There has been plenty of talk recently about R&B music being dead. On the contrary it’s very alive and well due to such talented artists as BJ the Chicago Kid, Snoh Aalegra, Lucky Daye, Ari Lennox, SiR, Mikhala Jené, Steve Lacy, Jorja Smith and H.E.R. As well as the likes of Jhené Aiko, Tinashe, Victoria Monét, Jessie Reyez, Chloe x Halle, Elijah Blake and Novel. Not to also mention veterans still doing there thing like John Legend, Raheem DeVaughn, Mary J. Blige and PJ Morton.
Even with all that great R&B/Soul music there currently is. There is still room for plenty more though and why now is as perfect a time as any for veteran singer and songwriter, Danny Boy. The one-time Suge Knight protégé and Death Row Records artist that is known for laying his beautifully incomparable vocals and hooks on such classics as 2Pac classics, I Ain’t Mad at Cha and Picture Me Rollin’. To make his triumphant return to music with his very groovy and feel-good new single, This Song. Produced by fellow Chicago legend Fred “Toxic” Taylor and composer, Byron Dorris. That has that real sensual and feel-good classic Chicago-styled Stepper’s groove. That makes you want to get up dance, groove and two-step along. As well as sing along with Danny. While he so passionately croons such lyrics as, “This song is for dancing. This song is for singing. This song is for making, this song is for making some good love to you. And this song is for moving. And you know it’s meant for grooving.” That you can feel in your soul and his. As he so passionately and effortlessly sings the very catchy and romantic lyrics. While also hitting the high notes that made him such a staple on so many 90’s classic’s.
