We couldn’t even begin to explain how much we miss the late 90s Neo soul genre of R&B as today we had to dedicate one for Maxwell. It’s rare when an artist releases their biggest single to date not exclusively for an album but an O.S.T. as this gem was seen on the 1999’ original soundtrack for the movie “Life” starring Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence.
This single alone went gold and would spend nearly two months as no. 1 on the US R&B Billboard eventually peaking at no. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100.
This timeless classic written and produced R. Kelly still lives in our regular rotation to this day as we’re still looking forward to new Maxwell music as he’s in preparations to release a follow-up to BLACKsummers’night with blackSUMMERS’night.
Younger readers out there should definitely pay attention and listen to this record if you’re parent(s) weren’t playing this in your childhood!
