Above is your Sunday iPod add. “Love After War” by Robin Thicke. This is simply an awesome R&B track. Period. Thicke has written a song that sonically honors classic Motown and the writing efforts of Smokey Robinson. Its relentless up-tempo groove and slick production make this track shine. Thicke’s contemporaries, Tank, Tyrese, Joe, Carl Thomas, and Genuwine, who all have released albums in the past 10 months, have been put on notice to step up their R&B game. Just a note: Eric Benét has elevated his game. I’ll blog about him on a later date.
Add “Love After War” to your iPod and you will thank me later.
