With so much excitement from music veterans and fans about Jodeci’s return at the 2014 Soul Train Awards and their upcoming new single, the nostalgia for the Bad Boys of R&B has been something serious.
Soulful music this good can only come out of Charlotte, North Carolina where both Jodeci and Anthony Hamilton are from, so it’s to no surprise that soul singer Anthony Hamilton agreed to cover their famed hit single “Freek’n You” on ThisisRnB Sessions! ThisisRnb.com caught up with the crooner for a special edition of their live acoustic series at StadiumRed Studios in Harlem, New York. The set, which will be released soon, is in promotion of Hamilton’s brand new Christmas album, Home For The Holidays, which is in stores now!
In addition to performing cuts off the new album, Anthony delivered a smooth live rendition of one of his all-time favorite R&B classics (with some gritty soul) the Jodeci gem “Freek N’ U”. The fellow North Carolina native reaffirms why he is one of the greatest voices of our time. Check out his cover below!
