Eric Roberson blessed us with his “Lessons” in love earlier this year, giving us a heartfelt track about finding and being prepared for “the one.” But apparently, Erro wasn’t done schooling us. He’s linked up with fellow kings of R&B Anthony Hamilton, Raheem DeVaughn and Kevin Ross and assembled a soulful dream team for the official remix to “Lessons.”
A member of the gospel group United Tenors, Erro brings us the United Sangers on the “Lessons (Remix).” He begins the revamped song by shouting out Anthony, Raheem (who adds a few flourishing harmonies in the background) and Kevin before singing his verse with all new lyrics. Eric shares how God blessed his mess before singing the familiar chorus. AHam comes through on the second verse to take us to church with some truths about life and love. DeVaughn’s verse follows, and he tells a story about the special woman who “came as a blessing with a lesson.” Kev Ross rounds things out and represents for the young cats with the wisdom of a man twice his age. The song ends with all the singers coming together on the bride and outro to show their impeccable range.
Produced by Anikan & Vadar, Eric Roberson’s “Lessons (Remix)” is a masterclass in how you do an R&B posse cut and a remix. Each artist stands on their own while working in strong collaboration with the rest of the crew to create a brand new work of art. Instead of being a tired retread of a song with the addition of a random verse from a rapper, the “Lessons (Remix)” is a fine complement to the original that continues the narrative, like chapters in a bestseller or scenes in a blockbuster.
“With the remix, I didn’t want to just get three of my favorite singers, I also wanted three of my favorite writers,” Eric shared via press release about the process of putting this remix together. “I’m honored to get their perspectives on the ups and downs of love and how it all leads us to where we are supposed to be.”
