In case you thought that the comebacks for 2015 were coming to an end as the year rapidly does, you’d be mistaken. Before we say goodbye to ’15, we can say hello to R&B quintet Silk‘s return with the romantic new song “Love 4 U 2 Like Me” from their upcoming new album, Quiet Storm, coming in 2016.
The last time we heard or saw from Silk was when they joined fellow throwback R&B groups Troop and Color Me Badd to put on a performance at the BET Awards ’14. Their part of the show reminded many why we loved the five-man band who first hit the scene in 1992 with their debut album Lose Control and hit big on the charts with the bedroom banger “Freak Me.”
On “Love 4 U 2 Lile Me” Silk choose not to let their freak flags fly, however, instead delivering a sweet mid-tempo groove that politely plants the seeds of love. The fellas share lead duties as they sing straight from the heart and encourage the object of their affection to give “like” a chance with the hope of it growing into something more. In this age of swiping right for quick hook ups and songs with just as little substance, “Love 4 U 2 Like Me” is lyrically on point for grown folks who aren’t into either. With original group members Johnathen “John-John” Rasboro, Jimmy Gates, Gary “Big G” Glenn, Timothy “Timzo” Cameron and Gary “Lil G” Jenkins all sounding at the top of their game vocally, “Love 4 U 2 Like Me” has been worth the wait.
Silk will unleash Quiet Storm, their first new album in a decade, in March 2016 on Shanachie Entertainment.
