“We done pain & sorrow…we done been through change…we done had way better days…but I see tomorrow…I ain’t seen no rain…cuz our sun gone shine again… (We’ve Got Love)”
Babyface has just released his new album Return of the Tender Lover. It’s everything you want out of a Babyface album.
26 years after the release of his album Tender Lover, Babyface is back with some more smooth, quiet storm R&B. The album is everything you know a Babyface album to be. It is definitely from the tender lover. It is only 9 songs, but they are all great love songs to 2 step with bae to. Babyface is a legend who has penned so many incredible records over the last 3 or decades. Seeing the tribute on the Soul Train Awards really gives a great appreciation for him. He has given us so much magic & he’s not through yet.
The album just feels good. It’s a true celebration of love. I love that he doesn’t try to be modern & adjust to the time. He stayed true to his sound & his gifts. I could hear a bit of For The Cool In You throughout & even a touch of Whip Appeal. Not only does he give good music, but he even collaborated with El Debarge & After 7 on the album. What more can you ask for?
Return of the Tender Lover is available everywhere now. Take a listen, you won’t regret it. Listen to the song Exceptional below:
