Earlier this week, Lalah Hathaway had a listening party for her new album VANTABLACK in Los Angeles. The exclusive affair was held at the Peppermint Club, and from what we’ve heard and seen online from many who were in attendance, Lalah has outdone herself on this project. No one should be surprised by the advanced rave reviews, however. Hathaway has been dropping one fire single after the other with “So In Love” and “I AM,” and she continues to set it off with her third, “Mood For You” featuring MC Lyte.

As the title suggests, Lalah’s feeling amorous in “Mood For You,” and she’s not shy about making her desires known from the (bedroom) door. “Put your hands on me / I like where it’s going / What you want to see / I’m OK with showing,” she entices in her sultry tone atop the intoxicating, percussion-heavy groove co-produced alongside Warryn Campbell and Eric Dawkins. She continues to pour honey all over the lyrics, singing, “Let me in on your fantasy / Tell me what you’re thinking / We ain’t gotta go nowhere / We can get it up as we go / No plan let it flow.”

Whew! Is it hot in here, or is it Lalah Hathaway and this song? Rest assured, it’s most def Lalah and this sexy little number. Veteran femcee MC Lyte matches her energy and breezes through on the bridge with her iconic voice to spit some game and fire of her own.

Lalah started off two-for-two with VANTABLACK’s singles, and “Mood For You” officially makes it three-for-three. This collection already sounds like it has album of the year potential. We’ll find out if our prediction rings true when VANTABLACK drops on Friday, June 14th. Pre-add the album now on Apple Music.
