“Oh…the thing about your love…it’s awaking me…elevating me…I thought you should know…just like water we just flow…now that sun I’ve seen it rise…but never through these eyes, girl…(Can’t Tell U Enough)”
Eric Benét is back with his new self-titled album. It is new & improved, yet vintage & nostalgic at the same time.
It has been quite some time since there has been a new Eric Benét album & it was definitely worth the wait. I knew from the moment I heard the first single Sunshine that the album would be something special. We all know that Eric has the vocals, but it also in the music that we find something beautiful & rich. As a 90s baby, any album than can take me back to growing up with 90s R&B is alright with me. The album is sexy, heartfelt, smooth, infused with Jazz, Soul, & Hip Hop & just an all around pleasant listening experience. From the electric sensuality of Insane, which always puts me in the mind of Prince, to the ethereal beauty of Floating Thru Time, which has been on repeat for the better part of 2 days. It is yet another great example of the great music that has counter-acted a dismal year. Another great R&B album for the playlist. It features appearances by Arturo Sandoval, MC Lyte, & even a re-visit to great duets with Tamia. All in all, it’s a great addition to your playlist.
