If you haven’t noticed, I’m a Boyz II Men stan. I’ve been this way since Cooleyhighharmony and it’s never going to change. They could sing nursery rhymes backwards in Cantonese and I’d buy five copies of the album–well, maybe just four. Thankfully, their upcoming album, Love, will be released next month in English. This album features classic love songs, from various genres, drenched in their incomparable harmony. Their cover of Chicago‘s 1976 hit, “If You Leave Me Now,” captures all the emotions of the original pop ballad while incorporating that unique vibe only Nate, Shawn and Wanya can deliver. Play this track to discover what putting your heart on the table sounds like and be sure to get the fellas take on the Love project after the bounce.
After the bounce
My prayer is that the new generation of young R&B thundercats are taking notes on how it’s really done.
