Anthony Hamilton Live Beacon Theatre Sep 2012

just released his latest album “What I’m Feelin”, so it’s only right to look back at the Top 10 Best Anthony Hamilton songs from his career. Technically, he’s released five albums so far, not counting unreleased albums, compilations and holiday albums, so there is a ton to choose from here. And of course as one of the premiere r&b artists of the past decade, this was not an easy list to narrow down.

Over the course of this feature, we dug through all of his music and picked out the 10 songs we felt were his best. We started at his debut “Comin From Where I’m From” from 2003 (we didn’t included the “XTC” album) and went up until today. Let us know if you agree or disagree with the results!

10) Do You Feel Me

This Diane Warren penned song was tucked away on the soundtrack to the movie American Gangster, which Hamilton also made a cameo in.

9) Never Let Go (featuring Keri Hilson)

This gem was included on Hamilton’s “Back to Love” album and saw both artists styles meeting in the middle on this progressive r&b ballad.

8) Comin From Where I’m From

The single that started it all for Anthony Hamilton following appearances on hits like “Po Folks” with Nappy Roots and “Thugz Mansion” with 2Pac.

7) Change Your World

This standout album cut was included on Hamilton’s “Aint Nobody Worryin” album and featured production from Questlove and James Poyser of The Roots.

6) Sailin Away

This gem was the final track on the “Southern Comfort” compilation album released in 2007. The album and this song were from recordings between 2000 and 2002 prior to Anthony Hamilton’s debut.

5) Cool (featuring David Banner)

The lead single from his “The Point of It All” album and a song that really showed his versatility as an artist.

4) Best of Me

This song was chosen as the final single from his “Back to Love” album and is a breezy r&b ballad that shows Hamilton is a different light; as did much of the album.

3) Can’t Let Go

Anthony Hamilton really showed his vulnerability and poured out his heart on the soulful ballad “Can’t Let Go”.

2) The Point of it All

In contrast to some of his singles dealing with heartbreak, Hamilton created a timeless love ballad with “The Point of it All”.

1) Charlene

The song that defines his career to date and helped turn him into the soul star he is today.

Everybody
Never Love Again
Never Give Up

    Love is an angry thing is currently my new fave! I love him so much.Slightly disagree on your top 10 picks. Dear Life and Her Heart which are both stellar songs didn’t make the cut, and Pray for me.
