If you check my iPod, you’ll learn some things about me.
1. I’m very eclectic with my music taste
2. I absolutely love Boyz II Men.
I can’t exactly remember when I discovered them, because none of my friends were old enough to appreciate them, and we didn’t listen to anything other than Ron Kenoly, Don Moen, Ebenezer Obey, our local christian station and various Nigerian worship cassettes in our house. If anyone can take credit for introducing me to the harmonies of that group, it would have to be radio personality, Delilah. I do know that from the day I heard Boyz II Men, I loved them and wanted to hear more. I spent time looking up other songs by artists like them, and when I need to focus, I sometimes find myself playing my throwback r&b playlist.
So here are 5 of my favourite r&b throwbacks. I recognize that these are more mainstream but they’re great.
1. Brian McKnight – Anytime
2. Shai – If I Ever Fall In Love
3. Monica – Angel of Mine
4. Brandy – Have You Ever
5. Boyz II Men – Dear God
