Editor Pick: Houston “Ain’t Nothing Wrong”

It’s unfortunate his eye gouging incident will overshadow basically everything Houston did musically. I’m not sure how many people actually remember this song, but it actually is a really nice track. I’m not really sure what Houston is doing these…

Editor Pick: Deborah Cox “My First Night With You” (Written by Babyface & Dianne Warren)

[audio:http://www.ykigs.com/1094.mp3] It was always been a head scratcher to me how Deborah Cox released this song on her self titled debut album in 1995, and then Mya released her own version of the song a few years later on her…

New Music: Babyface “Flashback” (Produced by Stargate)

I’m just going to go out on a limb and predict this is a demo song for someone else. I just don’t feel like this Stargate produced track is really the type of song we would expect from Babyface at…

For today’s classic vibe, “You’re Makin Me High” was a number one single by Toni and was the result of the collaboration between Babyface (who can be heard on background vocals) and Bryce Wilson (formerly or Groove Theory). This was…

Classic Vibe: Babyface "For the Cool in You" (1993)

Even though it may never have been reflected in record sales, I’ve always felt that Babyface was one of the most talented artists in r&b. Besides his silky smooth voice, he is also a masterful writer who has penned hits…

New Music: Tyrese “Make It Last” featuring Jewel (Produced by Babyface)

A new song from an unlikely pairing in Tyrese and pop singer Jewel has surfaced today on a song called “Make It Last” produced by Babyface. Apparently, the song was meant for the soundtrack to the Transformers 2 movie but…

Classic Vibe: Jon B. "Someone to Love" featuring Babyface (1995)

When Jon B. was discovered by Babyface and eventually released his solo album with his help, he quickly become known for being a white man singing in an r&b genre dominated by African Americans. However, songs like today’s classic r&b…
