I just finished watching the official video for Sequel, from latest album by the incredible B.Slade™. Diesel is a fantastic Primer for R&B music, from start to finish. The album is teeming with groove lines, seemingly inspired by some of the greats of the genre, channeling decades of music into a full collection of 18 songs. The release of this video brings forth an amazing song, one of my favorites from Diesel. Sultry, suggestive, and smouldering, B. Slade brings the heat and the heart like he was channeling the great Marvin Gaye, preaching to an aroused choir.
Good Lord, after watching that, I felt like I needed a cigarette, or maybe a nap, or perhaps a shower... It is an amazing combination of the sensual and the sexual, romance with a leer. It is truly a wonderful and amazingly balanced performance.
