True fans will remember Glenn Lewis from his 2001 jam, “Don’t You Forget It”, and since then, he’s been on a serious hiatus. (Although, we did love him covering himself on “This Love” on Marsha Ambrosius’ mixtape).
With no real explanation for his absence (other than perhaps a finicky industry or janky deal), Lewis has resurfaced and is now working on his sophomore album, Moment of Truth, slated for an early 2013 release on the legendary Ruffhouse Records/EMI.
In a newly released photo, Lewis is seen working with recent Grammy-winner Melanie Fiona on new material. In the picture, don’t they look like a couple? We might be going too far.
“Melanie Fiona is one of the top five best female vocalists in the game. I feel particularly honored she chose to work with me on my new project,” said Glenn Lewis in a statement to AllHipHop.com. “She’s a personal favorite person in this world to me. She’s a star in every sense of the word.”
While we wait for what’s sure to be a hit collabo between the two, let’s take a look back at Lewis’ cover of “This Love” with Ambrosius, along with a throwback reason for why fans first fell in love with Lewis a decade ago:
