I’m seriously missing my regular R&B fix now Matt’s left. This was one of his – found through a mix of his on soundcloud under the guise of Ghetteux.
It’s from his fourth and 2010 album, “Passion, Pain & Pleasure” (Atlantic) and is up there for me as a more current, even more smooth equivalent to Usher – Caught up.
He toured with Monica last year to promote it and this track features Drake (hands up who else didn’t know his career started on Degrassi: The Next Generation??!), who also currently features in 3 of the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop top 10.
I’m building a list of recent R&B albums I NEED to buy. This is one of them – some of sounds like it could have been produced by R. Kelly. What more could you need?
