El DeBarge has been given a second chance despite battling drug addiction for so many years. What a blessing ! I am happy for his opportunity. I am really feeling his new CD. You can play it from beginning to end. I love the vibe. The first single "Second Chance" got every one's attention with it's introspective lyrics. I am really feeling his new single with Faith Evans, "Lay With You" so simple, but makes you feel good.
I actually am a much bigger fan of his brother Chico, who sings tenor. He had a couple of CD's several years ago that were very good. He too has battled drugs in his life but has also remained remarkably talented, despite abusing his body. He released a CD back in 2009 titled "Addiction" that has been VERY slept on in my opinion. I have been playing it for a while now but it is not on the radar at all. I mean I have not seen much promotion at all & it seems they only released one single, "Oh No" when I can assure you, there are some slamming cuts on there. With all the focus on his brother's comeback, it brought him to mind. I had to hunt and hunt for the link below & was surprised I couldn't even find a video for the single. My fear is that he may be continuing to battle his addiction, and that may be why he just disappeared after releasing this gem of a CD & there has been no promotion. I really hope that is not the case.
I hate to see addiction rob people of their dreams and will continue to hope for their continued recovery.
I think good music makes the world go around. Hope you enjoy the videos.
What music/artists are you listening too ?
