I guess you can call me an 80’s baby since I was born in the mid – 80’s. But the era I remember most and want to bring back is the 90’s; early, mid or late.
What I remember most about the music from the early and mid- 90’s is how hard and raw it was, pause. Even the R&B joints had a gangsta-rap feel to them.
If you’ll recall, producer Devante Swing from Jodeci was responsible for a good portion of that generations music trends. DeVante, Teddy Riely and Puff Daddy basically ran the New Jack Swing era.
Diddy and Devante got together and created this track for a teenage up and coming artist out of Atlanta named Usher who would eventually become hip hop and R&B’s most consistent voice this side of R. Kelly.
This joint totally embodies the 90’s straight to the point and even a bit raunchy at times. And for a 16 year old kid, Usher goes hard on the track.
Imagine this joint just came out yesterday. Wouldn’t be better than 93% of the music in it’s lane.
