Not sure if Cymande counts as "r+b" or not.

But they are one of my favorite bands of all time, in any case. So I, of course, love to bring them up whenever possible.

five years pass...

re-visitied Brian Mcknight's album Anytime, prob been about 15 years since i heard it last. not really random since it's double platinum but dont really hear anything about it any more. holds up really well. 'Anytime', 'The Only one For Me' and 'Hold Me' were great singles (altho i guess Anytime wasnt officially a single? despite being everywhere for a while)

'I belong to you' sounds like something ty$ could release today

'you got the bomb' - some nice wah and slap bass - great intro

'til i get over you' is probably my favorite album cut on here tho

Waiting for a drag queen to lip synch for their life to Super Woman by Karyn White.

And Don't Disturb This Groove by The System is waiting for it's Toro Y Moi cover.

Discovered this song about a year ago (source of the sample from Kanye's 'Late') and then forgot about it until recently. Unforgivably, because it's utterly effing gorgeous:

case "missing you"

lol apparently a new yfn lucci song w/ trey songz samples that ^^^. maybe that's why i randomly heard it again on a quiet storm hour around the time of making that post

the new one is lyrically clunky and generally undistinguished... but the smoldering production, even lifted wholesale from "missing you" like that, makes it stand out somehow
