Kenny Lattimore - Weekend
Lattimore first bursts unto
the music scene in 1996 with his self-titled album that gave us the
brilliant floor mover 'Never
too busy' and the ultra
smooth ballad 'For you'
(that went on to score top ten success on the Billboard Top 100
R&B charts). With the success of the debut came his sophomore set
'From the Soul of Man'
(in '98) and again another fine body of work but sadly garners no
attention from the airwaves (neither radio and internet) or consumers.
Now 3 years
on, Kenny has a new outlook as he switches gears and signs a deal with
a new label in Arista and now has a fantastic new tune out
that's making the rounds on the R+R circuit. Taken from the album of
the same the name, the song is written by Kenny and produced by the
ever so popular, up and coming producers Troy
Taylor and Charles
Ferrar (aka The
features a wide array of writers and producers including George
and the Marley
Brothers to name a few but the stand
out track for me is 'Come to me'
wonderfully produced by Raphael. Other notables are 'Baby,
you are the one', 'Don't
deserve' and the mid-tempo groove 'Can
you feel me' featuring Shanice.
With that said one can hardly wait to get their hands on the finished
product. I'm really looking forward to the full length set which has a
tentative release date slated for September.... Another TY-D
Pick here and I promise you will hear
this one a lot on the show.
Jackson - You
rock my world: (MJJ/Sony)
The King of Pop Michael
Jackson is back and in
a very big way with this the lead-off single from his forth coming
full length set "Invincible",
his first studio album of all new material in 7 years.
Produced and written in
collaboration with Rodney
Jenkins this catchy
mid-tempo dance groove marriages the blend of pop and soul to marinate
your soul with the 'tapping toe' syndrome (shake a leg people) and
will light up dance floors across the universe and most definitely
will top the charts.
The album is due out October 30th and from
early reviews most think it's some of his best work in years - time
will tell but I tell you this, a definitive TYD Pick - no doubt.
