on all streaming platforms.
